Centrifuge Separators for Power Plants

Centrifugal separators from GEA are used in power plants to treat fuel oils and lube oils for turbines and diesel engines. Precision separation is essential to the smooth operation of generators. The result is a reliable, cost-effective supply of energy and efficient use of natural resources. An uninterrupted power supply requires systems that operate trouble-free, efficiently and reliably in all load ranges.

Power plants in extremely cold regions are exposed to fundamentally different environmental conditions than those installed in red hot desert regions. These adverse conditions are made even more difficult, depending on the region, by an immense difference in the quality of the fuels fed into the gas turbines or diesel engines of the power plants. But the goal is the same for both extremes: the energy must flow. Round-the-clock. With no exceptions.

Power plant concepts are required which work trouble-free, efficiently and environmentally friendly in all load ranges. The continuous treatment of fuel and lube oils for turbines and diesel engines is the key to reliable power supply.

The conceptual design of the treatment systems is precision work which is optimally adapted to the com­position of the fuels and oils used. The separators, for example, separate trace elements from the fuels which can cause corrosion damage at high exhaust gas temperatures. The reliable fuel desalting and solids separation reduces the corrosion to a technically realizable minimum and ensures smooth operation. Water, abrasion and impurities can likewise negatively impact the life of the plant components. In severe cases, there is a risk of unscheduled downtime and high breakdown costs.

The treatment systems from GEA are designed to assure constantly high availability. In all these fields of application, the OSE separator generation is entering a new dimension.
