GE’s F-class enhanced compressor offers solutions for numerous components—such as Inlet Guide Vanes (IGV), forward (R0), mid-stage rotating blades, forward-stage stator vanes (s0-s4), and aft stage vanes (s14 – s16).
The S5 vane for flared F-class compressors has been re-engineered to increase robustness and has been fully validated via instrumented unit test. The robust S5 builds upon the enhanced S5 as it also incorporates the vane base load dams.
Robust S5 benefits:
Based on years of compressor development experience and extensive testing and validation with the Enhanced Compressor, GE has now introduced its latest compressor advancement.
Flared high output benefits:
Our product developments have been field-proven to reduce degradation and known stress drivers in their given areas. We've been able to continually learn from more than 10 million hours of EC operation.
The Enhanced Little Foot option has been added to Package 4 for customers with cycle time constraints. The added reliability from machining the casing with a Big Foot dovetail can be replaced with an Enhanced Little Foot to cut down your outage by up to four days.
Explore our package options, which can be installed either as part of a major inspection—or even over a long weekend.
