- A recognized alternative for firing gas turbines with ash bearing fuels is the externally fired cycle. An essential component for such a cycle is a gas-to-gas heat exchanger capable of tolerating temperatures up to 2300/sup 0/F. Shell and tube heat exchangers having extended surface geometry have been developed for low pressure applications. Several units are presently in industrial service as air-preheaters for high temperature forge furnaces. The ability of the basic heat exchanger technology to withstand typical industrial gas turbine pressures was confirmed in the laboratory several years ago. In order to interest prospective manufacturers or users of the exhaust fired cycle, a pressure retention verification test emerged as an essential step. The execution and results of such an experiment are described.
