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.

When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.
We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
