Navigating fire risks in gas turbine enclosures: balancing power generation and safety

The gas turbine has become an important, widespread, and reliable device in the field of power generation.

Gas turbine enclosures house powerful engines fundamental in various industrial applications, from electricity generation to heavy machinery. These enclosures contain complex machinery that operates at extremely high temperatures and pressures.

This environment makes them particularly susceptible to fire hazards, especially in sectors like oil and gas, where they are extensively used for gas pipeline transmission, operating compressors in gas gathering systems, and pressurizing oil fields. Combining high-energy processes and flammable materials necessitates stringent fire safety measures to protect the equipment and personnel.

The Fire Risk

  • Gas turbines operate at extreme pressures and temperatures, often exceeding 2000°F, creating an environment ripe for ignition due to combustion.
  • The complex electrical systems in gas turbines can experience faults or short circuits, potentially leading to sparks or fires.
  • They contain all the components of the fire triangle (fuel, heat, and oxygen) in a super-charged state while being encased within an enclosure.
  • Lube oil, moving parts, hoses, wiring, and instrumentation further exacerbate the fire hazard.
