Power plant operators need a range of air and liquid filtration equipment to make their operations as safe and efficient as possible while keeping their performance within environmental parameters. Solutions for filtration, separation and purification are essential in power generation systems, whether coal or gas-fired power plants or renewable sources such as hydropower or nuclear fusion.

The power industry requires high-performance, customised filters and extraction systems for inlet and exhaust gas, compressed air, cooling towers and sludge applications. Proper filtration is key to achieving not only environmental performance but also higher power output, increased fuel efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and a prolonged lifespan of turbines, generators, boilers and compressors.

Power plant filtration technology trends

Improving filtration performance while maintaining appropriate air and gas flow rates has been the main challenge for power plant filtration equipment manufacturers and designers.

Research and innovation in the filtration technology field is increasingly focused on creating innovative filtration mediums using high-performance fibres and membrane solutions that offer micro to ultra and nano-filtration capabilities.

While large power plant operators continue to use electrostatic precipitators as their main technology to filter fly ash, fabric filtration is being increasingly adopted as a retrofit solution for existing plants, as it tends to involve less capital investment.
