Used by the oil and gas sector, GE’s DLN-1 IBH (Inlet Bleed Heating) combustion system for FR5-2 Gas Turbines enables Frame 5-2 gas turbines running at partial load to meet nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission standards. Frame 5-2 turbines are natural-gas fired turbines used for oil and gas mechanical drive applications such as liquefying natural gas.
GE's DLN-1 IBH combustion system for FR5-2 gas turbines helps customers meet NOx emissions standards for existing gas turbines without using the additional fuel needed to operate above optimum loads. Installing GE's DLN-1 IBH combustion system on a Frame 5-2 turbine operating at partial load for 4,200 hours annually enables the turbine to operate at 50% rather than 80% load, lowering NOx emissions from 80 to 42 parts per million or by approximately 56 metric tons per year. This is equivalent to the annual NOx emissions of more than 3,200 cars on U.S. roads.
