Heat and Waste Power

Spilling get’s more from what’s left over
A typical application field for Spilling steam engines and steam turbines is the recycling of exhaust heat, waste and lean gases to generate mechanical and electrical energy.

Steam turbines are preferably installed when no heat is required after the process and the steam mass flow is large or constant enough. Single-stage or multi-stage steam turbines are employed as condensing units depending on the live steam parameters. The exhaust heat is discharged into a downstream (vacuum) condenser and so, as much electricity as possible is generated.

Steam engines are especially in demand when the heat from exhaust steam can be used during back pressure operation and fluctuating steam amounts exist, or when using a steam turbine would not be economical due to the steam mass flows available. 
exhaust heat and waste power
Spilling Waste-to-Energy plants are suitable for

  • Gas and diesel engine power plants
  • Gas turbine plants
  • Glassworks
  • Steel industry
  • Waste incineration plants
  • Sewage treatment plants
  • Thermal afterburning plants 

The selection and dimensioning of all components required for the steam cycle such as e.g. steam boiler, steam power unit or condenser plant are performed considering various aspects. These include the 

  • availability of exhaust heat , exhaust heat temperatures and the quality of waste or recycling materials 
  • amounts of exhaust heat and waste materials as well as their temperature levels
  • operating profile and the chronological profile of the exhaust heat occurrence 
  • type and degree of exhaust steam utilisation 
  • operational overall conditions
  • available investment budget
possibilities for waste to energy utilisation
