GE (NYSE: GE) introduced its new GE TS1000 coalescer, a gas turbine filtration product designed to improve plant performance and lower maintenance costs to operate power generation facilities near coastal environments. The announcement was made at POWER-GEN Middle East, which is currently being held in Doha, Qatar.
The TS1000 was able to last 12 months and up to three times longer than some competitor products before requiring cleaning. This is due to allowing sand and dust to pass through, therefore not clogging the coalescer.

Coalescers remove moisture in the air stream, which protects the downstream filters and the turbine. This is essential in environments with high levels of moisture, such as humidity, rain, fog and mist. Coalescers also can help to remove liquid phase corrosives, reducing the likelihood of reaching the turbine and causing damage.
