The Gas Letdown GeneratorTM is an efficient, power generating system that makes electricity from waste pressure. It is capable of directly utilizing and exploiting the energy in waste pressure from virtually any source without expensive, efficiency-reducing heat exchangers or organic mediums to transfer energy.
Power production efficiencies approximate those produced by turbines (isentropic efficiencies exceeding 60%) without the narrow operating parameters required by those devices (little fluctuations in pressures and flows). The Gas Letdown GeneratorTM is a positive displacement device and is unaffected by variations in pressures and flows.
Capable of directly utilizing the pressure in natural gas, wet steam, dry steam, geothermal fluids and many other waste streams, the Gas Letdown GeneratorTM provides significant economic and performance advantages over traditional and non-traditional waste energy capture devices.
