Energent demonstrates a waste heat recovery power system on an incinerator in Japan

Energent provided a design of waste heat power recovery system and a variable phase turbine to generate power from an incinerator that burns waste chemicals in Japan.

The unit is a unique design - a hermetic turbine and generator assembly. The working fluid cools the generator and lubricates the bearings so no rotating shaft seals are required. The unit has been operated successfully generating 100 kW from the very low temperature waste heat, 160 degrees Fahrenheit. When the incinerator is operating at full capacity, the unit will generate 175 kw.

This unit is in northern Japan in an area decimated by the tsunami and earth quake where additional sources of energy are needed. It is contributing to that requirement.
