The screw rotor steam engine

Is intended for driving an electricity generator and subsequent utilization of the low-pressure steam for the boiler station auxiliaries. The SRSE uses a rotor mechanism (a screw pair) as the principal operating element. Its drive shaft is connected to a generator or another driven device (a pump, a smoke extractor, etc.).

  • Compactness
  • Simple design
  • High repairability
  • May use low-quality steam
  • Flexibility, quick start and shutdown
  • Power control range: 15…100 %
  • Stable output shaft torque
  • Operation reliability and fail-safety
  • Potentially high service life (because rotors do not contact each other)

Main view of the turbine case (isometry)

The power plant permits to use excess enrgy of expanding steam and to obtain mechanical energy used for generation of electricity without burning additional fuel in boilers.

The plant is very easy to operate and maintain, it has a high service life, operation reliability and safety, may use low-quality steam.

The electric system of the power plant power takeoff based on an asynchronous generator operating in parallel with the mains guarantees high reliability. Power output into the mains does not destabilize them.
