COMPONENT LINES FOR
LANGENBURG WASTE-TO-ENERGY PLANTS
The component line for a Langenburg Waste-to-Energy plant will feature the following proprietary components:
INTAKE CONVERTER > FUEL SYNTHESIZER > TURBINE > GENERATOR > POWER CONVERTER
Depending on configuration, pure water can be separated from the intake prior to conversion, and before fuel synthesis.
DEVELOPMENT OF POWER IN TURBINES
Although standard turbines can be retrofitted to run on Langenburg Technology (LT) proprietary noncarbon fuel, LT proprietary power units employ a closed-loop energy cycle. The turbines operate exclusively on LT noncarbon fuel made from waste.
Regarding the engine's working fluid... conventional closed-cycle engines can use air, helium, nitrogen, supercritical carbon dioxide, and other noble/inert gases. In a Langenburg closed-cycle turbine, water vapor is the only substance formed in its closed-loop energy cycle.
Heat sources for conventional closed-cycle turbines can include solar, nuclear, hydrocarbon / petroleum, and biomass. Heat can be introduced into the closed-loop from an external source through a heat exchanger or it can be developed internally, or both. Langenburg proprietary turbines develop all heat internally by a proprietary reaction of its noncarbon fuel while under vacuum, versus conventional combustors that oxidate hydrocarbon fuel in a high heat/compression continuum.
Because the engine exhaust is emission-free, it is clean and ready for recirculation without the need for any filtering or conditioning. In the Langenburg closed-loop energy cycle, there are no particulates or contaminates that would otherwise create a problem for the engine's intake, nor any residual accumulations over time. The Langenburg Waste-to-Energy plant does not have air intake ducts , and no exhaust outlets.
ADVANTAGES OF LANGENBURG PROPRIETARY
• Advanced operational characteristics beyond thermodynamic/heat engines.
• Reduced physical size (no intake or exhaust plenum).
• Very low maintenance (engine interior remains clean).
• Proprietary quantum intercooling system (no heat sinks or exchangers).
• Throughput heat and sound is recycled within the closed-loop energy cycle.
• Zero emissions and 100% conversion without residuals.
• Built-in engine lubricant reconditioning (extends operations between maintenance cycles)
• Turbine shaft air-bearings (majority of engine friction eliminated).
• Low operational temperature (less self-destructive without typical material fatigue).
In conventional a closed-cycle engines, the opportunity for regenerative power is limited by temperature and pressure of intake air (working fluid). Because of the above-listed factors, LT proprietary turbines can achieve performance and reliability specifications that are far beyond a typical Brayton Heat Engine. The LT proprietary intake cooling apparatus (effectively acting as secondary air induction) instantly reduces intake temperature causing the coefficient of expansion to become extremely high. This expansion potential imparts extra kinetic energy across the turbine to advance mechanical power far beyond the energy available from the fuel.
