Applicable fluid heat sources are between 70°C and 150°C.
Heat sources above 150°C – such as exhaust gases or thermal oils – can be utilized with the deployment of an additional heat exchanger.
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.
