The marine environment represents a unique challenge for the operation of gas turbines and the air filtration systems that protect them. To ensure turbine protection, a filtration system is required to remove vast quantities of salt spray, dust and occasionally ‘green seas’, while being constrained by severe space and weight limitations.
Parker has specialized in the design and manufacture of advanced air filtration and silencing systems for gas turbines since the late 1960s when systems were first being introduced as propulsion units, principally on warships. When it comes to protecting the engines of crucial naval ships, the top engine suppliers turn to altair® for their filtration system needs.
Not only do altair filtration systems meet the specifications of OEM engine suppliers such as GE and Rolls-Royce, but continuous innovation in salt and water removal has helped earn the trust of key naval decision-makers. Our altair Neptune and altair Vega systems have been installed on major military navies worldwide and continue to be selected for new ship programs.
Versatile and effective, altair's range of panels are designed to operate in the harshest conditions. Panels are generally used as part of a 2- or 3-stage system. They offer good filtration efficiency with low pressure loss, even at high velocity. They also reduce salt ingress to well below engine manufacturers' recommended limits. Unlike other panels, several of altair's panels can be cleaned to remove salt and hydrocarbon contamination in environments where this occurs. Other altair panels can be easily removed and replaced to minimize system downtime.
