Air filtration has a critical role in many power generation applications such as, wind, thermal, nuclear, or biogas. Air filters are critical for the safety and efficiency of the process.
In very competitive and regulated markets, innovative air filtration solutions can be a competitive advantage as it has a large impact on the profitability of operations. Understanding the local site conditions can optimize air inlet systems to meet your operation and maintenance needs, increase service internals, and output.
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.
Wind turbines operate under some of the toughest conditions. Air inlet filters need to be highly efficient and robust to ensure a long service life and to minimise energy consumption.
