Gas Turbine Overview Brochure
AAF has been providing high quality gas turbine filtration systems, auxiliary equipment, acoustic and damper solutions, and replacement air filters to OEMs and Operators for over 50 years. During that time, we’ve executed thousands of projects around the world, including in some of the most challenging industries and demanding environments.
We strive to ensure your assets utilise the best available technology to maximise efficiency, availability, and reliability. We offer the same level of support for large industrial air compressors, which are used across various applications including air separation.
A gas turbine or large compressor air intake filtration system forms a vital part of any given plant. The volume of intake air, the surrounding environment, and the operating conditions all play a major role in the design and filter element selection process. See related products for further details.
Inlet heating systems for cold climates are designed to protect gas turbines from damage due to icing and to keep the machine running with minimum effect on performance. Icing can block inlet filtration equipment, increasing pressure drop, and potentially cause the gas turbine to shut down.
Gas turbine output is affected by the temperature of the air entering the compressor. Gas turbines are rated at a temperature of 15 °C (59 °F). If the temperature increases above this point there is a loss of power, but this can be restored with AAF’s cooling solutions.
AAF Optimize is an industry-leading support service that provides gas turbine users with the capability to improve plant efficiency, availability, and reliability. Optimize assesses your site’s operational, commercial, and environmental data to firstly understand the current impacts and losses associated with your air inlet filtration system.
A gas turbine ventilation system feeds into the gas turbine enclosure and is designed to remove the hot air generated when the turbine is operating with ambient air from outside. Incoming air can be cooled or heated depending on the seasonal conditions and filtered to remove air contamination.
At AAF, we will support you throughout the life cycle of your Stejasa Damper and can advise which critical components and spare parts to keep in stock. Maintaining an agreed service regime is essential to ensure performance is optimised.
AAF has a wide range of gas turbine filters, from coalescing pads, pre-filters, pocket filters, cartridge filters, ASC filters, barrier and V-bank filters, and specialist filters for high velocity applications. Our filter product line is expansive and designed for specific environmental conditions to provide operators with an optimum solution.
Gas turbine air intake filtration plays a vital role in any plant. Starting with understanding your current performance, as well as ambitions for improvement, AAF’s Site Services Team takes ownership of your air quality, serving to protect gas turbines and maximise availability. Our dedicated team is always there when you need us
At AAF, we serve a wide range of industries within the energy sector and have an in-depth understanding of the unique challenges of each application and the products and support you need to succeed.
Gas turbine power generation is heavily influenced by air filtration and challenges will vary considerably depending on if the installation is base load, peak load, or emergency power. Operating conditions are evaluated in combination with the surrounding air quality to ensure we determine the right solution for your power demands.Find out more
The environmental conditions offshore are extremely harsh due to the high levels of salt and moisture in the air. AAF has been leading in this field for many years supplying solutions that put a stop to offline water washing, a stop to turbine damage, and a stop to unplanned production downtime.Find out more
Onshore oil and gas industries include LNG production, oil refineries, gas processing, and gas transmission. Each application has a need for optimized air filtration to improve the performance of gas turbines and/or large industrial compressors. In these application availability and reliability are critical to success.Find out more
