Combustion Lab

High Pressure Combustion and Diagnostics

The GE Research Combustion Laboratory operates 10 high pressure test cells for advanced combustion research and development. The facility features a preheated, non-vitiated continuous air supply at flow rates up to 23 lb/s, temperatures as high as 1450°F, and pressures up to 800psig. The lab has a variety of fuels available including both gaseous (Natural gas, Propane, H2 fuel blends) and liquid fuels (Jet-A, No. 2 fuel oil). Test cells are equipped with low- and high-speed data acquisition systems, interlocks for laser safety, optically accessible pressure vessels and combustor sections for comprehensive laser-based and optical diagnostic measurements. Various optical and laser-based diagnostic systems are available to characterize flow field properties including fuel/air mixing, flame heat release, gas temperature and pollutant emissions. The combustion laboratory is home to world recognized leaders in the fields of gas turbine combustion and applied optical diagnostics.
