The work is a laboratory investigation of the effect of different liquids and liquid flow rates on the metal temperature of a gas turbine T vaporizer. Most of the experimentation was carried out using JP5. A limited number of runs using Diesel Fuel Marine and calibration runs using water provided additional data for different fluids. Conditions that approach local liquid depletion inside the vaporizer were identified by monitoring local overheating of the vaporizer metal. Because of apparatus limitations, testing was carried out only at vaporizer pressure and liquid flow rates approaching idle engine operation. An experimental correlation was developed allowing estimation of the mean vaporizer temperature as a function of input conditions and fluid properties.
