We are proud to announce that we’ve entered into a new partnership with Parker Hannifin, the global leader in Motion and Control Technologies. We have been officially commissioned as an Authorized Distributor of Parker’s Inlet Fogging Macrospray Nozzles for both heavy-duty and aeroderivative gas turbines.
Greg Young, our President and CEO, is excited for the collaboration: “We believe this integration is a perfect fit for customers who are looking for high-quality products delivering value to their operations,” he says. “With our newly expanded Parker alliance, AP+M’s product availability and global reach keeps operators running wherever they are, whenever they need support.”
The folks over at Parker agree too–Keith Bayer, Director of the Global Energy Platform says “Parker is pleased to have an agreement in place with AP+M to sell our Macrospray nozzle products into the Gas Turbine market place. AP+M’s market expertise and customer service focus will allow us to best take care of our existing customer base and provide a strong partner to expand our presence in the power augmentation market.”
Inlet Fogging nozzles enhance the performance of heavy-duty and aeroderivative industrial gas turbine engines by cooling incoming air through water spray evaporation. This increases air density and mass flow rate, as well as provides a net boost in power output–particularly on hot, dry days.
Parker’s Macrospray Inlet Fogging Nozzles stand out from the competition in that they provide exceptional sprays and droplet sizes at lower operating pressures. The sprays are also uniform, free of streaks and voids and do not generate large droplets that have trouble evaporating. This results in less water wastage, a smaller potential for duct corrosion and slower compressor blade erosion. What’s more, Parker’s Macrospray Inlet Fogging Nozzles require up to 20% less water to generate the same increase in power output. Parker’s design and precision manufacturing processes also ensure highly repeatable, reliable spray performance between nozzles, improved durability and a longer nozzle life.
All in all, we couldn’t be more pleased to be an authorized distributor of such an innovative and high-quality product. The Parker Inlet Fogging Macrospray Nozzle allows for a cost-effective way to cool gas turbine inlet air and keep operations running at peak levels. We recognize the excellence of Parker’s products and pride ourselves on the continuous expansion of our Parker parts distribution list.
We will be highlighting our new partnership with Parker at the 2017 Western Turbine Users, Inc (WTUI). Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 19-21, 2017. Visit us at booth #405 to see the product and learn more about our committed alliance with Parker, and how that partnership can benefit you.
