Flame Scanner Accessory Parts for ITS 184X0254M-Series
Developed from our customers' needs
Water Cooling System for Flame Scanners used for Heavy Duty Gas Turbines
It is not advisable for large heavy duty gas turbines to function without any given type of cooling system for the used Flame Scanner. The turbine heats up its environment to such a degree that a Flame Scanner can rapidly reach its operational limits, which in turn can lead to dangerous operation faults. The temperature resistance of the electronic parts is usually the limiting factor in this specific process.
With our Water Cooling System ITS 184X0251M621, it is ensured that the temperature within the surface of the Flame Scanners where the electronics are retained, is kept at a level in which the electronic components can thrive and be fully operational.
It is however noteworthy that the Flame Scanner by ITS is compatible with all water cooling systems, whereas the Water Cooling System by ITS is compatible with the Industrial Turbine Services Flame Scanner ITS 184X0254M-Series only. It is because our water cooling system is built to fit very closely to the ITS Flame Scanner that it is in fact possible to reduce more heat than its counterparts.
Due to our extensive experience and knowledge with gas turbines and the Flame Scanner specifically, we have developed and manufactured this water cooling system with a special emphasis on robustness and durability as these are necessary factors for large turbines. We have succeeded in increasing the temperature range at which our ITS 184X0254M029 Flame Scanner can be utilized.
The water cooling system is also available together with the Flame Scanner as a pre-configured Set ITS 184X0251M941.
Flame Scanner Cable Protection
There are many issues with the flame monitoring process which result from broken or abraded connection cables. Damages to the cable caused by vibrations or careless maintenance personnel can hamper the effectiveness and accuracy, or even the functionality of the flame scanning system and the safe operation of the gas turbine.
Therefore we have anticipated the needs of our customers by producing a more sophisticated alternative to the OEM Part. This part consists of a metal hose covering the cable from the Flame Scanner to the junction box.
With either a 90° or straight connector depending on your needs, you can connect the hose structure to the Flame Scanner and the junction box easily. These pieces by ITS are made out of stainless steel, instantly increasing the sustainability of not only the tube type but also the cable which it protects. The plug is a part according MIL specification, the protective tube meets international industrial standards.
The Cable Protection System ITS 184X0251M911 is also available together with the Flame Scanner ITS 184X0254M029 as pre-configured Set ITS 184X0251M921.
Flame Scanner Technology Upgrade
UV Flame Sensors, based on the Geiger-Mueller Principle, have been used for many years in gas turbines worldwide. The accuracy of their sensors are adversely affected by the water vapor developing during the combustion in the combustion chamber. Modern Flame scanners, operating with a Silicon Carbide (SiC) photo diode, are less sensitive to this phenomenon.
Since the two sensor technologies provide different output values for disposal, the use of modern Flame Scanners on MARK V control systems, has not been possible for a long time.
The ITS 184X0251M521 Conversion Module (PR Electronics 4222) converts the signal provided by a Flame Scanner with a SiC photo diode into information readable for the MARK V Gas Turbine control system. Hence you get more accurate information about the quality of the combustion as well as about the health of your gas turbine.
The Conversion Module has the possibility to use modern flame scanner technology on proven gas turbine control systems as MARK V. This can be successfully achieved without changing the mechanical or electrical presets of the gas turbine or the control system.
The Conversion System is also available together with the Flame Scanner ITS 184X0254M029 as a pre-configured Set ITS 184X0251M961.
ITS 184X0251M621 - Water Cooling Coil
The Flame Scanner Water Cooling Coil, used for the ITS 184X0254M029 Flame Scanner only, will circulate water in a temperature range of 10°C(50°F) to 57°C(135°F) making it possible for the Flame Scanner to work up to a ambient temperature of 235°C(455°F). The uncooled Flame Scanner has a working range of -29°C(-20°F) to 150°C(302°F). For the water supply, a standard 1/2” NPT thread is used as it is available on the turbine normally. The water flow rate is 3.8lpm(1.0 gpm).
With the ITS Water Cooling Coil more heat can be eliminated from the Flame Scanner as it connects to a larger surface on the Flame Scanner than its predecessor from the original manufacturer. The part was purposely designed for robustness and durability to correspond to the requirements in the turbine area.
ITS Industrial Turbine Services is the first in its field to develop and manufacture this specific product. It is built from stainless steel which ensures that it is able to bear high temperatures which in turn allows for the Flame Scanner to function accurately for a longer period of time.
