These days there is a new buzz-word in our industry. It’s “Combined Heat and Power” or “CHP” for short. It can be defined as the simultaneous or sequential generation of useful heat and power from the same fuel source. Thirty years ago we called it “Co-generation”. Either way, it’s about getting the biggest bang for your buck!
There are significant savings to be had by reviewing your steam plant system and making system modifications. You can replace a pressure reducing valve with a Skinner steam turbine electric generator package or just add a Skinner steam turbine electric generator package at the end of your steam loop. The savings from producing your own electricity may allow you to recoup your investment in as little as two years.
But wait, there’s more! If your CHP project meets the IRS criteria for the Energy Tax Credit, you save even more money. Moreover, in some states like California there are state tax incentives to which you may be entitled.
Skinner builds steam turbine electric generator packages from 5KW to 2MW. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-868-8577.
Orders are being accepted for our small vertical turbine based on our horizontal SB18 (ball bearing) model. The vertical SBV18 uses the same bearing sizes as the SB18 with different angular contact for the orientation. We use grease lubrication with lip type seals on the shaft because we believe plant operators would rather change the seals every few years than tolerate constant oil leakage. There are various mounting options to meet your needs. The power range of the SBV18 is from 5 to 300 horsepower, though most applications are likely to be in the 10 to 60 horsepower range.
Power-Gen 2018 will be held this coming December 4-6, 2018, in Orlando, Florida. This will be the 30th Anniversary event.
As a result of hurricane Harvey, the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia (TPS 2017), originally scheduled for September 12-14, 2017, in Houston, Texas, was postponed until December 12-14, 2017.
With a heritage in steam-driven equipment dating back to 1868, Skinner Power Systems has earned a solid reputation in building single-stage steam turbines for clients around the world. Thousands of customers have designated Skinner as the driver of choice for their rotating equipment...
