The thermal energy derived from power generation can be effectively recuperated for various practical applications. The clean exhaust emissions can be directly employed for processes like drying or, alternatively, captured as hot water through a Heat Recovery Module (HRM). Furthermore, it can be transformed into steam utilizing a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) or serve as combustion air for burners.
Capstone Microturbines are capable of both power generation and the generation of clean heat in their exhaust stream. The exhaust contains 18% oxygen, with low levels of NOx, CO, and VOCs, suitable for use in drying processes, such as spray drying, timber treatment, or paint drying. For direct drying applications, package efficiencies can reach up to 95%.
