GTRC Gas Mixing Facility

Due to the requirement for combustor flexibility, the centre employs a multi-line gas mixing facility. Each supply is fed from the external fuel storage compound, with independent Coriolis mass-flow measurement and proportional valve control.

The facility also has additional, dedicated specialist supply lines: Up to 20 g/s CO2 can be provided from a liquid vaporiser to simulate exhaust gas recirculation for emissions reduction, alongside an electrically heated steam supply system with precise, mass-flow control. Oxy-combustion is facilitated through the use of a clean O2 line, housing specialist valve and sealant materials. Finally, one fuel line also has specialist EPDM seals, fitted for NH3 applications.
