Energy & Power Systems

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.
