Gas Turbines

Gas Turbines

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.

Power Generation

In the power generation industry, site-specific air filtration will ensure maximum efficiency for base load plants, and worry-free ownership for peaker plants. As renewable energy increases, the market competitiveness for generators and gas turbines needs to be more efficient to maintain profitability. Camfil smart air filtration solutions are designed to provide the highest profitability.

With narrow spark spread and increased competitiveness, base-load plants can improve margins by protecting their gas turbine with adapted EPA filtration. As every gain in efficiency means longer run time and higher profitability, our filtration solutions are designed to maintain the engine in pristine condition and increase fuel efficiency. As base load plants are critical to the grid, our reliable and long-life EPA filtration solutions enable you to increase availability and reliability.

Peakers have to go online quickly, often without notice. Our high-performance, robust filter solutions ensure that you can ramp up anytime. When availability on-demand is vital, reliable solutions allow you to operate at the highest fuel efficiency with the lowest emissions, enabling long-term prosperity.

Oil & Gas

In O&G applications, whether on offshore production platforms, fracking sites or refineries, turbines often face the challenge of a variety of aggressive contaminants like salt, heavy hydrocarbons or aggressive gases. In critical processes, these challenges need to be taken seriously. Backed by more than 50 years of experience, our solutions are flexible and optimised for each application, from compact EPA solutions offshore, to mobile units on fracking sites, to molecular solutions when subjected to corrosive gas. If you have specific requirements, there's a good chance we have the industry experience to help you.

R&D & Innovation

With test rigs that mimic extreme conditions, from salt & water spray to high air flows and high burst pressure, our R&D group is focused on ensuring reliability. We challenge our products in real site conditions using our mobile testing trailers, the CamLabs, and are always ready to show you actual performance data.   Our patented solutions like the CamGT 3V-600 have pushed the industry limits when it comes to water handling capability, salt removal efficiency and lower operating pressure drop. When reliability is critical, your air filters should be just as dependable.

 

We strive to understand air and local conditions better than anyone else. A little obsessive? Maybe. But, when up to 98% of what goes into your equipment is air, we believe it’s a good thing. By providing the facts you need to empower your decisions, you can optimise output and efficiency. As the most predictable air solutions provider, Camfil keeps your equipment working better and longer, while removing the element of surprise. We help you stay in control.

 

If you are designing a new system or simply looking to improve your current performance, ask us about our life cycle cost software, our air sampling solutions or for a CamLab test.
