Abstract : This technical report presents Belvoir RD&E Center analysis of and proposed solution to problems (severe clogging, fire hazards, high replacement costs, maintenance requirements) caused by paper air filters on the gas turbine Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) on the LACV-30. The proposed LACV-30 replacement filters have three stages of cleaning: an inertial separator, a mist eliminator pad, and a foreign object damage (FOD) screen. The new filter decreases the need for spare parts and extensive maintenance, extends the life and efficiency of the APU, and increases horsepower by 3%. This report contains the contractor's (Pall Corporation) Technical Proposal and Field Performance Study. Keywords: Air cleaner system.
