Arman Energo is the official distributor of Capstone Turbine Corporation in the Russian Federation – the world leader in the production of innovative gas microturbines Capstone.
Since the beginning of 2000, due to its excellent technical parameters and characteristics, Capstone equipment has been constantly increasing the market share of autonomous energy sources in various sectors of the economy.
The engine of the unit consists of only one moving part – a rotating shaft. It has a coaxial electric generator, compressor and turbine wheel. The installation does not use additional mechanical drives such as gearboxes, coupling halves and other transmission mechanisms. An energy installation does not require the use of oil at all, which significantly reduces the cost of its maintenance. It happened because of use of unique gas-dynamic (air) bearings. Due to their special aerodynamic shape, the bearings support the rotor shaft of the unit in suspended non-contact state. This eliminates the need for lubrication, and also significantly reduces the risk of wear on engine parts. Also due to this, the shaft rotation speed can reach – 96 thousand revolutions per minute. At such high speed, the microturbine is characterized by a low noise level and a complete absence of vibrations. In addition, a small number of contacting parts ensures stable and long-term operation of all equipment, with a service life untill overhaul – up to 60 thousand hours.
• Simple design and the absence of rubbing parts, which provide high reliability; quick and easy installation, connection to fuel and electrical communications; the possibility of service and overhaul at the place of operation within 1 day. • Unique air bearings eliminating the need for engine oil, coolant and lubricants. • Low noise (up to 60 dB) and vibrations giving an opportunity to choose a location. • Periodic service every 8,000 hours, not more than 1 time per year. • Convenient system for remote monitoring and control of microturbine operation parameters via GSM modem. • Elasticity to loads, the ability to work in the load range from 0 to 100% without stops and a decrease in resource. • Consumption of a wide range of fuels, including those with unstable composition characteristics and a hydrogen sulfide content of up to 7%. • Continuity of work offline or in parallel with a centralized network. • Resource before overhaul – up to 60,000 hours. • High efficiency in the mode of cogeneration and trigeneration – up to 92%.
