altair System3

altair System3 is an upgrade package designed to provide enhanced performance on altair System2 and altair Aquila filter houses.

Developed to provide extended availability of your key gas turbine assets, the altair System3 comes with higher efficiency filters and the same outstanding salt removal efficiency – all designed to keep your gas turbine online and available at any time.

Building upon the successful altair System2 and altair Aquila, altair System3 adds outstanding sub-micron particulate and droplet removal efficiency—wet or dry—without compromising the pressure loss of the system. This advanced technology solution is ideally suited to offshore environments with high dust-loadings such as areas close to desert landmasses or locations affected by Harmattan wind conditions.

Features / Benefits

  • Internal upgrade of altair System2 and altair Aquila to F8, F9 or E10
  • Filter holding frame can be installed without hot work permits (depends on filter house configuration)
  • Utilizes altair SRS Technology (Salt Removal System)
  • On-line prefilter change
