"I really appreciate the opportunity to tour your facility and learn more about your products. I was really impressed with your building, lab setup and work environment at Camfil. We learned a lot about filters in general and have a much better understanding on different element types and their purposes in different environments. The demos and life size filters are a great aid to understanding your products and how they work. Also appreciate the awareness of what differentiates Camfils products from other suppliers. Thanks again and look forward to working with you in the future." Staff Design Engineer, OEM

"I wanted to thank you and your team again for having us up for training.  We had a great time, and the training was very valuable, especially for the young guys." Project Applications Engineer, OEM

"I am very impressed with the Test & Learn Center experience, and I'm not being polite. I thought I understood filtration but I learned a lot of things. We both learned from each other, and that's how it should be." Steve Ingistov, Principal Engineer, Watson Cogen

"The Test & Learn Center is a unique environment - it is a toy store for grown-ups. You have your products laid out, you have your test equipment laid out. We can talk about products, and if there’s any questions, you go over to the lab and play with it. As an engineer, I can’t ask for anything better." Senior Engineer, Power Company

“Great Training! The instructors providing training were very knowledge and made the learning very enjoyable. They provided real life examples and answered all of the questions. I would recommend this training.” Asset Reiliability (Engineer in Training), Pipeline Operator

"The Camfil project team and their state of the art facility was quite impressive during the two day training session hosted at their facility in Montreal. The session included some technical background on the importance of air intake systems for GG application, and in depth industry specific training on various filter designs and models. The training agenda was well paced, and focused on conversation between the Camfil team and the trainees, rather than a predetermined schedule . This led to productive discussions on industry specific challenges, which was a great takeaway for everyone involved. A highlight of the session was the testing of the filters in their on-site wind tunnel, where analysis of empirical data helped with conveying two important parameters in filter design: pressure drop and filter efficiency. Overall, it provided great learnings and provided new insight into the filter selection and the impact it has on operations. Would recommend to any group that works with filter systems in operations and maintenance." Asset Reiliability Team, Pipeline Operator

Test & Learn Center

When you operate in unpredictable conditions but the world relies on you for stable power, you need intelligent solutions that help you stay in control.

Considering 98% of your turbine input is ambient air,  we believe in understanding your environment to offer optimized protection. Air filtration offers protection that is invisible to the eye but has significant impacts, making it difficult but critical to understand. Without the right tools, how can you know if the filters do what they are supposed to? 

Learn how by visiting our GT filtration lab, where you can improve your air inlet filtration and gas turbine knowledge through intensive theoretical and hands-on lab analysis. 

Visiting the Test & Learn Center is a great way to understand how to add significant financial and operational benefits to your organization, while minimizing any risk associated with changes thanks due to the in-depth testing and data analysis.  



  • Understand the basic theory of air filters and gas turbines.
  • Identify your environmental/site conditions in order to determine the types of contaminants that areaffecting your gas turbine.
  • Describe the principles of engine degradation (erosion, fouling, and corrosion), and how to mitigatethese risks with a well-designed inlet system appropriate for your site conditions.
  • Explain how to design an inlet system according to your site conditions.
