Direct Steam GAS GENERATORS

CES’ direct steam gas generators, or gas generators (GGs) for short, provide a safe, reliable method for blended steam and CO2 production.

Also known as direct contact steam generators, CES GGs consists of three main parts: a burner, attemperator, and associated feed and controls systems. The GG burner utilizes platelet technology to intimately mix gaseous fuel with oxygen in the presence of water for stable, efficient combustion. Multiple attemperation chambers inject water to cool the resulting superheated, high-pressure steam and CO2, producing additional steam and controlling combustion chemistry. The attemperation section is extremely compact, spanning only about 6.5 feet, but is adaptable for different applications. Associated water, oxidizer, and fuel feeder systems are designed for the specific fuel qualities targeted in your project.
