Gas Turbine Filtration


Filtration method: Straining

This method of filtration relates directly to the ratio of particle size to open area; if the particles intended open pathway is smaller than the particle it will be blocked. This is the least complicated and most common method of filtration, it’s apparent in all filter types but depending on media pore size it’s typically the larger particles which are affected by this method most.

Over time as contaminant blocks each pore or parts of a pore, the contaminant begins to act as a filtration method helping to build up a contamainant layer known as a ‘cake’.
