altair Offshore vCell Filters

The altair vCell filter products for offshore application provide best-in-class turbine protection against corrosives and enhanced protection against moisture with their unique combination of hydrophobic properties and high efficiency protection. Developed to provide extended availability of key gas turbine assets, the vCells’ high dust-holding capacity helps prolong filter life and significantly lowers operating costs. The filters are designed for low pressure loss to enable increased power output and availability.

The altair vCells are made using fully potted pleated panels to provide a complete seal and is mounted within an ABS plastic frame. Protective grids incorporated on the downstream surface deliver robust performance, even in high under-pressure conditions, which can be experienced in gas turbine applications. A specially designed closed cell, single-piece continuous gasket seals the rear contact surface of the filter frame against the holding frame of the filter house. The incorporated gasket stop protects the gasket against over compression during installation. This helps eliminate the possibility of air or water bypassing the filters when in service.
