Gas Turbine Optimization

Air inlet filtration systems play a fundamental role in overall gas turbine optimization, incorrectly specified or poorly maintained systems can lead to sub-optimal engine performance. AAF Optimize is an industry-leading support service that provides gas turbine users the capability to improve plant efficiency, availability, and reliability.

Engine Surveys

The assessment

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. Alternative solutions are then identified and assessed using a good, better, best selection methodology and the key benefits are highlighted for further discussion.

Increase availability & capacity

To maintain the optimal performance of your gas turbine, air inlet filtration systems need to be tailored to your site-specific environmental challenges. Advanced air filtration will significantly reduce compressor fouling and in doing so will increase gas turbine availability and efficiency. This will allow operators to maximize performance, plant revenues and increase overall profitability.
