Siemens touts 3D printing for turbine emissions reductions

3D printing of DLE pre-mixer simplfies production process, improves geometry of the component, allowing a better fuel-air mix

Siemens said it has successfully 3D-printed and engine tested a dry low emission (DLE) pre-mixer for the SGT-A05 aeroderivative gas turbine, saying it shows a potential for significant reductions in CO emissions.

“This is another excellent example of how additive manufacturing is revolutionizing our industry, delivering measurable benefits and real value to our customers, particularly as they look to further reduce emissions to meet environmental targets,” said Vladimir Navrotsky, chief technology officer for Siemens Power Generation Services, Distributed Generation. “Our achievements using AM are paving the way for greater agility in the design, manufacturing and maintenance of power generation components.”
