The second article in the “Tech Series” talks about our flagship Energy Conservation Turbine ECT-TM. It helps to prevent approximately 700,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
Today, we have fully indigenous design for saturated and superheated steam applications ranging from a 20 kW to 5500 kW in various modes of Straight Back Pressure, Straight Condensing, Extraction / Bleed cum Back Pressure, as well as Extraction / Bleed cum Condensing.
Our ECT™ is aimed at conserving the unutilized pressure energy in a process plant PRV/PRDS that is otherwise simply throttled to generate incidental clean and green power with extremely flexible system architecture.
When it comes to the incidental power, the flow rates are lited to ~1 – 8 TPH, which is extremely small by conventional turbine standards. Understanding the criticality and viability, TurboTech effectively developed small turbines running at very high speeds ranging upto 12000 rpm.
High speeds lead to higher efficiency, compact in size, low footprint and less weight to power ratio. However, it throws greater challenges in terms of material technology, rotor-dynamics, structural strength, bearing selection and seal life. We have the capability and expertise to play in this arena to utilize effectively, advanced aerodynamic design, custom designed & optimized for each customer, high grade aerospace material, technologies such as Brown Boveri thrust collar, Blisks technique for higher reliability and many other innovative advanced techniques in the design.
Along with other benefits, our Integral gearbox ensures simplicity whereas, compact unitary skid allows fully factory-built units to be shipped and installed in a “plug-and-play” mode. The “cherry on the cake” is in its simplicity to operate, user-friendly PLC-based digital controls, which is made analogous to starting a car.
One of the predominant accolades that we hear often is, “TurboTech is like a university of Turbomachinery in itself”, this humbles us and motivates us to strive for better innovation-led technology in the field.
