Compressor Intake Filter System

Manufacturing equipment at industrial plants is exposed to discharging contaminants on a regular basis which cause damage in the form of corrosion. Aggressive condensation attacking metal surfaces is created by corrosive gases raising the acidity of the compressed air and leading to a substantial decrease in the compressor efficiency. It is crucial to remove gaseous contaminants and particulates from the inlet airstream to be able to guarantee a long service life and minimal repairs of the compressor. The Alfaintek Compressor Intake Filter System provides non-corrosive and purified air for industrial air compressor appliances.

The built-in inlet filtration systems in the axial flow compressors can reduce certain amount of liquids, particulates and some of the corrosive species such as metallic salts from entering the compressor. However, a lot of corrosive species such as NOx and SOx are not filtered by these building inlet filters. Many of these corrosive species are in a gaseous form which are deposited inside the compressor during the process where outside air enters the compressor and is compressed to a higher temperature and pressure.

The Alfaintek Compressor Intake Filter System can effectively eliminate up to 100% of particulates entering the compressor and corrosive species such as chlorides, sulfur, fluorine, NOx, SOx and many others.

Alfaintek is the worldwide leader in industrial filtration. Our products are developed to satisfy the most demanding customer needs and our Compressor Intake Filter System has been designed to remove issues impacting the air compressors such as vibration and efficiency loss.

The Alfaintek Compressor Intake Filter System is suitable for low intake pressure drops and the design is tailored for individual customer needs. Appropriate air filtration is crucial for the performance and reliability of the air compressors and gas turbines.

Our Compressor Intake Filter System helps to enhance performance of the compressor and will result in operational cost savings. The engines will stay much cleaner leading to fewer shutdowns, sustained usability and reduced maintenance costs.
