Skinner Turbines (5 HP to 3000 HP)

With a heritage in steam-driven equipment dating back to 1868, Skinner 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.  Our S-Series models feature sleeve bearings and are generally in compliance with applicable API standards.  Our SB-Series models feature ball bearings and are a more economical choice for most applications.

The S-11 and SB-11 models are usually replacement drivers for small lubrication pumps requiring 50 horsepower or less. 

The S-18 and SB-18 models are the bread and butter drivers for a majority of pump applications up to 400 horsepower.   These machines are ideally suited for smaller pump, fan or compressor drives and for small electric generator sets.   The simplicity of the SB-18 usually makes it the preferred driver in this power range.

The vertical SBV-18 uses the same bearing sizes as our SB-18 with different angular contact for the orientation and grease lubrication with lip type seals on the shaft.  The power range of the SBV-18 is from 5 to 300 horsepower.

The S-23 and SB-23 models are mid-range machines for applications requiring up to 900 horsepower.  These machines produce substantial power for low steam pressure applications and are less expensive than our larger machines. 

The work-horse of our line is the S-28 model, which can produce up to 2000 horsepower.  Its larger size also allows for better efficiency.  Aside from driving pumps, fans and compressors, it is widely used for electric generator sets.

The SK-25 is our largest machine and it is rated at up to 3000 horsepower.  It is most likely to be considered for special purpose applications or large electric generator sets.  State-of-the-art construction features of the SK-25 turbine include:  velocity design with 2 wheels for ease of maintenance with easily replaceable blades, horizontal split construction for inspection and over-haul, sleeve type radial bearings, tilting pad thrust bearing, force feed lubrication and electronic speed controls.

COMBINED HEAT AND POWER: ENERGY SAVINGS AND TAX SAVINGS

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!
