Please study current price list given below and then decide what you want. We manufacture and export the following capacity steam engines and steam power plants. These power plants are not automatic. Continuous manual feeding of wood or biomass to boiler is essential. Moreover, electricity generated in these power plants cannot be fed into grid as steam engine are without governors. But, these steam power plants are highly suitable for agro processing activity by connecting steam engines directly to oil expeller, sugar cane crusher, rice huller, water pump for irrigation etc. Of course, electricity also can be generated and used to drive motors as a captive power plant. Frequency can vary a little bit which does not harm in normal working. But in a grid feeding, frequency variation is not allowed. So, it can work as independent power plant.

  41. john kiewiet - September 19, 2012, 8:36 am Reply

    Hi John

    A good idea,some comments:

    The Indian sourced Tiny Tech engines might be worth investigating.

    The wood consumption used by the boiler will probably be in the order of 2 to 3 kg per kg of steam produced, keep in mind labour involved.

    The steam engine will probably need about 20 kg of steam per kw of energy produced on output shaft.

    One would have to look at how much energy is required for the required temperature rise in the greenhouse, the losses, return condensate from heating elements, and then size the engine and steam supply.

    Some basic water treatment for the boiler feedwater, monitoring boiler water and feed water chemistry, eg ph, tds, alkalinities .

    Generally in industrialised countries there is always the legal side to consider with boiler registration, annual inspections, design codes, etc which is not too big a problem if considered from day one.

    Sirs
    I am very interested in a residential size wood fired or paper fired generating system,what size would you recommendation a monthly usage rate of around 1200kwh a month.
    Any info. Greatly appreciated

  43. john kiewiet - September 25, 2012, 9:38 am Reply

    Hi

    Energy sourced from steam is useful if you have a heat sink for the exhaust from the engine or turbine, eg this could be space heating for a house or as mentioned above for heating a poly tunnel / greenhouse, (also very useful for process industries using a lot of low grade heat eg paper and sugar mills).

    The exhaust could go to waste if there is no shortage of water or to a condenser which will need a cooling circuit or could be air cooled depending on technical capability.

    If this is not the case and you do not have a use for the engine exhaust then a load of 1200 kwh per month would be better sourced from solar pv panels and / or a small diesel generator.

    1200kwh per month or about 40 per day or an average of 2 per hour but the chances are most of the power would be used when people are up and about, I would still recommend a power source of about 5/6 kw per hour to cover peaks in load demand and motor start ups.

    A slow speed water cooled diesel engine with large flywheels would be the best option and if there is enough money solar pv panels , battery and inverter as back up would be the way to go. The engine cooling circuit could still be used for some house heating if required.

    Good Day All

    Coming back to Terry ‘s request regarding a steam power plant.

    It might be worth while contacting Tiny Tech who do supply small boilers and steam engines.

    Should you source equipment out of your home country I mentioned that compliance with home country legislation will be required.

    Boilers being fired vessels operating under pressure are normally subject to construction standards specific to country of manufacture , some standards are well accepted round the world eg ASME, JIS, EN,

    Once you have sized your energy requirements, you will have confirm that you have sufficient fuel, in this case cut or chipped wood readily available.

    You will also need a water source of preferably “soft” clean water with low organic content or you will have to install water softening equipment if the water is “hard”.

    Water softeners will remove magnesium and calcium based salts found in most water, but they do need to be regenerated at regular intervals depending on through put design and water usage.

    If the boiler feed water is of reasonable quality ( softened with little or no solid and organic matter) , boiler blowdown losses should be less than 5%. If the water quality is poor ie hard with solid and organic matter then the blowdown losses will climb requiring more fuel, water, and the boiler will become difficult to manage with internal foaming taking place, scale deposition on water side surfaces and eventual metal failure due to low heat transfer from the fire side to the water side.

    If you are happy about fuel and water supplies and with an electrical power demand ranging from 2 to 6 kw your cut wood requirements will range between 120 kg to 360 kg per hour with steam requirements ranging from 40 to 120 kg per hour.

    A 10 HP ( 7.5 kw ) steam engine coupled with a boiler capable of 150 kg per hour would cover fluctuating loads and motor starts eg refrigerators, pumps etc. Alternator sizing would be 6 to 7.5 kw.

    The engine should be equipped with a speed governor that will maintain engine speed during electrical load fluctuations and thereby maintaining the frequency of your AC power supply ( North America is 60 Hertz and Europe, South Asia, Africa is 50 Hertz ).

    Alternator speed n = 60/ pairs of poles in alternator and for a 60 Hertz system alternator speeds range from 3600 rpm , 1800, 900, 450 rpm. ( 50 hertz systems alternator speeds range from 3000, 1500, 750 rpm.

    The alternator operating speed should be in a similar range to the engine speed and the correct alternator speed obtained by selection of the correct vee belt pulley sizes on the engine and alternator shafts.

    The alternator should be a self exciting or permanent magnet type and if run at its design speed will deliver power at the design voltage.

    Commercial steam turbines for power outputs below 10 kw are rare and up to this figure steam engines can be sourced. In the days of steam railway locomotives, small saturated steam turbines were fitted for providing power for lighting.

    A steam turbines are now generally designed for superheated steam which means a more complicated boiler.

    Small boilers can either be a fire tube shell type boiler or a water tube boiler where the heat is on the out side of the tubes and water inside.

    The smaller boilers can either have a fixed grate or a dump grate where the fire bars can open to drop ash.

    With wood firing there will be little ash ( about 2% of wood fired) but this can vary depending on soil and mud attached to the wood being fired.

    Boilers will have to be provided with certain mountings including :

    Feed water and steam isolating valves
    Boiler blowdown valves
    Air release and drain valves
    Water sight / gauge glasses
    Pressure gauges

    Other auxiliary equipment will include two feed pumps ( one operating and one standby)
    Feed water storage tank sized for at least 4 hours steaming
    Water softening plant

    The required water and steam piping to connect items together

    Blow down vessel or pit to ensure that there is no human contact with hot steam or water being released during boiler startup and operation.

    All hot surfaces should be lagged ie piping, boiler casing, engine cylinders

    A building or shed to house your equipment in.

    Once drawings of the proposal are done and equipment listed, a start can be made with costing.

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Re: (9) STEAM POWER PLANT 10 KVA (FOR ELECTRIFICATION)

    Kindly advise what is the needed daily volume of rice husk and or bamboo (which are the 2 bimass items we have) required to run the 10KVA plant 24 hours per day?

    Thank you

    Hi Pat

    You comment regarding the Coppus turbine and Kato alternator would be a good engineering choice for a small steam power plant.

    One would need a boiler operating at the design steam conditions for the turbine and a use or sink for the exhaust steam.

    Coppus make turbines equipped with ring lubricated ball or sleeve bearings with oil ring lubrication which does not require a pressure fed oil system, a cooling system might be required depending on operating conditions and steam temperatures.

    This sort of system comes at a cost but if well looked after will give good service for many years.

    Going to Lorena’s question:

    If you desire to burn a biomass fuel it will have to be chopped or shredded to small bits to effectively mix with combustion air which should be heated.

    The moisture level of the fuel will detract from final boiler performance.

    In my experience of firing bagasse ( shredded sugar cane at 50% moisture with 2% remnant sugar present,and with combustion air heated to about 200 deg C) we would achieve about 4 to 5 tonnes of steam per tonne of bagasse fired, but this depends on boiler mechanical condition, operating conditions and level of instrumentation and automation of the boiler plant.

    For small scale installations I doubt whether you would achieve this level of steam production.

    Again you would probably need about 20 kg of steam per kva and at least 50 to 100kg of fuel per hour depending on the plant and the final net cv of the fuel being fired.

    Hi Pat

    A neat unit, looks as if the turbine is equipped with a governor which is required, the steam conditions seem to be suited for a low pressure saturated steam application though this needs to be confirmed.

    As mentioned in earlier messages this turbine will supply quite a lot of energy from the low pressure steam exhaust which is best used for some sort of process heating or should be diverted to a condenser.

    As mentioned before, operating experience will indicate whether bearing cooling water and a more sophisticated oil system will be required.

    The electrical parameters delivered by the alternator need to be confirmed that they would be suited for the area of operation and type of intended use.

    Regards

    John Kiewiet

    Hi Hugh

    You will have to approach a supplier in this regard.

    An Indian supplier of small steam engines and boilers has supplied details above and there are websites giving details of available small steam plant. This type of plant would probably be made to order once all specific detailing and purchaser requirements have been confirmed.
