Solar Turbines introduced SoLoNOx™ in 1992 as a low emissions option for the company's gas turbines rated at 3.5 MW and above. Solar®gas turbines with SoLoNOx use lean-premixed combustion technology to ensure uniform air/fuel mixture and to prevent formation of regulated pollutants. Our customers worldwide have ordered or installed over 2400 gas turbines equipped with SoLoNOx for a number of reasons:
We have more than 95,000,000 operating hours with SoLoNOx technology and have saved an estimated 3,300,000 tons of NOx emissions since introduction.
Both natural gas and dual fuel (diesel #2/distillate or natural gas) optionsare available.
Solar gas turbines with SoLoNOx are designed to meet most exhaust emission regulations throughout the world during operation at 50-100% engine load across all ambient temperatures above -18degC (0degF).
Dry, lean-premixed combustion technology means gas turbines with SoLoNOx generally do not require post-combustion clean-up devices to meet emissions requirements.
Gas turbines equipped with SoLoNOx provide the same power and heat rate as equivalent engine models with conventional combustion technology.
