Gas turbines can work at elevated temperatures but materials used in the manufacturing gas turbines limits the temperature. Turbine blades will get ruined which decreases the efficiency and life.

Temperature can vary with metallurgy (coating) of Combustor & Turbine blades. Our turbine (Model - LM 6000) temperature @combustor is 1200 degree celsius.

In gas turbine combustor design on wet low noxes or dry low nox the temp of gas turbine controlled according to emissions and gas turbine metallurgy design.

All above right but tungsten maximum temperature limit 2390c. There fore in a question not clarify which type material of the blade? There reasons 1000 also true in answer.

All gas turbine working temperature is 700 degree Celsius . But the over temperature and trip temperature is 1000 degree Celsius.

Water cooled blades in a gas turbine can work at beyond 1100 degree Celsius. While normal gas turbine can work around 800 degree Celsius.

Yes, 1000 also correct answer.

Chiranjeev said: (Jul 18, 2017)  
Temperatures in Gas Turbines can go beyond 1500 ° celsius at combustion chamber.

Ashish said: (Jan 2, 2018)  
Yes, we took 700 and For safety reasons we don't go beyond this value, there is high temperature trip is provided on the system.

Vignesh said: (Feb 2, 2018)  
Yes, even 1000°C is also right depending upon the material used it can withstand even elevated temperatures.

700° is correct for getting efficient efficiency.
