microturbine operates at very low emissions and has been designed to meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations, such as California's strict emission standards. They also have very few moving parts. This means that a microturbine can operate 24/7 with
little maintenance (typically 8,000 hours or more) before routine maintenance is needed.
By supplying continuous on-site power, microturbines reduce a facility's reliance on the public utility. This electricity can be used for
reducing base load as well as dedicated on-site power generation.
Microturbines can be found in the following locations:
The Jamacha Landfill Gas Utilization Project, San Diego County, California use
Flex Energy microturbines to generate electricity by firing landfill gas (LFG) collected at the site. The methane content of
the LFG is relatively low at a reported 37%. However, this gas is recaptured and used to power four
FlexEnergy microturbines at the plant. They generate not only electricity for the plant but also hot water needed by commercial customers and nerby residential areas.
turbine emit lower emissions with the fraction of maintenance compared
to reciprocating engines.
A 60,000-square-foot community center and skilled nursing facility located in NY state is using an
Flex Energy microturbine to provide much of the facility's domestic hot water (DHW) needs. The
microturbine was installed as a complementary power source to help reduce the center's use of electricity from the public grid. As a result, they are currently saving significant amounts on both electric-utility costs and hot-water energy costs.
Flex Energy microturbine is providing electric power and process
heat for American Refinerys facility in Bradford, PA. The electrical power produced by the generator help to offset the facility's base load, and heat captured from the integrated heat-recovery system preheats the feed water for process boilers. This
highly effective cogeneration application is currently achieving about 70% overall efficiency.
Q How much power is produced by the
Flex Energy microturbine?
Q How much energy is available from the exhaust heat?
Flex Energy exhaust temperature before cogeneration heat recovery is about 400 deg. F. The amount of heat that can be recovered depends upon the application. A typical example would be
1.10 MM BTUs per hour.
Q Who will provide both the pre-sale service and, more importantly the after-sale support?
A As with all the products sold by P. C. McKenzie Company, we will support you from the moment you design a system to start-up and beyond. If we sold it, we will service it. Our reputation for after-market support spans over fifty-five years.
