Progress report: Gas turbine regenerator fouling investigation
Kohler, Henry L.
MetadataShow full item record
A report on the progress of an experimental investigation of fouling effects in compact gas turbine regenerator matrices is presented. Fouling effects on heat transfer rates and pressure drop characteristics for a number of matrix geometries and two exhaust gas temperatures are presented. Preliminary results indicate gas side surface temperature and gas composition as the primary parameters with geometric effects occupying a lesser role. The effect of fouling on pressure drop characteristics is found to be more pronounced than the effect on heat transfer. Plans for continuation of the investigation are presented.
