Viking Heat Engines' CraftEngine technology generates energy from heat sources as low as 80 °C (176 °F). By using an automotive piston-type expander developed by AVL Schrick in Germany, the CraftEngine allows for reliable and flexible operation, low capital and maintenance costs and rapid return on investment.
The CraftEngine offers unprecedented flexibility, adapting easily and quickly to fluctuations in the supply of heat or the demand for electricity.
SuperBrix's TEO cyclonic furnace series have been recognised by the British Foreign Office, the UN and the Colombian Ministry for Development for supporting the move away from fossil fuels by using biomass for drying of rice.
The functionality of the TEOPOWER is simple: Rice husk is fed into the TEO cyclonic furnace where it is burned using combustion air. The hot flue gas transfers its heat to a hot water loop, which is used to run the CraftEngine and produce power. Any remaining heat can be used for drying.
