The Total Flow Generator (TFG) is mobile and scalable for commercial applications, powered by patent-pending technologies used to capture waste pressure from almost any geothermal or industrial source and transform it into fuel-free, emission-free electricity.

The energy produced, coupled with its relatively low cost versus solar and wind solutions, delivers one of the quickest and largest ROIs in the renewable energy industry. The scalability means companies can stack several TFGs together to meet their specific needs, based on temperatures, flows and PSI.

Here are just a few more advantages to the Total Flow Generator:

  • Lower Capital Requirements: The installed capital cost of the Total Flow Generator is significantly less than competitive green energy solutions (subsidy-free CAPEX payback is typically 1-3 years). Our design modifies readily available off-the-shelf components to keep CAPEX requirements to a fraction of what is needed for a turbine installation. 
  • Lower capital costs allow any business or government agency to scale its investment and better match year-round flows and pressures. No longer is a producer tied to a massive turbine budget and installation necessary to support such an investment. 
  • Lower Operating Costs: Total Flow Generator operating costs are estimated to be less than 1/4¢ per kilowatt, which is significantly lower than turbines. In fact, the only routine maintenance is a bearing inspection and replacement if necessary, for every 50,000 hours of operation.
  • Lower Maintenance Costs: We’ve eliminated the maintenance costs of the oiling system, and our energy conversion engine will run trouble-free for countless hours, providing extremely low maintenance and operational costs and with significant advantages in durability and for handling contaminants
  • Operating Efficiencies: Helical screw technology has a proven track record spanning millions of hours of operation at tens of thousands of installations worldwide. The Total Flow Generator runs at 1/10 the speed of turbines for longer service runs and was designed without the need for heat exchangers or organic mediums to transfer energy. The result? Operating efficiencies in excess of 60% have routinely been achieved.
  • No Filtration Required: Turbines are traditionally very susceptible to contamination due to their high speeds, low tolerances and delicate fin design. The TFG does not suffer from these limitations – its patented internal coating and its power-generating screws can handle a broader range of gases and fluids with contaminants that would damage a turbine in many situations 
  • Variable Pressure & Flow Rates: The Total Flow Generator has the ability to: handle fluctuations in temperature, flow and pressure with no adverse effects on the equipment. Although power production efficiency is directly tied to pressure and flows, the TFG easily handles fluctuations with no adverse impact. 
  • Base Load Green Power: One of the challenges facing the expansion of green energy production is the number of methods providing intermittent power production and the need of utilities to maintain adequate base load capabilities. The Total Flow Generator operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, generating green power capable of fulfilling green energy mandates while increasing base load production capabilities
  • Distributed Power: An additional key advantage to the Total Flow Generator is the ability to enhance the grid with distributed power production for those producers who see the advantage of less centralized power production and a more distributed model. No longer is capital investment the driving force of designing your production. 
  • Redundancy Capability: Lower capital investment and the Total Flow Generator’s modular and compact design allow for the ability to create parallel, expandable and redundant power generation capabilities on a distributed basis. On those sites with sufficient flows and pressures to warrant multiple units, multiple units could be deployed for power outputs up to 100 MW and beyond. 

Remote Monitoring: The Total Flow Generator’s remote monitoring and control capability gives operators improved visibility concerning the status of their operations, along with a better ability to control pressures and flows. All units feature SCADA-capable monitoring and control systems.

Solar $9,000/kW 20 Years 20 Years .38 to .53 There are only 3.6 hours of peak sunlight per day
Wind $4,000 to $6,000/kW 20 Years 20 Years 7.5 Installed cost per kW figures are somewhat misleading because of the low capacity factor of wind turbines ( i.e. the ratio of actual energy produced by a power plant to energy that would be produced if it operated at a rated capacity for an entire year)
