Stay seaworthy and protect precious equipment on board with Camfil’s heavy-duty louvre systems and air intake separators for marine applications. You’ll get high performance, a low TCO and improved operational profitability.

The combination of harsh operating environments, high-performing engines and tougher emissions standards requires high performance from your air intake system. Meet these challenges with our Seaworth range of filters and separators that remove solid and liquid contaminants, at any humidity level and in any weather conditions.

Effects of the marine environment on equipment and filter performance

Sea salt, water droplets, humidity and dirt can wreak havoc on board ships and other vessels in a marine environment – and threaten the operation of gas turbines, engines and the filtration systems that protect this valuable equipment. Filtration systems need to filter corrosive contaminants like supersaturated salt crystals at sub-micron levels while facing strict weight and space restrictions.

The main damage caused by airborne salt is hot-end corrosion of turbine blades. This damage is often irreversible – leading to performance losses, early failures, downtime and expensive repairs.

Seaworth – At the helm of marine filtration and separation solutions

Wherever you find large water volumes, salt or high face velocities, Camfil’s Seaworth range of storm louvre systems as well as two-stage and three-stage air intake separators will help eliminate the ingress of moisture, rain and sea spray into the intake air of machinery, engine rooms and HVAC systems.

These products are all Class A-rated according to EN 13030 and can eliminate 100% of moisture from intake air when operating at specified velocity. Operating effectively at up to twice the velocity of conventional louvres, Seaworth storm louvres remove the maximum possible water loading with minimal pressure drop.

Typical uses for Camfil air intake separation and filtration solutions

Camfil’s marine filtration products provide protection on a variety of vessels, including naval and coast guard vessels, tugs and OSVs, cruise ships, ferries, yachts and trawlers. They are used to protect:

  • Ventilation systems
  • HVAC systems
  • Diesel engine air intakes
  • Gas turbine filter systems

Benefits of Camfil solutions for marine applications
