The Value of Filtration
From moisture removal and pre-filtration to cartridge and panel pak filters in high dust load environments, regardless of your filtration requirement if it is for a gas turbine AAF can help. All of our products add value and we focus on product innovation. This is very evident in the (H)EPA filtration market where the added value helps gas turbines realise greater power, increase efficiency and extend time between water washes. Right now, AAF (H)EPA filters are hard at work supplying clean air at stable differential pressure, extending engine life and increasing reliability to gas turbines around the world.
INCREASE MACHINE AVAILABILITY
The advanced filtration of AAF (H)EPA filters help engine cores remain in close to new condition during operation. As a result, cycles between on or offline cleaning can exceed 8,000 hours. More time online means greater productivity.
RECOVER LOST POWER
With an initial filtration efficiency of 99.5% or greater at the smallest penetrating particle size, AAF (H)EPA filters help maintain gas compressor cleanliness by recovering 6% of the power output normally lost to engine fouling in none power loss megawatt hours (Mw/hrs).
ENHANCE FUEL EFFICIENCY
Today’s modern gas turbines have incredibly tight tolerances and critical profiles for maximum efficiency. AAF’s advanced filtration removes airborne pollution that can foul the engine compressor stator and rotor blades, helping gas turbines run with like-new efficiency even after extensive operation.
EXTEND ENGINE LIFE
With AAF (H)EPA technology, operators can enjoy substantially longer component life and engine reliability. The outstanding protection against salt, hydrocarbons, water and other airborne particles ensures complete peace of mind.
