  • 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

  • Patent number: 10119424
    Abstract: An attachment assembly for attaching a center structure to an outer structure at least partially circumscribing the center structure, the attachment assembly having a bushing provided within the center structure or the outer structure, the bushing defining a first through passage, a bushing adapter slidably mounted within the first through passage and defining a second through passage, a threaded passage provided on the other of the center structure or the outer structure and a bolt passing through the first through passage and the second through passage and threaded into the threaded passage.
