Curious if your heat source is viable for generating power using our products? Unsure of the amount of thermal energy available and want to calculate it?

Loading may take a few moments – sit back, relax, and it will be up in no time.

Applications

Applicable fluid heat sources are between 70°C and 150°C.
Gaseous heat sources above 150°C can also be used with the deployment of a secondary heat exchange loop.

Our low-temperature ORC solutions use hot water as fuel in order to generate up to 125 kWe of clean electricity, at no additional cost to the operator. That water can get to us any number of ways, as long as we have enough of it and at a high enough temperature. Power output is directly correlated to the flow rate and source temperature, however an application can get away with a lower flow rate if the water is a high enough temperature.

Power Generation

Engines generate large amounts of heat and require cooling. By adding an ORC system to your engine you can produce clean electricity from available heat, increasing efficiency up to 10% with no additional fuel combustion or emissions. The cooling ability of the ORC significantly reduces the cooling load, which can lead to the unit serving as a radiator replacement.

Methane Optimization

For industries dealing with natural gases - such as oil extraction, biogas production, wastewater treatment, or LFG production - integrating an ORC heat recovery system can provide a reliable baseload power supply that decreases operating costs, boosts engine efficiency, or even eliminate flaring.

null

Industrial Waste Heat

Industrial processes generate loads of heat, over half of this thermal energy is lost as waste heat and vented to the atmosphere or dumped into our bodies of water. With ElectraTherm this low-temperature heat from industrial processes can be used to generate additional, clean power - improving your bottom line and the environment.

Flare Elimination

The flaring of gases is common place where methane is present, with traditional systems meant ro reduce emissions are costly and carry with them large footprints. ElectraTherm's simple and reliable ORC systems can cost-effectively reduce emissions while generating clean electricity, with the potential to completely eliminate flaring.

Geothermal

With recent advancements in ORC technology, low-temperature sources of geothermal such as hot springs and co-produced fluids can now be used to generate profitable power - with no additional costs to the operator. Our ORC systems are perfect for generating electricity for profit or providing baseload power to projects that are either remote or require small footprints.

null

Biomass Systems

Projects incorporating biomass / biogas boilers for power generation, district heating, or anaerobic digestion are particularly attractive for use with our ORC systems due to reduced capital costs (i.e. the boiler) and incredibly easy integration.

Factors that make a successful application

HEAT

The amount of heat available is a large factor in determining the amount of power that can be generated. Typically, heat sources above 100°C are considered the most practical. Along with this, the flow of water also plays a critical role. Find more information on the optimal conditions here.

RUN HOURS

The more time an application is up and running, the more waste heat there is available to convert into clean electricity. There are 8760 hours in a year and a suitable application experiences 80% up-time, whereas an ideal application experiences 95% up-time. 

COST OF POWER

Installing an ElectraTherm ORC heat to power system comes with several benefits, from reduced emissions to increased efficiency. However, the most tangible benefit often realized by customers is the value of electricity produced. The most successful applications have costs of electricity greater than $0.10/kWh.
