Next Generation Heat Recovery Solution
Using an organic Rankine cycle (ORC) along with proprietary technologies, the Power+ Generator converts sources of geothermal heat and waste heat into electricity – with no additional emissions or fuel consumption.
ElectraTherm’s heat recovery systems utilize low temperature heat sources previously deemed insufficient for power generation to do just that – generate power. With units available in multiple sizes with a larger (300 kW) unit in development, ElectraTherm’s systems are ideal for small- and mid-scale applications.
The Power+ Generator effectively utilizes available thermal energy (excess heat) to produce clean electricity. In addition to this, the heat recovery system can (1) serve as a combined heat and power (CHP) system, (2) act as a radiator alternative with the ability to substantially reduce or eliminate the cooling load, and (3) provide a profitable means of reducing natural gas flaring.
Higher temperature heat sources – such as thermal oils and exhaust gases – can be utilized with the deployment of an additional heat exchanger.

THE SMART POWER DIFFERENCE
The integration of a semi-hermetic, twin-screw expander gives ElectraTherm’s ORC systems an advantage over competitive technologies and opens market opportunities where waste heat recovery has previously been either impossible or unpractical.
The custom built expander, along with proprietary technologies and lower operating speeds, provides a more cost-efficient, robust design that greatly enhances reliability and functionality. ElectraTherm’s ORC process utilizes much more variable heat sources made possible by the expanders’ ability to handle “wet” dual-phase flow, leading to greater turndown ratios which allow for continuous power generation when dealing with inconsistent thermal conditions.
Good For The Environment
WHAT ONLY 5 POWER+ GENERATORS COULD DO FOR YOU…
By upcycling waste heat into usable power you generate 4.8 GW of clean electricity and offset the equivalent of 3,400 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually.
Your annual pollution offset is equal to taking 740 cars off the road, or reducing gasoline consumption by 385,000 gallons.
Your pollution offset is equivalent to the carbon sequestered by a 4,200 acre forest, or 160,000 mature trees.
The clean power generated is equivalent to the emission offset of 620 homes’ electricity use annually, or 140,000 cylinders of propane used for backyard barbeques.
Good For Business
Simple. Reliable. Profitable. Sustainable.
The simple and flexible nature of our ORC solutions allows them to be adjusted to fit the needs of any application. A robust, modular, and scalable design allows the system to be easily integrated into existing processes while allowing for future adjustments. Able to successfully operate at partial loads with varying conditions also means that the system will produce electricity even when your processes are not at capacity.
Every ElectraTherm product goes through a rigorous testing process at our world-class R&D test cell to ensure absolute reliability. Our technicians and dedicated global partners offer full support for any issues you may encounter throughout the product lifecycle.
Our systems use existing heat as fuel, keeping operating costs minimal. ElectraTherm converts this heat into clean electricity, ready immediately. This increases energy efficiency – up to 10% – while substantially reducing energy consumption, primarily the cooling load. ElectraTherm’s ORC solutions may also qualify for local sustainability incentives as well as enabling micro-grid functionality in remote regions. With an impressive 20-year design life and a payback period of 3-5 years, the economics amount to an attractive return on investment.
Over 50% of energy used in power generation and industrial processes is lost as heat – making this heat an enormous source of renewable energy. Increasing energy efficiency by upcycling this waste heat into emission-free electricity is the single easiest way to mitigate emissions and achieve sustainability goals.
