Liquid to Dual Fuel - LM6000

This upgrade provides the capability to run either on gas or liquid fuel, with or without water injection for NOx control. The modifications consider the addition of dual-fuel manifolds with water injection capability, including metering, shut off valves, boost skid and controls update as needed.

  • Flexibility

What Can Upgrading Do for You?

  • Vastly improves the versatility of the package by allowing the LM6000 turbine to operate on either liquid fuel or natural gas
  • Improves operational flexibility by having the capability to switch from one fuel to another, and at full load with a CDP air-cooling system (if installed)

How we get you there

  • Upgrade includes on-engine, off-engine, and the off-package gas filtration skids, along with updated controls software and hardware, to yield a unit capable of operating on either natural gas or liquid fuel.
  • Main mechanical changes consist of installing all major components and piping to supply gas fuel from the customer connection (flanged outside of main base) to the on-engine gas fuel manifold.
  • Standard package components consist of a fuel-metering valve, shutoff valves, and check valves.
  • A gas fuel manifold and fuel hoses are installed on the turbine and the liquid fuel nozzles are replaced with dual fuel nozzles.
  • A gas purge system and a Compressor Discharge Pressure (CDP) purge system is also installed.
  • Gas fuel is used to purge the liquid fuel system while operating on gas fuel to prevent backflow from the combustor.
  • CDP air is used to purge the gas fuel system during liquid fuel operation to prevent coking of the gas fuel circuit and prevent backflow from the combustor.
  • Customers already configured for water injection can reuse the existing high pressure liquid fuel water injection pumps.
  • An optional CDP cooler can be added to allow fuel transfers at full load.
