Title: Gas Turbine Inlet Filter Decisions Are Critical and Complex

Gas turbine technology is steadily advancing. Higher speed rotating parts are increasing efficiency. However, the more advanced the machine the more vulnerable it is to deposition of very small particles. The use of turbines has expanded to arctic, desert and marine environments. Each presents special challenges. Inlet air filters are the critical component in deposition prevention. Air filter designers have made a number of improvements in fiber, media and filter shape to improve the efficiency to energy consumption ratio while maintaining integrity. These filter options combined with a variety of other processes and operating parameters make the filter decisions complex. The selection is best made by traveling back and forth among a number of decision trees.
