Quality systems for gas turbines

Braden’s filtration products enclosed in filter houses as turn-key end products provide quality engineered systems for new or existing gas turbines. The company designs filter houses and filtration systems for applications based on site specific requirement and OEM specifications. It has produced cost effective systems including static filtration (pre-filters to high efficiency final filters), pulse filtration (self-cleaning), and variety of auxiliary equipment (heating/cooling systems) that clean and condition the air at low pressure drop for optimum power output while protecting the compressor from damages.

Braden also has experience in design and manufacture of diverters for combined-cycle gas turbine power plants, where extreme and sudden thermal changes necessitate thorough design foresight, and for desulfurization (FGD) applications for improved flow distribution.
