Each combustion turbine installation has peculiar to it site-related characteristics that, if considered carefully, will define the type of inlet system that best fits the operational requirements. Historically, and unless owner specified, the OEM/Packager supplies his standard, all-purpose air filter configuration as an integral part of the package. The standard may or may not be the best selection for filtering combustion inlet air at the intended specific site location. This technical paper will match inlet air filtration systems to several typical ambient conditions, using laboratory tests and actual site experience. This paper can also be used as a technically current selection guide for those considering various inlet air filtration requirements for new and retrofit systems.
