Low flow, low pressure power generation solution

A modern and cost-effective source of power for your facility
Steam Motor
AirClean’s sister company, Practical Steam, developed the Steam Motor as 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 which allows for efficient turndown. With a lower capitol cost than a steam turbine, this option opens the field for power generation from small steam systems which would otherwise be uneconomical.
