BRAYTON CLOSED CYCLE GAS TURBINE STUDY FOR LNG RELIQUEFACTION SYSTEM
The closed Brayton type cycle, which offers several advantages over a conventional gas turbine for marine and industrial use. As the engine operates on a sealed circuit, clean dry gas is continuously recirculated through the unit at pressures of from 200 lb/sq in. to 500 lb/sq in. This ensures a relatively corrosion-free operation and low maintenance costs for the rotating elements, while the specific fuel consumption, due to the turbines high efficiency, is comparable with that of a diesel engine. Initially the study, which will be carried out by the AiResearch Manufacturing Co. is for a 9000 shp turbine to be developed for a reliquefaction plant for an LNG tanker.
