altair System2

The high performance altair System2 filtration unit is design specifically for offshore and coastal environments. With an excess of 15 million trouble free operating hours on over 1000 turbine inlets, the system has become the filtration unit of choice for operators and OEMs alike.

In offshore and coastal areas, protection against airborne salt ingress is vital to guard against turbine damage. The CLARCOR Industrial Air trusted SRS (Salt Removal System) Technology provides outstanding salt removal performance for both wet and dry salt particulate.

The altair System2 range of filter elements is designed for requirements ranging from low pressure loss applications requiring maximum turbine output, to very high efficiency filtration for environments with high levels of small particulate and applications requiring long intervals between compressor washes. All filter elements are available with an optional pre-filter to extend the life of the main filter in high dust environments.

Features / Benefits

  • SRS Technology (Salt Removal System)
  • On-line prefilter change
