Gas turbines (principally designed in the same manner as jet engines) used for energy production have a unique ability to start up quickly. The turbines can also handle various forms of fuel. It is imperative that all valves used for gas turbines are not prone to clog.
Somas butterfly valves can be used thanks to the design of the seat and the unique triple eccentric design.
Find out more about applications and how Somas valves can be utilized within the areas below.
Somas bleed valves are used in gas turbines to handle excess air produced by the turbine compressors during start-up, stopping or turbo-cutoff.
Somas valves are used when air is drained from one or several of the gas turbine’s compressors. The air is used for various sealing applications.
Somas valves are used when air is drained from one or several of the gas turbine’s compressors. The air is used to cool different bearings on the turbine’s axis.
SomBook® is a tool where we have collected our many years of experience about valve options, material options as well as other important information about the valves we suggest for specific applications. Achieving the best possible result when using Somas control valves is important because using the right size valve can offer you a great opportunity to save money. The part covering “Power generation” gives you information on different applications and what kind of valve Somas recommends for each installation. It also covers recommendations on valve types for different medias.
