PROJECT INFORMATION

This is a 177 MW natrural gas-fired cogeneration facility in Morris, Illinois.

THE PROBLEM

The primary air filters became fouled with cottonwood seeds and other airborn debris so severly that they needed to be replaced at least once a year.

THE SOLUTION

To capture airborne organic matter and debris, Galebreaker designed and supplied air pre-filters, fitted specifically to the intake frame structure of the generator. The filters were installed ahead of the primary filters.

THE BENEFITS

As a result the customer does not need to replace the primary air filters each year. The pre-filters can now be cleaned in place as needed.
