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.
The wastewater undergoes a long process at Middelfart Wastewater, where the wastewater is treated and at the end of the process it eventually becomes purified water which is then released to the sea surrounding Middelfart. In addition, the byproducts biogas is converted to electricity and heat as well as bio-fertilizer that is being used on farmers’ fields.Energie & Power Systems Case Studies Duurzaamheid Luchtkwaliteit
Dyna Mig had a competitor dust collector solution that regularly caused costly downtime. With the help of Camfil’s expertise and a flagship Camfil Gold Series GSX dust collector system, Dyna Mig was able to eliminate all unscheduled downtime and cut their heating costs to a minimum – as well as work safer.Energie & Power Systems Productie & Machinebouw Case Studies
Camfil has provided container manufacturer AMG with a much more effective dust and fume extraction system offering higher filtration rates. A system that is also more sustainable thanks to reduced energy consumption and longer filter lifetime.
Camfil Power Systems (PS) provides filtration and acoustical solutions for turbomachinery including gas turbines, generators,industrial air compressors and diesel engines. Turbomachinery technology has evolved tremendously over the past decades.
ISO 29461-1 is the latest international test standard for reporting the performance of air intake filters for gas turbines, compressors, and other turbomachinery applications.
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.
The CamClose panel air filter is engineered for gas turbine air intake systems to provide hassle free operations, stable performance and increased protection.
CamPure 32 is the new ideal Camfil media for the removal of hydrogen sulfide during the production of biogas in an anaerobic process. Learn how this farm in France applied the high quality chemical absorbent media to their biogas application.
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.
Case Study: North Sea Oil Rig Accommodation Areas. Employees at the North Sea Oil Rig needed cleaner air in common spaces such as television rooms and accommodation spaces. Find out how Camfil and MSV Regalia improved the air with 24/7 usage of a filtration system.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
