Diesel and gas engines need protection against the elements, excessive temperatures and contaminants during the combustion process. The surroundings also need protection from the hot exhaust gases. Robust solutions protect against any surge risk.
Gas turbines are highly efficient, sensitive machines that can be used to generate electricity or as a mechanical drive to power different processes. They are used all over the world in environmental and operational conditions that can vary drastically. That's why the filter solution should be adapted to offer adequate protection.
Turbomachinery and electrical equipment such as generators need protection against the elements and excessive temperatures with appropriate ventilation for cooling. The ventilation unit's level of protection should be customized based on its surrounding environment to protect against water, salt, and other contaminants.
Air compressors are critical for many processing industries that rely on efficient filtration to remain operational for prolonged periods of time, without any shutdowns. Environmental and operational conditions can vary drastically. That's why the required filter solution should be adapted to your local site conditions and operations.

The wastewater undergoes a long process at Middelfart Wastewater, where the wastewater is treated and at the end of the process it eventually becomes purified water which is then released to the sea surrounding Middelfart. In addition, the byproducts biogas is converted to electricity and heat as well as bio-fertilizer that is being used on farmers’ fields.Energy and Power Systems Air quality Sustainability Case Studies
Camfil has provided container manufacturer AMG with a much more effective dust and fume extraction system offering higher filtration rates. A system that is also more sustainable thanks to reduced energy consumption and longer filter lifetime.
Dyna Mig had a competitor dust collector solution that regularly caused costly downtime. With the help of Camfil’s expertise and a flagship Camfil Gold Series GSX dust collector system, Dyna Mig was able to eliminate all unscheduled downtime and cut their heating costs to a minimum – as well as work safer.
ISO 29461-1 is the first international test standard for reporting the efficiency for the entire range of air intake filters for gas turbines, compressors, and other turbomachinery applications.
Hydrogen sulphide is one of the major contaminants that needs to be eliminated from biogas production as part of the purification. This can be achieved using mobile activated carbon filters that remove harmful gases and odours from the process.
The CamClose panel air filter is engineered for gas turbine air intake systems to provide hassle free operations, stable performance and increased protection.
Clean air at a disused nuclear power plant operated by Barsebäck Kraft AB (BKAB) in Sweden. The used nuclear fuels were removed a long time, but demolishing the nuclear power plant is a dirty job that requires maximum safety and control. To keep the air clean in the demolition process, air purifiers from Camfil were used.
Hi-Flo bag air filters and CamGT EPA air filter upgrade reduces compressor efficiency degradation by 80%, slashes 3 offline filter replacements, 7 online pre-filter replacements, and 3 offline water washes per year.
Hot corrosion is a source of nonrecoverable degradation on gas turbines. It is a chemical reaction between salts, sulfur and heat, where the damages can reduce an engine’s life by up to 75%. One of the most effective methods is to eliminate the contaminants triggering the chemical reaction. This paper examines the causes of hot corrosion and assesses various methods of mitigation.
CamPure 32 is the new ideal Camfil media for the removal of hydrogen sulfide during the production of biogas in an anaerobic process. Learn how this farm in France applied the high quality chemical absorbent media to their biogas application.
CamGT 3V-600 static final filters and Cam-Flo GT Hybrid pocket air filters eliminate 6 offline washes per year, improve gas turbine compressor efficiency, and boost power output for a Singaporean coastal cogeneration power plant.
