The CHP solution for Hidden Fuels
With the development of ClinX, B+K has made it its mission to make efficient use of even low energy potentials and enable environmentally-neutral reuse of previously unused raw material sources. ClinX is a modular micro-turbine system that is easy to use. Its central combustion unit can be extended to include energy conversion, water treatment, or refrigeration modules as needed.
Given the finite nature of fossil fuels, the time has come to make use of hidden fuels as a resource-saving technology for energy conversion. As a mobile, decentralised small plant, ClinX efficiently exploits the energetic potential of these materials. Thanks to its highly advanced air purification technology, it can deliver the same level of performance as much larger, existing stationary combustion systems.
Fuel storage systems easily compensate for seasonal fluctuations in fuel volume. Since waste material is almost continuously being produced, decentralised plants that can deliver a continuous supply of electricity by combusting hidden fuels and biomass will make an important contribution to the success of the energy revolution.
The economic efficiency of the system allows users to avoid or reduce costs for electricity and heat, grid usage, and waste disposal.
Compared to existing systems in the same performance class, ClinX is set apart by its fuel flexibility and decentralization.
Since conventional CHP and cogeneration systems are often designed for the use of natural gas, they are not suitable for the use of heterogeneous fuel classes. ClinX makes it possible to gasify a wide range of waste materials and thus offers a much broader range of applications compared to original systems.
A combustion chamber converts waste materials into heat, which is fed into a unique high-temperature heat exchanger. Residual heat is made available for the generation of process air, steam, or hot water for use in downstream processes.
The micro gas turbine working in parallel takes in fresh air, compresses it, and forwards it into the heat exchanger. There the heat is transferred from the flue gas to the air. The heated, compressed air then relaxes in the turbine, which ultimately drives the compressor and generator to generate electricity.
The turbine exhaust air is additionally fed back into the combustion chamber and used as combustion air, thus saving fuel. The process is therefore very resource-efficient.
