Abstract: A hydroelectric power plant in Snohomish County, Washington was experiencing daily plant stoppages due to clogged bay filters. The 200 micron bags were filtering the water used to cool mechanical seals on the plant’s two system turbines, and they were fouling daily due to the high turbidity (heavy particulate matter) of the Snohomish River, the plant’s water source.
