RE: AMT Mercury start up
Hi, what I had with a Pegasus Turbine, is that after some 2 years of use, it had more and more problems to ignite on gaz, especially the first start of the day.
It happened to be that some, in the combustion chamber, gaz diffusors were stucked from combustion deposits... Thus the gaz wouldn't spread regularly and ignition was hard to achieve.
The solution was given from the Swiss AMT Representant, Mr Franz WÃ¤lti from Jet-Tech, you should inject compressed air at 150 to 200 bars through the gaz inlet for about 30 seconds.
This will clean the diffusors. After that, my turbine started again on the first attempt.
The problem is to get a little tube to connect the air bottle and the turbine at 150bars....
Might be good to try... Good luck.
