Initial Applications of the Orenda OT-4 Recuperated Gas Turbine 670966

Development of a 600 hp twin-shaft gas turbine with plate-fin recuperators has been proceeding successfully through the component and engine factory test phases. Since there has been no prior field experience with this type of engine, the need for prototype engine operation in representative installations is greater than usual. Experience to date with the design, assembly, and initial operation of the turbine in Army experimental tracked vehicles, a minesweeper, and a highway tractor are described.
