Higher Output, Longer Life

In industrial and urban districts, with high levels of PM 2.5 (particulate matter ≤ 2.5 μm), sub-micron particulate impacts on gas turbine blades to form fouling – a thin layer of greasy soot that progressively affects the performance of the axial compressor and reduces the power output of the plant.

By removing more than 80% of the airborne fine particulate, high efficiency gas turbine air intake filters prevent fast fouling of compressor blades, but in many cases, simultaneously create an excess of under pressure on the gas turbine air intake, affecting the performance of the compressor and reducing the electric output. Here, a filter’s pressure drop performance is the key consideration, and by selecting the correct gas turbine filters, high efficiency can be achieved without compromising output.
