In-Pipe Turbine Generator (IPTG) Video – How it works…
In an effort to provide low maintenance and “green” electricity to those isolated locations without commercial power access, Lightning Master has developed the innovative In-Pipe Turbine Generator (IPTG).
A cutting edge product, this solution was designed to ensure safety with minimal maintenance and minimal negative environmental impact as it generates power without combustion of fossil fuels.
The In-Pipe Turbine Generator is an electric generator contained in a two-foot section of 6″ stainless steel pipe. It harvests energy by using the natural flow of gas within the pipe to rotate a turbine and produce electric current in coils mounted around its exterior. The generator is designed to generate power 24hr a day with an option for 12, 24 or 48 volt output.
Sites using Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems can effortlessly monitor the IPTG system. To ensure the device operates efficiently, it is built to last with 316 stainless steel. It’s approximately 300 pounds and does not compromise the structural integrity of the pipe.
The In-Pipe Turbine alleviates the expense issue of power access in remote locations:
- It can’t be stolen
- Other equipment can be run off of the unit
- The IPTG is ideal for battery charging
- Free electricity when well is running
- Units can be run in a series to produce more power
