A high temperature heat exchanger for use with a small gas turbine engine to produce a combined cycle power plant, where the heat exchanger includes ceramic heat exchange tubes of SiC that are tightly fitted to the heat exchanger so that no welds or brazing is used and prevent any thermal stresses between the tubes and the heat exchanger end plates or baffle plates. The heat exchanger includes an inner casing and an outer casing with the heat exchange tubes extending through the heat exchanger between the two casings, and the gas turbine engine operating...
We claim the following: 1. A combined cycle power plant comprising:a small gas turbine engine;a high temperature heat exchanger;the heat exchanger having an outer casing and an inner casing;a plurality of ceramic heat exchange tubes extending through the heat exchanger between the outer casing and the inner casing;the plurality of ceramic heat exchanger tubes forming a low temperature flow path through the heat exchanger;the ceramic heat exchange tubes being loosely fitted to the heat exchanger such that thermal stress does not form between the tubes and...
