Energy & Power Systems

Turbomachinery equipment are critical pieces of equipment that ingest large quantities of air. A gas turbine intake, for example, ingests up to 98% air and 2% fuel. Air quality is critical for the performance and life of the equipment and directly impacts an operator’s availability, reliability and profitability. Whether you operate a gas turbine, wind turbine, large industrial air compressor, or other turbomachinery, high quality air filtration will quickly bring important benefits to your bottom line.

Environmental and operational conditions can vary drastically with each site, therefore, the required filter solution should not only be efficient but also adapted to your local site conditions and challenges.
The following Insight articles cover a wide variety of topics that will help you improve your overall operations.

Whitepaper: Gas Turbine Hot Corrosion

Created 28 يوليو, 2021

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.
