BACK PRESSURE TURBINES

Industrial Boilers America leads the way to zero waste by developing, deploying, and licensing superior back pressure turbines that are manufactured at a fraction of the cost of our competitors.

WHAT WE DO

BACK PRESSURE TURBINE EXPERTS

Usually, the steam sent into the mains is not much above saturation temperature. The term “back-pressure” for back pressure turbines refers to turbines that exhaust steam at atmospheric pressures and above. Industrial processes often include a further expansion for mechanical drives, using small steam turbines for driving heavy equipment that runs continuously for long periods. Power generation capability reduces significantly when steam is used at appreciable pressure rather than being expanded to vacuum in a condenser.

OUR CAPABILITIES

ELIMINATE WASTE WITH BACK PRESSURE TURBINES

Backpressure steam turbines are a great contributor to Cost-Effective Power Generation. The energy from high-pressure inlet steam is efficiently converted into electricity, and low-pressure exhaust steam is provided to a plant process. The turbine exhaust steam has a lower temperature than the superheated steam created when pressure is reduced through a PRV. In order to make up for this heat or enthalpy loss and meet process energy requirements, steam plants with backpressure turbine installations must increase their boiler steam throughput (typically by 5% to 7%). Every Btu that is recovered as high-value electricity is replaced with an equivalent Btu of heat for downstream processes. 

Thermodynamically, steam turbines achieve an isentropic efficiency of 20% to 70%. Economically, however, the turbine generates power at the efficiency of the steam boiler. The resulting power generation efficiency (modern steam boilers operate at approximately 80% efficiency) is well in excess of the efficiency for state-of-the-art single- or combined-cycle gas turbines. High efficiency means low electricity generating costs. Backpressure turbines can produce electrical energy at costs that are often less than $0.04/kWh. The electricity savings alone—not to mention ancillary benefits from enhanced on-site electricity reliability and reduced emissions of carbon dioxide and criteria pollutants—are often sufficient to completely recover the cost of the initial capital outlay.
