Abstract

The present invention proposes a trapezoid shaped floating baffle as a silencer baffle. The silencer baffles are placed in a vertical duct of a gas turbine. Such a shape of silencer baffles allows them to be replaced from a horizontal duct to the vertical duct. The horizontal duct act as transition between inlet and filter house. Therefore, one duct part is removed and insulation is provided only to the vertical duct and not up to the horizontal duct

FLOATING BAFFLES

BACKGROUND

The present invention relates generally to a gas turbine and more particularly to structural arrangement of a floating baffle in the gas turbine.

Generally, silencer baffles are placed in a horizontal duct. A transition duct is placed between inlets to a filter house. The transition duct is required to connect the horizontal duct and the filter house.  Insulation is required till the horizontal duct where silencer baffles are placed. The silencer baffles attenuates noise emanating from gas turbine compressor to acquire local noise code regulation.

A conventional technique includes a rectangular frame with two spaced apart and parallel end members interconnected by two-spaced part and substantially parallel length members as silencer in the gas turbine. However, the conventional technique is not efficient and requires complete insulation of the frame.


It would be desirable to have an efficient technique to reduce insulation in the gas turbine.
