Hi-Flo bag air filters and CamGT EPA air filter upgrade reduces compressor efficiency degradation by over 80%, slashes 3 offline filter replacements, 7 online prefilter replacements, and 3 offline water washes per year.Case Studies Energy and Power Systems
CamGT 3V-600 static final filters and Cam-Flo GT Hybrid pocket air filters eliminate 6 offline washes per year, improve gas turbine compressor efficiency, and boost power output for a Singaporean coastal cogeneration power plant.Case Studies Energy and Power Systems
Located offshore Ivory Coast, Africa, the CamGT EPA filter solution saves Foxtrot International 3 shutdowns per year and eliminates salt corrrosion, without compromising on footprint.
Camfil provides the CamGT EPA air filter solution that helps reduce gas turbine compressor efficiency degradation and improves pressure drop by 40%. Three years after installation, the customer reported no filter change-outs, only 1 water wash in 3 years, and a low and stable pressure drop.
Designed to help identify filters that improve gas turbine efficiency, The Value Rating system is the easiest way to select air filter for gas turbines.
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.
An energy plant on the pacific coast upgrades their Siemens 501F gas turbine filtration to the CamGT 4V-300 air intake filters after tests show its water and salt handling capabilities.
Egat North, the largest energy producer in Thailand, upgraded to Hi-Flo and CamClose air intake pre-filters as well as CamGT final EPA air filters and lowered degradation by 70%, reduced water wash requirements, and saved approximately $1.24M USD per year.
Air sampling, CamLab on-site analysis, as well as a Life Cycle Cost analysis show that the CamGT EPA filters will result in no shutdowns for turbine water washes, final filter shutdown extended to 5 years, decreased risk of corrosion and maximum power output.
Frequent pressure and short filter replacement intervals led to high operational costs. Camfil's Cam-Flo air intake pre-filters and CamGT EPA air filters met their goal of 8000 hours of life and reduced pressure drop by 50%.
Plant located in the Gulf Coast of Louisiana upgrades to the Cam-Flo pocket air filters and CamGT 4V-300 EPA E10 filters after tests show lower pressure drop, lower engine degradation, and signifcant savings as a result of filtration.
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.

Air filters in data centres offer a host of solid business benefits in a whole range of different applications, but one of their most impressive uses is in data centres. They raise energy efficiency and lower energy bills along with providing healthy work environment.
Camfil designs a static EPA retrofit gas turbine filtration solution for LM6000 turbines to ensure they deliver reliable power & heating to the district. The result of the upgrade was 3x more filter life, reduction in CO2 emissions by 1 100 tons per year, and fuel consumption savings of 650 000 Sm3 per year.
Noise complaints from neighboring communities in Thailand prompted the plants to evaluate a noise-reducing filtration system. The CamGT high efficiency air filter solution not only improved the noise levels, it also increased turbine availability, improved pressure drop and helped the gas turbine produce more power.
Tata Power Ltd, India's largest integrated power company requests Camfil for a Cam-Flo pocket bag filter and CamGT static air filter retrofit after heavy hot corrosion in the gas turbine and high pressure drop jeopardized performance and safety.
Dalkia, a leader in the French gas turbine market, launched a national comparative test for various air intake filters, including Camfil's Hi-Flo pre-filters and CamGT EPA filters, to increase power production for their 10 GE LM6000 gas turbines.
