Terry Announces New GLT Single-Stage Turbine

—Literature Available William L. Wathen, president of Terry Steam Turbine, Windsor, Conn., recently announced a small auxiliary turbine, the first new small turbine to be developed by the industry in 20 years.

The GLT solid-wheel, singlestage machines are designed to meet requirements of API 611 and are available in ratings to 200 hp. They feature total standardization, oilfree lubricating system, overhung design, innovative governor valve and tight shut-off trip valve, true centerline support and low installation and maintenance cost.

The unit's high temperature ball bearings are sealed and grease packed with an L-10 life in excess of 50,000 hours, and require no lubrication oil. The governor drive gear design is oversized for ruggedness and uses non-metallic gears which eliminate the need for a coupling and lube oil.

Reduced maintenance/parts costs are realized with features that include a one-piece body for the governor and tight shut-off trip and throttle valves, elimination of both valve bonnet and joint, single stem penetration and a valve system design that permits the trip valve to be opened against full line pressure.

GLT installation simplicity is achieved with such features as absolute standardization of the basic envelope, uniform mounting dimensions and uniform steam connections for all sized machines. Some popular control options are available, a solenoid trip, electronic tachometer and hand valves. Also available is a tungsten carbidecoated wheel for reduction of longterm maintenance costs where difficult wet steam conditions are encountered.

GLT turbines are available in ratings up to 200 hp. Inlet pressures and temperatures rating to 650 psig and 750 FFT-back pressure to 75 psig.
