On-Site Gas Turbine Filterhouse Audit
David Brumbaugh • More info here

COMPLETE INSPECTION OF GAS TURBINE FILTER HOUSE TO INCLUDE:

  1. Inspection of Filter Media, Filtration System, Instrumentation (Differential Gauges and Switches), Clean/Dirty Air Plenum, Drains, Retaining Hardware, Site Storage Conditions, Access Doors, Fog Cooling and Evaporative Cooling Systems (if applicable)
  2. Evaluate Current practices and identify areas of improvement that will increase the quality and cleanliness towards improving Gas Turbine Performance and Reducing Maintenance Related Costs
  3. Prepare a report to assist the Maintenance Reliability Team with their mission of identifying, developing, implementing Best Filtration/Cooling practices that ensures reliable Gas Turbine Filter House Equipment/Filtration/Cooling Operations
  4. Create a structure and plan for future audits
  5. Identify Remaining Useful Life (RUL) test for GT Filtration and Evaporative Cooling Media
  6. Target Gas Turbine Filtration, Filter Media & Elements, Filtration System, Selection Criteria based on Operating Environment & Atmospheric Conditions, Fog Cooling and/or Anti-icing Evaporative Cooling System, Ingression Conditions in Weather Hoods, Plenum Floor, & Drain Areas
  7. Using Standard S.W.O.T. Analysis (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats) to improve Gas Turbine performance and maintenance reliability

NOTE:  Electrical Repairs to Piping, Pump & Motors for Filter House & Fogging/Evaporative Cooling Systems are not included as part of audit
