Abstract

The present invention relates to fossil turbines and more particularly to setscrews connected in fossil turbines. The setscrews are rigidly attached to a stationary casing or shell. During servicing, setscrews are backed out and enable replacement of a spill. Setscrews are used with backing-out protection such as staking, rolled-over, and knurled feature to attach inserted spills into stationary shell or casing.

FIXED REPLACEABLE SPILL STRIP

BACKGROUND

The present invention relates generally to fossil turbines and more particularly to spill strips configured in fossil turbines.

During inlet/admission stage of large fossil turbines, there is highly unsteady flow of high energy. As a result, conventional spring-backed spill strips flutter and/or fret. Also, in course of time, the spill strips are worn out and damaged.

A conventional technique includes an improved fuel line connector for connecting a fuel line connection valve. The fuel line connector includes an improved, replaceable tip seal mounted on the tip or nose of the tip or nose of the connector valve. The tip seal provides an additional effective face seal between the connector body and the cylinder outlet valve. The tip seal present on the fuel line connector is maintained and replaced by a user using the vehicle or filling the fuel cylinder.

Other conventional techniques provide either spring backed conventional spill or welded spill or caulked spill.

However, the above mentioned conventional techniques do not provide replaceability and serviceability of spill strips.

Therefore there is a need in the art for a technique that provides spill strips which are easily replaced and serviceable.
