Freudenberg, Thermax tie-up for turbine cooling solutions

BS Reporter  |  Mumbai/ Pune 

Freudenberg Filtration Technologies in partnership with Thermax is set to deliver patented new system for turbine and compressor filtration as well as cooling to the world market.

A strategic partnership has been formed with Thermax to deliver innovative solutions and to jointly offer filtration and cooling solutions for large gas turbines and compressors for the energy, petrochemical, iron, steel and other sectors.

Thermax and Freudenberg Filtration Technologies have together developed an entirely new system-Viledon eee.Sy (energy efficiency enhancement system) that cools the intake air of a turbine up to the ideal value of 15”c allowing an improvement of up to 25 per cent in energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions.

Other added benefits of the new system are reduced maintenance expenses due to the longevity of filters, reduced stress on turbine blades besides extension of service lives of turbines and compressors. The partnership has since completed several implementations including one at a Tata Chemicals fertilizer plant. The new system/set of solutions would be of high relevance for plants in tropical and subtropical zones where high humidity and temperatures severely impair efficiency of gas turbines and compressors.

Freudenberg Filtration Technologies belonging to the Freudenberg Group--a global supplier of filters, lubricants in seals and vibration control technology said it has invested a total amount of Rs 130 crore in India.
