Gas Turbine Tuning

Gas Turbine Tuning optimizes the performance of the gas turbine unit. Concentrations of O2, CO and NOx are measured while the turbine owner fine tunes the operating parameters in order to optimize turbine performance.  LEHDER provides real-time, instantaneous O2, CO, and NOx measurements to assist in the process.

Performance Guarantee Testing

Performance guarantee tests are typically required to demonstrate the contractual performance requirements are met between the equipment manufacturers and source owners of Natural Gas Power Plants. Compliance tests may also be performed to meet the facility Environmental Compliance Approval requirements.

Typical test parameters include:

  • Combustion Gases (O2, CO2, CO, NOx)
  • Total Hydrocarbons (THC)
  • PM10 Particulate
  • Ammonia Slip (if using ammonia injection )
  • Volumetric Flow Rate to Determine Emission Rates

LEHDER typically uses U.S. EPA Methods to complete the performance guarantee tests. Test Protocols are submitted to the equipment manufacturers and source owners to ensure all testing is conducted using approved methodologies.
