Air Filtration for the Gas Turbine with Vokes Air
The growth in gas turbines is seeing a phenomenal growth throughout Asia where gas availability permits. From industrial and aeroderivative applications through to large combined cycle baseload and peaking plants, the fuel is taking an increasing share of the regions energy mix, and rightly so. The superior efficiencies, reduced emissions and operational flexibility are desirable factors for end users, but with the enhanced performance capabilities comes far more responsibility in operation and maintenance. A vital consideration comes in the form of the air filter, and despite certain opinion to the contrary, this critical component has significantly more accountability in the gas turbine than protecting the blades against airborne contaminants. This exciting whitepaper from Carlo Coltri of Vokes Air takes a close look at what can be achieved through intelligent and quality air filtration.
