Carson City, Nev.-based Langson Energy has created a way to make green energy from wasted pressure in a cost-effective manner. This new technology – called the Gas Letdown Generator – allows the company to use readily available components that are robust and not costly.
The Gas Letdown Generator is more cost-effective than turbines and allows professionals to produce green power from pressure currently wasted in gas letdown stations, also called pressure reduction stations. Pressure reduction valves, or Joule-Thomson valves, simply can be placed where pressure mechanically is reduced and then supplemented with the Gas Letdown Generator to create green power.
The Langson Energy technology will revolutionize the economics of green energy, officials said.
Gas Letdown Generator is Better Choice Than Turbines
The Gas Letdown Generator by Langson Energy is superior to turbines because turbines require high capital costs and experience difficulty in handling fluctuations in flow rates and pressure, according to Langson Energy officials. The recoverable value of the electricity generated from these rotary engines that extract energy from the flow of a fluid also is a problem.
However, the operating costs of the Langson Energy technology system are less than ¼ cent per kilowatt, which is much lower than those of turbines. In addition, this Gas Letdown Generator technology can withstand contaminants that would cause great harm to turbines.
The chief cost requirement of the Gas Letdown Generator is the completion of a maintenance check every 50,000 hours of operation.
