Boost your steam system performance

A robust addition to recover all your wasted energy

The Microsteam® Turbine (MST) is a compact energy recovery system.

It generates electricity from pressure and flow energy previously wasted in your steam system’s Pressure Reducing Valve.

By delivering pressure and flow to the downstream process, the untapped potential energy of your steam is passed through the MST to produce electricity.

The Microsteam Turbine is certified in the US Department of Energy’s heat & power eCatalog as a Recognized Packager.

The Microsteam® Turbine Power

The Microsteam® Turbine can be installed in parallel to the PRV’s to reduce pressure while also harvesting unused thermal energy:

How the Microsteam® Turbine works

Energy savings

CO2 reductions

Resiliency

Example case study

Your current steam installation is upgraded with the Microsteam® Turbine. It will experience a pressure drop of 200 to 125 (PSIG) at a steam flow of 20,000 lbs per hour. The key results wil be:

~2.3MM kWh generated per year ~1,797 tons of CO2 avoided per year

This is the equivalent of:

0
Gallons of gasoline consumed
0
Homes’ electricity use for one year
0
Number of smartphones charged

A compact solution

Fits through a standard doorway
Hospitals
Lumber mills
Universities
