Heat-Treatment Quenching Oil's Waste Heat ORC System
TPI’s 20kW Quenching Oil’s Waste Heat ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) System in Zhongli Plant is officially operated on December 30, 2014. This system is mainly based on the project of Bureau of Energy – “Low-Temperature Thermoelectric System and Waste Heat Harvesting Technology”. Screw-expander ORC technology is used from this project, to generate electricity from quenching process in heat treatment. This not only increases energy efficiency but also reduces the cost and greenhouse gas emission. It is expected to generate 182 MWh/year and to reduce 113 metric tons of carbon that builds the positive image of social welfare and environmental protection for TPI.
