Turbo expanders TFC was developed with a cold (cryogenic) compressor on the same shaft as well as an additional oil brake to extract energy from the process.
Turbo expander TFC allow a very flexible operation as the turbine power can be dissipated via an oil brake and an optional variable diffuser allows a wide range of compressor flows.
Industrial gas industry (air separation units) to provide refrigeration when a process cryogenic booster compressor is required with adjustable cold power provided by the oil brake.
Usual Gases Handled: air, nitrogen, waste gas from air with high oxygen content.
