Four Types of Filtration Solutions

  • V-Bank Mini-Pleat Elements
  • Small Cartridge Filters
  • Panel Elements
  • Filter Housings

V-Bank Mini-Pleat Elements

Our high-efficiency mini-pleat panel filters are designed for various applications including high-velocity, high-V-Bank Filtermoisture and high dust concentration environments. The extended media surface area design maximizes dust-holding capacity with low change of pressure. This results in higher-power output and reduced replacement costs. Multiple efficiency options are available for any gas turbine application.

Small Cartridge FiltersCartridge Filters

We offer three types of elements for cartridge filters and filter/silencers. The pleated paper element provides the highest efficiency, while the pleated felt and wire mesh are suitable for applications that are less demanding. The paper element is oven cured during production, with plastisol end caps and molded sealing beads. The felt element has durable polyester felt media with the same molded sealing beads and plastisol end caps that the paper element possesses. The wire mesh element is treated with an oil-free adhesive and is recommended for “rough” filtration only. These filters can be cleaned and used indefinitely. Larger filter sizes have metal end caps instead of the oven-cured plastisol.

Panel Elements

UniversalAET offers a wide range of air filter panels for use on gas turbines, diesel engines, compressors and blowers. These filters enable effective and efficient filtration at high airflow levels with a minimum amount of pressure drop. Media types include pleated paper, felted synthetic (polyester) and galvanized steel wire mesh. The W-2, DD-2 and P-2 pane filters are lightweight, easy to clean and are ideally used with single or multistage FH, FRH or BFH combination filter silencers.

Filter Housings

GT Filter House

Each gas turbine filtration and acoustic challenge is unique. UniversalAET is one of the only acoustic and filtration solutions providers that can design and manufacture a total inlet system solution for gas turbines. Whether the application is a first-fit filter housing for a global OEM or the refurbishment of an existing inlet system for a municipal utility, we have what you need. Turbine manufacturers such as GE, Siemens-Westinghouse and ABB have trusted our innovative approach to remedy the most difficult noise problems, as have Conectiv, Florida Power & Light and TransContinental Gas.
