Sustainability is one of FEG’s key disciplines and the company are focusing on the recovery of energy from waste heat using a novel technology from Heliex heat or directly in steam systems including fully saturated steam. This gives us scope for applications in a wide range of industrial and process industries including: Electricity Generation, Petrochemical Industries, Glass & Refractories, Pharmaceuticals, Food, Brewing & Distilling, Paper Production, Biomass and Land Fill Gas Engines. The Helix uses well proven rotate screw technology, conventionally used in the production of compressed air, developed and patented for expansion. Using the twin rotary screw principle, Helix Expanders can use the pressure reduction step in steam distribution circuits to generate clean electricity. Heliz is a si mpler and more robust technology than conventional turbines with fewer parts, lower speeds and is not sensitive to steam quality. The system has a very low maintenance requirement with low cost of ownership and offere sensible paybacks that are not dependent on incentives to be viable.
