Power generation is increasingly important as the world seeks to become more sustainable and reliable in its energy sources. Filtration plays a big part in the power generation process. To meet the demanding filtration requirements GESSNER offers a complete line filter media and filter components.
Our filter media is used to remove particulates from air or liquid streams and to coalesce liquids. In the case of power generation, typical applications include condensate polishing, liquid coalescers, gas turbine intake filters and more. GESSNER offers other filter components critical to high preforming filters. This includes sleeves, cages, and pleat supports. These support components are made from materials to meet the demanding temperatures, corrosive resistance, and life span the power generation industry requires.
Filter media and components are essential for proper functioning of power plants and generators. Proper filtering ultimately results in increased reliability, efficiency and cost saving when it comes to producing electricity.
A combination of cellulose based media with meltblown is an ideal choice for protecting your gas turbine from debris and other particles. It is highly durable and resistant to corrosion, making it a better option compared to traditional woven wire mesh filters commonly used in gas turbines. The unique properties of cellulose-based media offer superior filtration efficiency and resistance to extreme temperatures, pressures, and other conditions associated with gas turbines. Additionally, the small size of the fibers ensures that the media can capture smaller particles effectively, which helps improve the overall performance of your turbine.
GESSNER's meltblown-spunbond filter media composites are another option when it comes to protecting your gas turbine from contaminants. Synthetic filter media is made from polyester or polypropylene fibers that provide more efficient filtration. Synthetic filter media also has superior chemical resistance and can withstand higher temperatures than natural fibers such as cotton or wool. As such, synthetic filter media is a great choice if you need a secure barrier against contaminants while still allowing air to pass through the system efficiently.
Our synthetic gas turbine filter media are F9 approved accoring to EN779:2012 and ePM1: 80% according to ISO 16890. Our very good pleatiability results in sharp pleats. Additionally, our media provide a good air permeability to efficiency ratio, offering higher efficiency at low pressure loss. The material can be used as a static medium but also for reverse pulse applications for high dust load environments. Gas Turbine media by GESSNER are OEM approved but also available in the aftermarket.
Protective sleeves help protect the filter media from abraision and help keep pleats in place. Additionally, our Conwed™ protective sleeves can extend the life of the filter by protecting it from dust and other airborne particles. With reliable filtration media, pleat support, and protective sleeves in place, power plants are able to maximize efficiency while also ensuring safety standards are being met.
