Camfil Power Systems has announced the development of the CamGT 3V-600 inlet air filter.
Camfil Power Systems is one of the world’s leading actors in developing, manufacturing and supplying clean air and noise-reducing systems for gas turbines and turbo compressors. The company has more than 50 years of experience in the business and thousands of installations are being used worldwide, 24-7.
Clean air and noise-reducing systems
Turbo machinery needs the right conditions to perform at its best. To get a safe and cost-effective operation, reliability and efficiency is of the utmost importance. Reliability means that the inlet filtration system must be able to protect the turbine from penetration of particles that could be damaging to the turbine.
Efficiency means that the inlet system must remove the entrance of small particles to avoid fouling, resulting in degradation of the gas turbine performance. In other words, a well-designed system leads to lower operating costs, optimum efficiency and less environmental impact. The mission is to protect machinery in every conceivable environment, from desert or offshore to rural and industrial.
Camfil Power Systems offers static, offshore and pulse filter systems. Static filter systems are for cleaning combustion and ventilation air in rural, urban and industrial areas. Offshore filter systems are designed to clean process and ventilation air on stationary and platform installations. Finally the pulse filter system is made to protect rotating machinery operating in high dust load environments. Of course, there is also room for combining different systems, if necessary. Scope of supply includes:
Camfil Power Systems
- Intake systems, ducts, silencers and filter houses
- Sound enclosures including ventilation air and exhaust installations
- Exhaust systems with diffusers, diverter dampers, bypass stacks and exhaust gas silencers
- Dampers and slides
- Service and repair
- Filters and replacement parts
Power and oil and gas sector projects
The customers they work with are mainly found in the power generating industry and oil and gas sector. The activities are ISO-9001 controlled and follow well-implemented project processes. Each project is managed by a project team in close collaboration with the customer to ensure requirements are met all the way.
Camil Power Systems is honored and proud to supply to some of the world’s biggest companies, including Siemens, Solar, GE, Dresser Rand and Rolls-Royce.
The aftermarket with filter upgrades and retrofits is also vital, with representatives at every Camfil office, access to the complete range of high-tech filters the group offers, and high product knowledge to ensure the best solutions.
Leading air filters and clear air technology
Camfil Power Systems is part of the Camfil Group, one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of air filters and all types of clean air solutions.
The activities in the Power Systems group are coordinated between offices in Europe, the US, the Middle East and Asia / Oceania with sales, project management and engineering in close collaboration. All fabrication takes place at its facility in Sweden or is carried out by carefully selected subcontractors in a global network.
All together the Camfil Power Systems Group has almost 250 employees all over the world, which gives both customers and employees access to a rich and vast knowledge bank for inspiration.
The new European standard for air filters (EN779:2012) comes into force in the summer of 2012. Its purpose is to classify air filters based on their minimum filtration efficiency (ME) on 0.4μm particles.
