N-hance® Offshore GT Filter
Maintain gas turbine cleanliness in your existing offshore filter housing, eliminating the need to frequently water wash your engine.
Understanding the air quality challenges offshore that can lower gas turbine performance and how to remedy these challenges to maximise efficiency and profitability.
Salt is prevalent as both a dry particulate and as an aerosol. It is typically found in high concentrations due to the prevailing wind picking up sea spray from the waves.
Mists and fogs can also intensify the amount of free moisture that enters the air filtration system, while dusts and other man-made particles will lower compressor efficiency.
This makes it very difficult to upgrade these systems and has resulted in low efficiency filter bags being the most common filtration solution offshore. These filter bags do not stop free moisture and salt from reaching the gas turbine, resulting in compressor fouling and hot gas corrosion (particularly if sour fuel is used).
Engines need to be washed frequently to attempt to reverse this damage resulting in reduced availability, a shorter engine life and a lower production efficiency. Discover how an upgrade to N-hance Performance Filtration can eliminate these issues.
