The Rank® machines produce electrical energy and useful heat from a low-temperature heat source, improving the economic and environmental benefit of the processes.
They are based on the Rankine organic cycle (ORC, Organic Rankine Cycle) and are especially suitable for the energy revalorization of low-temperature heat sources. Among the main applications of the Rank® machines, we highlight the utilisation of waste heat and the use of renewable heat sources. It is also interesting the combination of the heat sink in cogeneration or trigeneration systems.
Rank® general catalog
A Rank® machine for every need
Whatever your need is, we have a Rank® module that can be adapted to it, through a variety of products that cover a wide range of thermal and power applications.
The wide range of Rank® products is divided into four categories (LT, MT, HT and HTC) as a function of the input temperature of the heat source to the ORC machine. Then, each category is divided into three models (1, 2 and 3), depending on the output power generated. Consequently, there is a Rank® machine capable of generating electricity efficiently for each specific case.
Therefore, the Rank® machines are connected to heat sources with inlet temperatures between 90 °C and 210 °C and thermal power between 100
When there are demands for useful heat with temperatures above 100°C, the Rank® HP equipment allows to take advantage of heat sources of lower temperature and satisfy the demands of useful heat at a higher temperature. It is a high temperature heat pump, with maximum temperatures of heat production of 140ºC, and values of COP of 4.
