Patent for Sale:

Steam Power Plant - Major Efficiency Improvement (17%) and CO2 Reduction    

Retrofit power plant, easy to implement and low cost. No need for design changes. The technololgy has been proven, installed on several units.

Overview

At today’s fuel costs this technology can save over $100,000 per week, even in smaller size units. In some power plants the certain cap-and-trade of CO2 and other gases will allow more use of this invention.

The technology allows improved steam expansion. Improvement due to more expansion of steam. Less steam losses.

This invention may be considered a renewable energy project.

This technology was developed by an experienced licensed mechanical power plant engineer. If required they will be available to work after the sale as a consultant.

Westinghouse information is available, please click the ‘Tell Me More’ link to request it.

Primary Application of the Technology

The technology can benefit most steam power plants even several fully loaded units. References are available on request - including ones from the former American Society of Mechanical Engineers national president and utility engineers.

Competitive Advantage

Only known method to transfer lower temperature heat from one unit to another to improve fuel efficiency.

Major value in low cost method to improve efficiency without requiring extra flow, or disruption in existing cycle. Installation can be done on line.

The seller may consider selling these patents individually.
