Avoid costly maintenance and downtime

Parker's clearcurrent® filters and systems are an ideal fit for protection against challenging environments including coastal, desert and dusty regions, high or low humidity, and areas with high or low levels of particulate.

Filtration for Energy & Electric Utilties

Gas Turbine Filtration for the Energy & Electric Utility Industry BrochureOften located in industrial areas near other combustion sources, power plants frequently operate in an atmosphere containing high levels of small particulate. Even rural locations can be subjected to large amounts of particulate, usually related to seasonal agricultural processes. These contaminants significantly reduce turbine performance and result in frequent maintenance and costly downtime.

To ensure your turbines continue to run at optimum efficiency, Parker provides clearcurrent® gas turbine inlet systems developed for specific environmental conditions including coastal, desert and dusty regions, high or low humidity and areas with high or low levels of particulate. In addition to filter housings, we supply turbine inlet cooling, ventilation systems, acoustic packages and air quality services. Inlet cooling can provide additional power where needed, implemented either as a new unit or as a retrofit. Learn more about Parker filtation solutions for power generation.

clearcurrent® Filters

Parker's clearcurrent® filters offer superior support to the Energy & Electric Utilities market. This comprehensive group of product solutions focuses on the needs of power generation suppliers to help achieve increased power output, lower heat rate, predictable and lower pressure loss and reduced fouling. Driven by market leading research and development, clearcurrent filters help deter gas turbine degradation leading to more MW being delivered on the gas turbines they protect.

Failure to address contaminants can lead to reduced performance, expensive repairs, and can cause a catastrophic failure of the turbine components. Parker's clearcurrent filters offer extremely high levels of turbine protection in a wide range of environments.
clearcurrent PRO Cartridge Filters
Our clearcurrent® industrial cartridge filters are designed to meet stringent OEM qualifications including testing for efficiency, environmental conditions, strength, life and durability. This gives us confidence that our cartridges will provide the best protection for your gas turbine.

Gas turbine inlet air quality is critical to overall system performance. The clearcurrent line of coalescer filters deliver outstanding coalescing performance with low pressure drop, low maintenance, and long service life.
clearcurrent Coalescers
clearcurrent GC Coalescer
Our clearcurrent line of pre-filters provides a way to extend the life and performance of high-efficiency final filters. Designed as the first line of defense in an inlet system, these pre-filters come in a range of standard sizes and efficiencies.

clearcurrent® Systems

Parker's clearcurrent® systems support the power generation industry by providing consistent performance to gain the best output from the plant. All clearcurrent systems include an aerodynamic design ensuring clean and uniform airflow enters the gas turbine. Our range of systems (with OEM approved designs) include traditional pulse and static designs as well as hybrid units that offer multiple levels of protection. We also offer evaporative coolers to upgrade MW output in hot environments.

Adding a clearcurrent Cool system to your intake can even out the annual peaks of your gas turbine, delivering higher MW output for the same fuel input. By passing air through saturated media, the system creates dense air which gas turbines find easier to compress.

The clearcurrent Hybrid offers a complete cleaning system to protect your gas turbine. It has multiple stages including weather protection, pulse filtration, final static filtration, and transition and uses our PRO technology for predictable, reliable output.

The clearcurrent Pulse system uses compressed air to clean the filters during operation, allowing continued use of the gas turbine even through the most challenging environmental conditions. Parker provides many options to specifically tailor the system for your site.

Ideal for coastal and moderate inland environments, the clearcurrent Static system provides consistent protection and output from your gas turbine. The system generally includes weather protection, pre-filtration, final filtration and transition.

Designed to work with self-cleaning systems, clearcurrent SmartParts delivers a blast of compressed air through blowpipes installed in the inlet house. This blast pulses dust off the installed cartridge filters and restores differential pressure to regular operating levels.
