GE Hot Gas Expanders for power recovery systems help refinery operators make the most of process waste gas; turning it into power and consequently decreasing energy costs and CO2 emissions. Our advanced engineering and manufacturing processes have made us a global leader in turboexpander solutions for energy recovery and refrigeration.
Turboexpanders are available configured with centrifugal compressors, generators or oil brakes for natural gas applications, petrochemical plants or refineries. They are also designed for applications such as energy recovery from refinery hot gas waste streams.
GE 18 MW Hot Gas Expander can save about $9 million in electricity costs per year while avoiding more than 244,000 metric tons in CO2 emissions
Extensive improvement programs for expanders enable us to guarantee 4-5 years of uninterrupted run time
- Materials selection and mechanical/aerodynamic design enable GE expanders to withstand corrosion and erosion caused by crude oil
