Design of exhaust stack protection

Our client had experienced fire in the gas turbine exhaust stack due to hot oil leak, and ComputIT was engaged to design a water nozzle system to control such a fire.

The video to the left shows an example of poor performance of the nozzles, while the video to the right shows example of good performance. The only design difference is the angel of the nozzles. The videos demonstrate the difference in the ability for water penetration downwards towards the pool that is located at the bottom of the stack. It is cruicial for fire mitigation for this problem to transport the water droplets into this region. Simulations are done with KFX®.
