HEAVY-DUTY MARINE GAS TURBINE PROJECT. TASK 3. FUEL CONDITIONING SYSTEM IMPROVEMENT. FINAL REPORT. VOLUME B. TOTAL SYSTEM AND DEVELOPMENT INVESTIGATIONS

This document describes part of the work performed within Task 3, Fuel Conditioning System Improvement, of the Heavy-Duty Gas Turbine Development Program, or MARAD Project. The MARAD Project is an integrated effort to develop the heavy-duty gas turbine as an alternate competitive form of marine power generation. This Volume B of the Task 3 final report covers total system investigations, with the work on the automatic fuel analysis instrument described in Volume A. Task efforts have established the optimum viable automatic fuel conditioning system. This system is necessary to remove the sodium and inhibit the vanadium found in residual fuel oils. This system consists of: (a) automatic fuel analysis instrument; (b) semi-automatic fuel treatment and processing equipment; and (c) double day tanks. In addition, a practical and economic simplification of this system has been synthesized. This system is simpler and 25% smaller than the current system.
