Boiler and Turbine

In 2003/4 a 10ton Steam/Hr. @ 20 bar pressure waste fired Combi Boiler was commissioned to produce steam to run a 0.5Mega watt Turbine that was to generate electric power to meet the energy needs of the factory. The advantage of this arrangement was that the Boiler could burn ALL the wastes of the production thereby eliminating smoke pollution by the open burning of these wastes.

The excess energy produced is supplied free of charge to the local Hospital and the water pumping station.
