This paper reviews Harrison Radiator’s various designs and improvements in the Industrial Gas Turbine Regenerator that it has been supplying over the past 20 years, and describes a new design regenerator intended for high cyclic and/or high temperature operation. Design improvements and surface changes have occurred to keep pace with the changing consumer’s requirements and application. These changes have been effective in improving the cyclic ability of the regenerator and in reducing the field maintenance required on the earlier models due to the changing mode of operation. The new regenerator design has been created to meet the changing requirements of the applications.
