‘Anti-icing with infrared heat increases the uptime of gas power plant’ - .PDF file.

Following two relatively hard winters, Trianel — a co-operative of 47 public utilities — had to consider enhancing its existing anti-icing systems. Any solution had to be easy to retrofit and very responsive. The plant in Hamm uses the waste heat from electricity generation for filter de-icing. This hot air is blown onto the pocket filters, made of fleecy material. However, there can be local cold and hot zones, especially when the hot air is not distributed sufficiently. In contrast, infrared radiation, supplied by Heraeus Noblelight, is offering significant benefits. Energy is distributed without contact and generates heat within the material itself. In addition, infrared heat is rapidly available and heating is more energy efficient than many conventional methods.
