Micro ORC. Microgeneration and Microcogeneration, combined heat and power (micro-CHP), equipments for energy recovery from low grade heat sources
What we offer:
Rank ® is a organization focused in power recovery from low grade heat sources (T>80ºC) with innovative equipements based on Organic Rankine Cycles (ORC) and other advanced technologies as transcritical cycles and variations of power cycles activated with low temperature (Goswami, Kalina).
From 2000 year we have developed proyects and studies in the area of power generation and its eficiency use. At last years we have been working on the development of equipments that allow power generation from thermal sources taken as residuals because of its low temperature (>80ºC).
Rank ® designs and assembles microgeneration and microcogeneration, combined heat and power (micro-CHP), equipments for energy recovery from low grade heat sources. So, Rank® can generate electric power up to 50-100 kWe using temperatures from 80ºC. Furthermore Rank® systems also can generate electric and thermal power at the same time, until 400 kWt of thermal power (in the form of hot water up to 85ºC). All our products are made and tested at the Rank® facilities in Spain.
Low grade heat sources, using traditional Rankine cycle with water steam, does not give satisfactory results because of its low efficiency. Our technology replaces water in other working fluid able to recover low thermal sources. That shows us how to solve a wide variety of problems from enviroment and power generation:
Natural sources: (thermo solar, geothermal, biomass, etc..)
Waste heat from industrial process (kilns, dryers, boilers, cooling systems, etc..)
Waste heat from electric power generators (chimeney, thermal oil from cooling system, etc..)
