Energy recovery application of a turbine
Our turbines generate electricity even from small amounts of process gases.
With a low investment outlay, you can convert your existing residual energy into electricity and thus significantly reduce your commercial electricity consumption. Click below to find out more about the turbine generator.
Using a turbine for an aircraft emergency door
The pyrotechnic ignited, indirect turbine drive with reduction gearing is used for the PYROTAK emergency door system. This system offers a high power-output by a very small-sized turbine.
Use case 1: turbine grinder application
Use of a high-speed turbine in a turbine grinder
- Power = 250 W
- Free Speed = 70,000 1/min
Use case 2: turbine grinding machine
A two-stage curtis turbine is used for this turbine grinder. When compared to multi-stage overpressure turbines, this grinder has a simple layout and is especially cost effective. The deciding advantage for this application is the extreme low weight.
- Power = 2.2 kW
- Free Speed= 12,200 1/min
Design and functionality of a turbine motor
Pneumatic turbines are continuous-flow machines, which can be executed in single-stage or dual-stage design.
The conversion of the pressure energy into kinetic energy takes place in the inlet nozzle. On a two-stage turbine, the largest part of the kinetic energy is converted in the 1st turbine wheel. The air-flow is diverted over the stationary turbine wheel. The remaining energy is converted in the 2nd turbine wheel.
The turbine does not require any contact seals. Therefore, the operation of the turbine with non-lubricated compressed-air is totally free from wear. Continuous-flow machines optimally utilize the energy of the compressed air. Therefore, the air requirement of a turbine motor is 1/3rd less when compared to an pneumatic vane motor. The power to weight ratio [kg/kW] is only half.
