  • Patent number: 10724436
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for separating particles from an inlet airflow of a turbine engine has a centerbody with a radially outer scavenge conduit. The inlet airflow has entrained particulate matter, which can impact an impact surface defining part of the centerbody. The impact surface can be disposed at an angle or have a low coefficient of restitution to reduce the velocity of the incoming particulate matter. The particulate matter is radially diverted radially outward through the scavenge conduit, unable to make a turn defined by the shape of the centerbody.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: January 21, 2016
    Date of Patent: July 28, 2020
    Assignee: General Electric Company
    Inventors: Jeffrey Carl Mayer, Apostolos Pavlos Karafillis, John Alan Manteiga, Courtney Ann Kiszewski, Kyle Earl Roland Henry, Craig Douglas Young
  • Patent number: 10400670
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for separating particles from an inlet airflow of a turbine engine has a centerbody with at least one radially outward scavenge conduit. The inlet airflow has entrained particulate matter, which can impact an impact surface defining part of the centerbody. The particulate matter is radially diverted outward through at least one inlet to a scavenge conduit, unable to make a turn defined by the shape of the centerbody.
