Gas Turbine

A combined-cycle power plant uses both a gas and a steam turbine together to                       produce up to 50 percent more electricity from the same fuel than a traditional                       simple-cycle plant. The waste heat from the gas turbine is routed to the                                    nearby steam turbine, which generates extra power. 

                  Proper air filtration is critical to the overall performance and reliability                                      of gas turbines. Fuel costs approach 80 percent of the life cycle                                               cost of electricity. Small gains in efficiency can mean huge                                                        savings. The decision criteria required in selecting an optimum                                              air filtration solution, with the goal of maximizing gas turbine                                                   availability and lowering operating costs.


                   Air inlet filtration systems are essential for the operation of gas                                            turbines and other turbomachinery. Gas turbines ingest a large                                             amount of ambient air during operation. Because of this, the quality                                     of the air entering the turbine is a significant factor in the performance                             and life of the gas turbine. 

                                                                                                                               The most notable symptom of efficiency degradation for Gas Turbines or                                                                                                                                                      compressors is fouling. The correct choice of air filtration will save hundreds                                                                                                                                                  of thousands of euros – every operating year, every unit.
