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.
Camfil has been providing solutions for nuclear power plants since the early 1960s. Today, we are the global leader in nuclear particulate and gas-phase filtration with experience from more than 90 plants around the world.
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.
With a growing demand for greener practices, and rising operational costs, it has become imperative that gas turbine operators cut their carbon footprints. Upgraded air intake systems are one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to meet these demands, while improving operations at the same time.Energy and Power Systems
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.
amfil Power Systems (PS) provides filtration and acoustical solutions for turbomachinery including gas turbines, generators,industrial air compressors and diesel engines. Turbomachinery technology has evolved tremendously over the past decades.
A cogeneration plant operating 368MW gas turbines in Singapore suffered from availability, reliability, and efficiency issues. To improve the situation, it needed to upgrade its air-inlet filters. Camfil performed on-site and Life Cycle Cost analyses to recommend a solution appropriate for the challenging site conditions.
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.
CamGT filters have been engineered to excel in extreme environments. They virtually eliminate fouling, corrosion and maintenance downtime, all at a lower and more stable pressure drop.
Designed to help identify filters that improve gas turbine efficiency, the Value Rating is the easiest way to select air filter for gas turbines.
Camfil helps customer increase power output with a lower carbon intensity. In an effort to increase the performance of the gas turbines, Camfil Power Systems was asked to optimize the existing filtration system for three paper factories.
Activated carbon (also known as activated charcoal) is an exceptionally versatile material that can control the vast majority of molecules that pollute the air – that’s more than 150 million catalogued chemicals.
Hinkley Point C in Somerset, United Kingdom is amongst the safest and most efficient nuclear power generator that is type of a Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR). With hundreds of megawatts electrical production in planning, safety of the process becomes a key concern.
The biogas process is critical as it releases heavily contaminated gasses that can cause engine corrosion and equipment abrasion, causing unscheduled downtime for maintenance and repair, which results in loss of output and profit. Luckily, there are several ways of solving molecular filtration in biogas plants with different types of filter media in deep beds.
Case Study: The BioGas produced is heavily laden with H2S (hydrogen sulphide), a gas that can cause corrosion and pitting inside the gas engine. A solution was required where a high level of abatement of H2S was possible and an easy filter media maintenance.
Case Study: The units are exposed to harsh environmental conditions that lead to spikes in pressure drop (dP) and excessive engine degradation from fouling and corrosion. As a result, the customer was forced to schedule unwanted shutdowns for maintenance.
Turbomachinery: Air inlet filtration systems should be designed to suit the environment. Because of market pressures, a general design has been used in widely varying environment conditions. Before making your purchase, get an assessment.
Gas Turbine Application: Do you operate in a coastal or offshore site? Unfortunately, you probably have to deal with corrosion related issues. You can, however, operate corrosion-free if you take the right measures.
Case Study: Auburndale Power Plant Weathers The Elements. The plant was experiencing high pressure drop and short filter life. In reviewing the situation it was determined that the hot and humid climate of Florida was degrading the performance of the filter. What was the solution?
Case Study: Camfil Wins Dalkia Over Four Competitors. Dalkia designed 12 testing benches to compare four air filtration combinations on three sites in France with different operating environments. Four competitors were free to select their best combinations.
Case Study: Huadian Beats The Heat With Camfil. An upgrade to the CamPulse GTC filters maximised availability during the critical heating season for a Huadian plant, located in the Tianjin development zone in China. The original system could not perform during peak season.
Case Study: Retrofit Solutions For Tata Power Ltd. Based on the site survey, Camfil proposed replacement of the pulse filter system with a three-stage static/barrier filter system, considering the local environment filled with refineries and a thermal power plant nearby.
