Clean air means more output

Operators of gas turbines are under pressure due to recent changes in the world markets for energy. The crude oil trading price has fallen below 40$ per barrel over the last few years and producers of electricity are facing the challenges of a global low carbon transition. The future landscape for gas turbine powered applications is difficult to predict because there are so many factors that can influence it; policies, legislations, economics, and market demand.

Meanwhile, gas fired power will remain one of the most important sources of energy and efficiency improvement will play the largest role in reducing energy emissions. Supply of clean air may have a major impact on turbine efficiency and the life cycle cost of a gas fired power plant or other processes where gas turbines play a critical role.

There are many benefits of using an efficient air intake system. A better filtration system reduces fouling and keeps fuel consuption at a minimum. By reducing the frequency of waterwashing, it provides a reliable operation with no unnecessary and costly downtime.

With a well designed filter system, this can be attained even in harsh environments with high dust load and fluctuating humidity levels.

Filters with a large surface provide high dust loading capacity for a longer life, and a well design filter construction results in a low average pressure drop while protecting your turbine against erosion, fouling and corrosion.

Optimizing the efficiency, dust holding capacity and pressure drop will give you the best possible operating economy.

Turbine operators are requesting more and more that filter systems should be optimized, not only in terms of price but also with regards to the total cost for the intake system, including filter usage, compressor cleaning, CO2-emissions and energy costs.
