Desert Protection - Gas Turbine Inlet Systems
The desert is an extremely challenging environment for gas turbines. To ensure that high levels of particulate from fine sands and desert winds do not damage the turbine, an effective filtration system is essential. The Altair product range offers a variety of solutions to address these issues.
Turbine air inlet filtration systems operating in very dusty environments can be overwhelmed by the high levels of contaminants. This can result in filters operating with high pressure loss, needing constant and high levels of maintenance or, in extreme cases, allowing particulate to pass through the system.
The AltairLibrapulse inlet filtration system is a high efficiency, self-cleaning air filtration unit ideally suited to high dust-load environments. The system's integral self-cleaning function means that the filtration unit can operate in high-dust conditions for long periods of time without the need for filter changes and general maintenance.
Each Altair filter element is tailored to the particular environment required, and achieves a good level of efficiency from installation onwards, without having to rely on the loading of dust for filtration efficiency.
