Optimization of Intake Air Cleaner

A particulate air filter is a device composed of fibrous materials which removes solid particulates such as dust, pollen, mold and bacteria from the air. Air filters are used in applications where air quality is important, notably in building ventilation systems and in engines. The air intakes of internal combustion engines and compressors tend to use either paper, foam or cotton filters. Oil bath filters have fallen out of favor. The technology of air intake filters of gas turbines has improved significantly in recent years, due to improvements in the aerodynamics and fluid-dynamics of the air-compressor part of the Gas Turbines. Purity and amount of air with the pressure is primary importance in air filter and at the same time stiffness of air cleaner is also much important in automobile industry. In order to achieve the specified targets we need to perform both CFD and NVH analysis.
