GE invests in gas turbine filtration

The move from GE will keep pace with the growing demand for natural gas power generation equipment and more than 115 new jobs this year will be added at the facility, which has manufactured filtration technologies since 1975. “The Air Filtration business in Slater is growing. Expanding our workforce and facilities are vital to driving our filtration business to support natural gas power generation in North America,” said Keith White, general manager of GE Power & Water’s Air Filtration business. GE’s line of industrial air filtration products helps achieve air quality and plant performance goals while reducing emissions. In Slater, GE manufactures air filtration media and membranes for industrial products and gas turbine inlet systems. Products include pleated filters that collect dust at industrial sites and gas turbine cartridges that keep particulate from entering and damaging the turbine.
