COMPONENT LINES FOR

LANGENBURG WASTE-TO-ENERGY PLANTS

 

50 MW Waste-to-Energy Plant Components

COMPONENTS
The component line for a Langenburg Waste-to-Energy plant feature the following proprietary components:

INTAKE CONVERSION MODULE  >  FUEL SYNTHESIS MODULE  >  TURBINE  >  GENERATOR  >  POWER CONVERTER


DEVELOPMENT OF POWER IN TURBINES
Although standard turbines can be retrofitted to use Langenburg proprietary noncarbon fuel, Langenburg proprietary power units contain a closed-cycle turbine engine.  The turbines operate exclusively on Langenburg proprietary 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 the working fluid (air) through its outlet plenum that is recycled 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 – there are no particulates or contaminates that would otherwise create a problem for the engine's intake, and without any residual accumulations over time.


ADVANTAGES OF LANGENBURG PROPRIETARY
CLOSED-CYCLE TURBINES


• 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)

• emitted heat and sound is recycled in the closed-loop energy cycle

• zero emissions

• built-in lubricant reconditioning (extended operational cycle between maintenance)

• spin shaft air-bearings (majority of friction eliminated)

• low overall operational temperature (less self-destructive)

Even in a conventional a closed-cycle engines, regenerative mechanical power development is limited by temperature and pressure of intake air (working fluid). Efficiency is beyond that of a conventional Brayton Heat Engine.

In a Langenburg proprietary turbine... the working fluid fluid enters the Langenburg proprietary intercooling system.  Because of the extended cooling factor, this apparatus acts as a kind of secondary air induction; the temperature of the working fluid entering the engine is extremely cold so the coefficient of expansion is extremely high.  This expansion potential imparts extra kinetic energy across the turbine to advance mechanical power far beyond the energy available from the fuel.
