Cartridge Filters in Gas Turbine Inlet Air Filtration Systems

Cartridge Filter

Canister, cartridge, conical, and cylindrical (round) industrial air filters help clean intake air of inlet air filtration systems for gas turbine power plants. Their media can be depth-loading or surface-loading.

Selecting the proper gas turbine inlet air filtration system and inlet air filters cannot be underestimated, as these systems drive turbine efficiency and output.

The Difference Between Pocket Filters and Bag Filters

Bag Filter & Pocket Filter

The terms bag filter and pocket filter are often used interchangeably – but there is a difference between these two industrial air filters.

Typically, a bag filter has a metal frame (galvanized steel or aluminum) with anywhere from 3-6 pockets of micro glass or synthetic filtration media. The ‘pockets’ of a bag filter are not ‘rigid’ and sometimes have a tendency to collapse in the air stream, especially under high airflow.

Why Cleanrooms can Benefit from High Efficiency V-Bank Filters

High efficiency filter

A ‘clean room’ is a controlled environment generally used in the pharmaceutical industry for scientific research. As the term suggests, a clean room maintains a very high level of air quality, free of pollutants such as dust particles, airborne organisms and chemical vapors.

The ambient air outside in a typical city environment contains around 35,000,000 particles per cubic meter. According to ISO standards, an ISO1 clean room permits no more than 12 particles per meter cube. Many organizations high-efficiency V-Bank filters to create this controlled environment.
