This paper discusses the results of two years continuous operation of automatic self-cleaning air filtration systems designed to provide gas turbine protection in a desert environment subject to high ambient concentrations of sand, dust and salt. The condition of the gas turbines and associated pulse-jet air filtration systems, after two years continuous operation, are described. Filter operating costs are also analyzed.
