L.A. Turbine offers custom design solutions for a variety of applications. Some turboexpander designs include:
With this configuration, the energy extracted from a gas expanding across the turbine can be converted into electric power by connecting the load side of the expander shaft to a generator.
High-Speed Direct Drive Expander-Generator
In most cases, the operating speed of the expander with this design will be at a higher RPM than the operating speed of the generator. It is, therefore, necessary to utilize a speed reduction gearbox to facilitate appropriate coupling speed for the unit.
Alternatively, for some applications, LAT can incorporate a high-speed generator in the design. The expander is directly connected to its input shaft thus avoiding the need for a costly and complicated gearbox.
