Gas turbines need air for combustion, which must be free of dust and other particles. Therefore it always need to be pre-filtered.
Moist cold intake air in the winter months can easily lead to icing of the filter. The filters then allow only minimal airflow and the gas turbine must be throttled or shut down completely - just when it is needed the most.
Infrared systems from Heraeus Noblelight successfully prevent the filters from icing up in gas power plants and gas compression stations during the cold season.

Infrared heat technology for industrial processes
Industrial heat processes need to provide energy at the push of a button, at precisely the right time and to the correct place.
Intelligent infrared systems can do this. See how it works!
How does infrared heat technology work?
Infrared heat technology works by transmitting electromagnetic waves which generate heat within the product.
Infrared radiation adjusted to product and process
Part of the electromagnetic radiation is absorbed in the material, another portion is reflected and the rest penetrates the materials. Only the absorbed portion contributes to heating. Each material has its own absorption spectrum, the range in which the electromagnetic radiation is best absorbed.
When the emission spectrum of an infrared emitter is optimally adjusted to a material's absorption spectrum, the material is heated much faster and much more efficiently.

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
