  • Biofuel treatment
  • Crude oil treatment
  • Diesel engine liquid fuel treatment
  • Gas turbine liquid fuel treatment
  • Heavy fuel oil treatment
  • Lube oil treatment
  • Oil-water-solids separation
  • Fuel conditioning
  • Fuel forwarding
  • System engineering

Our high-performance equipment to increase power plant efficiency includes:

  • Centrifugal disc stack separators for liquid-liquid-solid separation
  • Fuel conditioning modules (Westfalia Separator® ViscoBoosterUnit) for diesel engines
  • Fuel forwarding units for gas turbines

Fuel oil treatment systems for gas turbine power stations

Power producers operating gas turbine power plants can save enormous costs by installing fuel oil treatment systems in their gas turbine power plants. Efficient treatment of diesel oil, heavy fuel oil and crude oil drastically reduces the gas turbine blades’ susceptibility to corrosion. This means the time until the next overhaul is significantly extended.

Overhauling a gas turbine (including power outage) is very cost-intensive. Treatment systems from GEA Westfalia Separator therefore protect the core investment of the plant – the gas turbine. If stand-by liquid fuel is used, gas-fired power plants also need a fuel oil treatment system from GEA Westfalia Separator.

Centrifugal separation systems for diesel engines

The power generation industry often uses diesel engines that burn heavy fuel oil, crude oil or diesel oil. By supplying separation systems specifically designed for continuous operation under the roughest conditions, GEA Westfalia Separator provides for optimum power output and a long service life for these engines while taking into consideration the high environmental standards.

Self-cleaning separators with Westfalia Separator unitrol systems automatically monitor the water level in the oil and the separation of the solid material ’round the clock’. As a result, optimum separation efficiency for different fuel and lube oils is ensured. Normally servicing is necessary only after 8,000 to 16,000 operating hours.

Surveillance-free operation also reduces personnel costs tremendously. The accumulated oil sludge can be processed directly in the power station, thereby reducing the disposal costs considerably. All separation systems are available as modules. Other ready-to-connect systems are also available as compact units in combination with components such as Westfalia Separator ViscoBoosterUnit (VBU) or plate heat exchangers (PHE).
