The GTC HemiPleat has an excellent self cleaning filter design that makes it a good pulse filter for gas turbines. Its non-discharging and synthetic media offers the ideal balance between pressure drop, filtration efficiency, and service life. The GTC air filtration cartridges are suitable for high humidity applications, such as coastal/tropical.
The Watson Cogeneration Plant operates 4 GE, Frame 7EA engines and produces 400 MW for local refineries and sells excess electricity to the grid. The Plant Manager requested air intake efficiency, pressure drop, and water tests from Camfil. The test results revealed the true impact of the synthetic cartridge filters on gas turbine performance.Energy and Power Systems Case Studies
A side by side comparison shows the benefits of higher grade GTC F9 gas turbine air intake filters for two RB211 gas turbines, even in very clean rural areas. It means a cleaner engine, higher power output, fewer water washes, and fuel savings.Energy and Power Systems Case Studies
Low pressure drop GTC air filters minimize filter replacement requirements, improve power output, and lower fuel consumption.
Synthetic CamPulse GTC F9 cartridge air intake filters keeps twenty 30MW engines clean and running despite the humid and dusty desert environmental conditions.
The test showed that that the CamPulse GTC gas turbine cartrdige filter upgrade would improve pressure drop and increase power output despite the salt laden, high humidity environmental conditions.
Huadian, a power generation company located in China, upgraded the air inlet filtration system to the GTC synthetic cartridge filters on GT PG9171E engines and improved pressure drop and availability despite the high humidity levels.
After three years of operation the CamPulse GTC F9 cartridge gas turbine air filters helped improve power output, decrease filter replacement frequency, and save over $400 000 as a result of lower pressure drop.
