SprayView™ is an optional fuel spray testing system for the SR-30™ Gas Turbine Engine manufactured by Turbine Technologies, Ltd. It has been designed with a built-in engine spray manifold to allow MiniLab™ operators the ability to test the atomization characteristics of fuels before they are actually burned in the engine. Proper atomization verification is especially important for testing of alternative fuel formulations such as bio-diesels. Improper spray patterns signify fuel formulations that are not compatible with the existing engine fuel injection system. Attempting to run an engine with these non-conforming fuel formulations could potentially damage it.
The SprayView™ system also allows MiniLab™ operators to remove their actual SR-30™ Engine Fuel Spray Manifold and test it for proper operation. Injector nozzles can be inspected for any build-up of contaminants and can be conveniently cleaned for continued reliable performance when reinstalled on the engine. Periodic checks in this manner, especially when testing experimental fuel formulations, can reduce the chances of injector clogging, essentially eliminating potential engine operating problems.
