- Fog inter-cooling gives additional boost
- Reduces fuel consumption
Fog evaporative cooling
Direct turbine inlet fogging (cooling) is a method of cooling where demineralized water is converted into a fog of very small water droplets by means of special atomizing nozzles operating at 2,000psi (138bar) pressure. The fog provides evaporative cooling when it evaporates in the air inlet duct of the gas turbine.
This technique allows 100% evaporation effectiveness so it is possible to attain 100% relative humidity at the gas turbine inlet. The inlet air is, therefore, cooled to the ambient wet bulb temperature.
Overspray fogging systems
High-pressure inlet fogging can also be used to create a compressor intercooling effect by allowing liquid fog droplets to enter the compressor, where they evaporate when the air is heated by compression. This technique is called overspray fogging or wet compression.
Injecting liquid fog into a gas turbine compressor at a rate of 2% of the air mass flow can provide a power boost of as much as 10%. Mee Industries has made many installations of systems that are used for both evaporative cooling and overspray fogging. The combined power boost can be as high as 25%.
Fog systems for the offshore industry
Mee Industries’ fog system technology makes it possible to produce 20% more power output from gas turbines that are used to generate electricity or to compress natural gas for transportation, re-injection wells, etc.
Offshore MeeFog systems are specially designed to be compact and lightweight. Integral water treatment systems are also available. Our design team can customize systems to suit your needs and requirements.
Inlet air fogging for gas turbines
Mee Industries is the world leader in gas turbine inlet air fogging for power augmentation. We have been making fog systems for gas turbine applications since the early 1990s and have successfully completed more than 700 installations.
We offer efficient and cost-effective solutions for all types and sizes of gas turbines. Mee Industries will work with you every step of the way to ensure your project is a complete success.
Inlet air fogging services
Our services include feasibility studies, detailed fog system engineering, full equipment supply, including water treatment, water storage tanks, controls integration, installation or installation supervision, commissioning and testing, operator training, and after-sale service and support.
Air-cooled heat exchanger cooling technology
Mee fog systems can also be applied for cooling large air-cooled heat exchangers, boosting compressor throughput and efficiency, and any other processes that may benefit from large-scale evaporative cooling.
Products and Services
Mee Industries' new high-pressure filter simplifies nozzle maintenance. Pump seals degrade over time causing small particles of seal material to enter into the high-pressure feedlines which can plug fog nozzle filters. The high-pressure filter captures particles and reduces nozzle filter pluggingRead more
