Evap coolers to be placed in gas turbines

McGuffy Systems, Inc., Cypress, TX, purchased 80 TURBIdek evaporative cooling systems from Systems Division of Munters Corp., Fort Myers, FL, to be installed onto Pratt & Whittney manufactured gas turbines.

McGuffy manufactures carbon steel inlet air filter houses, a key component of gas turbines used in the power generation industry, and will spend $1.3 million on the cooling systems.

“The TURBIdek system, when added to the inlet air house, will increase the output of cooler, denser air, giving gas turbines a higher mass flow rate and pressure ration,” said Larry Klekar, sales manager for Munters. “The result is an increase in turbine power output and efficiency.”

The first Pratt & Whittney turbine units built will be headed to the Midwest region, into areas that realized power capacity problems during last summer’s heat wave.
