Multi-stage filtration systems ensure effective filtration and increased protection of turbines and compressors. Fouling damage is kept to a minimum, unplanned downtimes can be avoided, general maintenance costs are reduced, and optimal turbine efficiency can be achieved.
In a two-stage system, an upstream pocket filter protects the cassette filter of the final stage. In a three-stage system, an additional downstream cassette filter stage is added. This can provide filtration levels by EPA standard. The selection of filters for each stage depends primarily on the environmental conditions around the plant, as well as on any space limitations. This is how we provide customized solutions for you.
Ambient conditions vary by plant. From deserts, urban areas, or coastal districts; Sandstorms, humidity, or salty air. These conditions cause corrosion damage to equipment if not properly suited with the correct filtration system. Standardized filtration solutions sometimes do not take into account all variables, and therefore are not designed to cope with specific requirements.
e.FFECT is the solution. A proprietary software tool that optimizes filter systems and tailors them to specific environmental conditions.
With e.FFECT, the electronic Freudenberg Filter Efficiency Calculation Tool, calculating the optimal filter solution is extremely simple. The local ambient conditions and specific process requirements enter directly into the calculation. Multi-stage filter systems can then be objectively compared. This simplifies the selection of the best filter concept for your needs.
