Braden Manufacturing, LLC is a global leader in the power generation industry for design, manufacture, installation and retrofit of auxiliary equipment for gas turbines.
Braden's products cover the entire auxiliary scope for a gas turbine, from inlet air filter houses, inlet ducts and plenums with acoustic silencers and turbine enclosures to exhaust plenums or diffusers, outlet ducts, simple cycle stacks, exhaust silencers, or bypass damper and stack systems for combined cycle applications.
With thousands of systems in service for nearly every combustion turbine model, Braden has earned an international reputation for unparalleled quality and customer service.
Braden provides exhaust silencers, bypass stacks, expansion joints, exhaust diffusers, diverter dampers, exhaust stacks, ductwork, stack dampers, and CO / SCR systems. These professionally engineered systems have provided customers the right answers with long term solutions. Every exhaust system is designed and manufactured in accordance with specified code and site requirements.
Braden offers inlet system products: inlet ducts, externally and internally lined ducts, silencers, inlet plenums and expansion joints. These products are essential for reliable, high performance gas turbine operation. If you have an inlet air need, Braden has a system and a solution.
AIR FILTER HOUSING
Braden offers a complete line of inlet air treatment components, as well as comprehensive inlet air treatment systems. Our system products include two-stage barrier filters, pulse filter systems, anti-icing systems, intake cooling systems, evaporative coolers, and chiller coils.
RETROFIT / AFTERMARKET
Braden's retrofit strengths are divided into two categories: manufacture of products and supply of professional services. Our products include inlet plenums, inlet ducts and silencers, filter houses, inlet air cooling, anti-icing, filter elements, exhaust plenums, exhaust diffusers, exhaust ducts, stacks, silencers, and exhaust dampers.
Our services include construction (demolition and installation) by Williams Industrial Services, exhaust plenum upgrade, technical evaluations, technical analysis, on-site supervision, commissioning, and filter replacement.
Braden is uniquely qualified to provide our own complete line of inlet air treatment components. Braden has a large stock of inventory to meet your filter needs and can typically ship an order within a day. Braden offers pre-filters (PFS-4, PFS-4B, PFS4P), coalescer (CLS-2G), barrier (TriCel), self cleaning cartridges (ExCel), and static cartridge (SC).
INLET AIR COOLING
The cooler the air, the more dense it becomes. Braden designs and manufactures two types of inlet air cooling equipment: pad style evaporative coolers and chiller coils. Our chiller coils use mechanical chillers, absorption chillers, and / or thermal energy storage (ice harvesting). Evaporative coolers and chiller coils are available to provide cooling of the inlet air to improve the overall efficiency of the gas turbine cycle.
