Turbine-Generators

BNI terms a turbine-generator as a machine which produces alternating electrical power directly at grid conditions,either a synchronous or induction type.

BNI offers radial in-flow and axial designs (including two stage) for unique process applications, up to 10 MW in capacity.  Typical applications are Organic Rankine Cycle or Brayton Cycle power turbines, handling hydrocarbons, refrigerants or CO2 as working fluids.  Other heritage applications include process letdown expanders for air or nitrogen.  Material offerings include nodular iron, steel, stainless steel and inconel for high temperature duties.  Sealing options include dual seals with working fluid, bearing lubricant or other fluids acting as the seal buffer.  Bearing options include rolling element, fluid film or hydrostatic.  Discharge mating pipes with integral diffusers are typically included to ensure the highest efficiency.

BNI offers turbines as one-off products for unique project applications or custom turbine product families designed for OEMs of packaged power systems.  BNI can offer a fully skidded unit with turbine, speed reducing gearbox, genenrator, lube systems and PLC based instrumentation monitoring and control system.  Also common is the supply of the turbine as a single module directly to the OEM for skidding by their operation.  Either way you get the performance benefit of a custom engineered turbine and can use as much or as little of BNI's experience as desired to ensure a trouble free installation and commissioning.

Barber-Nichols has the infrastructure to support the sale, installation, and maintenance of Turbine-Generators in North America only.
