Rotary Steam Motor
Low flow, low pressure power generation solution
A modern and cost-effective source of power for your facility
The Rotary Steam Motor is an alternative to single-stage steam turbines for low steam flow applications. The steam motor expands the steam through rotary vanes using a patent-pending design that allows for efficient turndown. With a lower capital cost than a steam turbine, this option opens the field for power generation from small steam systems, which would otherwise be uneconomical.
Steam motors are ideal for low flow PRV bypass applications in a wide range of facilities including breweries, hospitals, schools, universities and more. If you would like to discuss the suitability of a steam motor in your system, please contact us.
