IT XR Turbine

The IT XR 6 inch diameter turbine is an experimental turbine designed for small scale power production for the home or low power applications (IT10 1-10 kW).

Project Goals: Make turbine fabrication simple by 3D printing a one part turbine with perimeter bearings and back mounted magnetic coupling for generator coil or exterior shaft drive or motor generator.

Common Shaft Drive: The magnetic coupler is bored into the rotor assembly, which allows coil power generation, or a magnetic follower disc for touchless shaft drive, or exterior motor generator options.

Working Fluid: R-245fa, R-134, Compressed Air, pressurized water, and a Stainless Steel version with CO2.

Rapid-Configuration: This assembly allows you to quickly configure turbines and test various working fluids and heat sources. The basic design is for 300 psi or less.

Magnetic Coupling or Large Diameter Gruvlok Pipe Housing Assembly: The unique design has a basic 6 inch diameter which allows for direct-to-motor generator mounting or magnetic coupling and follower, which allows you to have a generator or drive unit mounted exterior.

Plans and licensing available.

We've fabricated hundreds of magnetic couplers, and have found them to be very useful for sealing in ORC turbines, while providing cooling and exterior shaft drive or generator options. The strength of the magnetic field (magnet strength, distance from coupler, and thickness of separation block wall) must be considered when using high torque applications.
