Camfil Power Systems has designed new and advanced calculation tools to help reduce gas turbine carbon dioxide emissions.

The new tool calculates the potential carbon savings that can be achieved by upgrading filtration systems.

Calculations are based on Camfil’s Life Cycle Cost Analysis, which measures the impact of fouling on an engine depending on the efficiency class of its filtration system.

EPA filtration is only one element that improves engine efficiency, as hydrophobic properties along with low, stable pressure drop also help to keep heat rate and carbon intensity low.

Higher rated efficiency hydrophobic filters with low and stable pressure drop protect gas turbines the best against all weather conditions, reducing fouling and corrosion. The engines run more efficiently, which cuts CO2 emissions per megawatt hour produced.

“Thanks to high quality, hydrophobic, EPA efficiency filters, it has never been easier for turbine operators to reduce their carbon footprint while simultaneously improving engine availability, reliability and generating more savings,” said Marc Van den Eynde, Vice-President of Camfil Power Systems.
