Plate Efficiency Converts Maximum Geothermal Heat Into Electricity

Dry steam, flash steam and binary cycle geothermal power plants can generate usable power when geothermal well water temperature is 175°C (350°F) or higher. The efficiency of Tranter Plate Heat Exchangers puts geothermal heat to maximum use generating electricity. Geothermal source water is cycled through a Tranter Shell & Plate or Plate Heat Exchanger. The cold circuit is feedwater for steam generation.

In binary plants, a second, low-boiling-point fluid is pumped at fairly high pressure 34 bar (500 PSI) through the Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger, where it is vaporized and then directed through a turbine generator. The vapor exiting the turbine is then condensed within a second heat exchanger and cycled back through the first heat exchanger.
