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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
