Abstract:

The report concerns the development of an automatically cleaned filter for 3400 cfm gas turbine application. The design and fabrication of a performance model air cleaner is a continuation of earlier development effort started under contract DA-44-009-ENR-5262 which investigated performance of flatsheet media under reverse airflow cleaning conditions. The performance model consisting of a housing, filter element, cleaning nozzles, and a drive and control system successfully demonstrates the practability of the self-cleaning concept applied to high airflow systems. This report presents the basic design concepts with supporting data for selection of components for the performance model air cleaner. Author
