spiderMaxx is a new cassette filter for multi-stage gas turbine and compressor air intake systems. It boasts unique design features and offers gas turbine users greater efficiency and operational dependability with premium, EPA-level filter performance.
It deals with almost any environmental requirements or load peak admirably, be it onshore, offshore, or wherever else static intake air filters need to deliver maximum performance over a long service life. Such efficiency is required of power plants supplying energy to light and heavy industry, the petrochemical industry and even megacities. spiderMaxx’s water-repellent filter media and water drainage channels ensure the filter is resistant to high humidity and adverse weather conditions, which in turn makes it suitable for marine applications.
High turbine efficiency and avoiding unplanned downtime are key factors in operating gas-fired power plants. In multi-stage filtration systems, spiderMaxx cassette filters provide optimum protection from particle ingress and moisture even at high volume flows. This prevents performance loss and malfunctions.

Special design details on the spiderMaxx such as the innovative guide vanes and open side walls promote increased utilization of space for air movement on the top and bottom sides. The air flow on the downstream side is specifically distributed to the width and possible dead zones behind the filter wall. This reduces the flow velocity and minimizes vortex formation in the flow-critical area.
Result: spiderMaxx filters achieve much lower pressure drops compared to conventional cassette filters.
Air velocity v1 (spiderMaxx) < air velocity v2 (conventional cassette filter).
spiderMaxx filters make a significant contribution to improving sustainability when used as part of a multi-stage filter system in turbomachinery intake air units. This intelligent design features aerodynamic guide vanes to ensure minimal flow resistance and reduced pressure drop. This leads to less CO2 emissions per megawatt hour and a reduced ecological footprint.
