Recover your process

FCC-EH hot gas expander

Don't lose the spare energy and residual gases from your nitric acid, PTA or FCC processes. Our FCC-EH hot gas expander allows you to make the most of the available power. 

  • Power output 5-40 MW
  • Radial and axial expanders
  • High efficiency 

Move towards carbon-neutrality and economic efficiency

Go for maximum power recovery

 

In many industrial processes such as the fluid catalytic cracking, lots of valuable energy and residual gases can simply go to waste. With the general drive towards carbon-neutrality and demands for ever greater economic efficiency, industrial machinery must run as resource-friendly as possible. 

The MAN Energy Solutions hot air expander has been designed especially for energy recovery. It lets you utilize the excess power or heat to drive separate power generation units or turbomachinery in power recovery trains, achieving maximum efficiency. 

Its robust, compact and economically optimized design sits at the heart of converting high-molecular-weight hydrocarbon fractions into more valuable products and can substantially contribute to cutting your business’s CO2 emissions. 

When it comes to maintenance, we have taken extra care to allow for easy access and maximum reliability, further cutting your operating costs. 

Matching your requirements, MAN Energy Solutions expanders come in single- and multi-stage designs and in axial or radial blade/impeller configurations. Our expanders are either connected to a power generator or directly integrated into a compressor train. 

Range covered: 

  • Power output up to 40 MW
  • Inlet temperature up to 760 °C (1,400 °F)
  • Inlet pressure up to 25 bar
