Testing a Starfighter Engine
Our GE J79-19 turbojet, out of an Italian air force Starfighter, being put through its paces, and burning several hundred gallons of sweet Jet-A in the process. My rear-engine camera was blown down the field, rescued and put on intake monitoring duty. It still couldn't keep still. I held my main camera, standing as close as I dared to the afterburner nozzle, and my knees actually buckled a bit every time it lit off. This engine makes some smoke because it has standard combustors (see my combustor videos), and passed the test with ease. It ran like a Swiss watch, er... like an Italian turbojet !

Siemens SGT 800 50 MW Gas Turbine - How does it work
The SGT-800 gas turbine is available in three versions with power output of 47.5, 50.5 and 53.0 MW respectively. The industrial gas turbine combines a robust, reliable design with high efficiency and low emissions. This makes it an ideal choice for municipal and industrial power generation, refineries, and the oil and gas industry. Its high Exhaust energy content makes the SGT-800 particularly well suited for combined heat and power and combined-cycle applications. Reliability, environmental compatibility, and low lifecycle costs are the key features of the SGT-800: With up to 60,000 operating hours (EOH) between major overhauls, low maintenance costs, and an excellent electrical efficiency, the SGT-800 achieves the lowest lifecycle costs and the best combined-cycle efficiency within its class. The SGT-800 can burn numerous fuels, e.g., from liquid fuel to natural gas. The maintenance options include on-site maintenance or modular overhaul, as well as the option for off-site maintenance with quick engine exchange for maximized availability. Benefits Gas turbine available in three ratings; 47.5 MW, 50.5 MW and 53.0 MW, with competitive lifecycle costs: plant design with focus on investment cost, availability, cycle efficiency, emissions, operational flexibility and long service life Designed according to international codes, standards and directives and with HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) compliance Best emissions performance in the 40-60 MW(e) class on dual fuel (dry) in the 50-100% load range "Best in class" gas turbine in combined heat and power plants and combined cycle plants within the 40-60 MW(e) class Core engine with industrial design, single shaft (two tilting pad bearings), cold-end drive, and 3rd generation DLE system On-load fuel-changeover capability (gas to oil and oil to gas) Load rejection capability with ample margin to trip speed Flexible service concept for onsite maintenance - hot section "strip", modules or gas turbine replacement.
