Solar Turbines Incorporated is a subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc. that designs, manufactures, and services industrial gas turbine systems and compressors for use in the oil and gas, power generation, and industrial markets. The company was founded in the 1920s and is headquartered in San Diego, California, USA.
Solar Turbines offers a wide range of gas turbine systems, including the Titan, Centaur, Mercury, and Taurus series. These gas turbine systems are used for a variety of applications, such as power generation, oil and gas production, mechanical drive, and combined heat and power (CHP) systems.
The Titan 350, Titan 250, Titan 130, Mars 100, Mars 90, Taurus 70, Taurus 60, Centaur 50, Centaur 40 and Saturn 20 are all models of gas turbine offered by Solar Turbines Incorporated.
The Titan 350, Titan 250 and Titan 130 are models of gas turbine with power outputs of approximately 1,500 horsepower, 900 horsepower, and 400 horsepower respectively.
The Mars 100 and Mars 90 are specifically designed for use in oil and gas production and power generation applications, with power outputs of approximately 4,500 horsepower and 3,500 horsepower, respectively.
The Taurus 70 and Taurus 60 are models of gas turbine with power outputs of approximately 70,000 horsepower and 60,000 horsepower respectively.
The Centaur 50 and Centaur 40 are models of gas turbine with power outputs of approximately 50,000 horsepower and 40,000 horsepower respectively.
The Saturn 20 is model of gas turbine with power outputs of approximately 20,000 horsepower.
All of these turbine models are based on the closed-cycle gas turbine technology, which uses a closed loop of helium or other inert gas as the working fluid. They are designed to be efficient, reliable and easy to maintain.
