The GTC10 HemiPleat is an EPA 10 filter with a non-discharging and synthetic media that offers the ideal balance between pressure drop, filtration efficiency, and service life. A water-resistant air filter, it offers excellent engine protection and helps reduce carbon emissions per MWh. It is suitable for most high humid applications.
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.
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.
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.
