SprayViewTM is an optional fuel spray testing system for the SR-30TM Gas Turbine Engine. It has been designed with a built-in engine spray manifold to allow MiniLabTM operators the ability to test the atomization characteristics of fuels before they are actually burned in the engine. Proper atomization is important for testing alternative fuel formulations such as bio-diesels. Improper spray patterns signify nonconforming fuel formulations and can cause engine damage.
The SprayViewTM system also allows MiniLabTM operators to remove their actual SR-30TM Engine Fuel Spray Manifold and test it for proper operation. Injector nozzles can be inspected for any build-up of contaminants and can be conveniently cleaned for continued reliable performance when reinstalled on the engine.
SprayViewTM features a clear view spray observation chamber allowing the operator to visually inspect the fuel spray pattern. Integrated impingement plates can be lined up under each spray nozzle to verify their spray integrity. The injected fuel is colleced in a tank, which can be conveniently drained after the tests. An integrated spray throttling system allows the operator to vary the fuel spray to determine the optimum spray atomization “cloud” for a particular fuel.
SprayViewTM is primarily offered as an accessory to the MiniLabTM Gas Turbine Power System. With the growing need to do more with existing equipment, the MiniLabTM Gas Turbine Power System finds itself being used by undergraduate students working to gain an understanding of the Brayton Power Cycle as well as researchers testing alternative fuel formulations for performance and emissions results. The ability to verify fuel integrity and to check an existing SR30TM engine fuel manifold for potential fuel injector clogging contaminants are major considerations for using the SprayViewTM.
