Ethanol is an important industrial chemical. Ethanol is used as a solvent, in the synthesis of organic chemicals & also an additive to automotive gasoline (forming a mixture known as gasohol). ENA a Spirit very similar in composition to Ethanol is the intoxicating ingredient of many alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine & distilled spirits. ENA and Ethanol have completely different applications. ENA cannot be used for bleeding with automotive gasoline.

Why Ethanol Important

Ethanol is used to remove the carbon equivalent of 20 million cars from the road. Ethanol is used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40-45% compared to gasoline-even when hypothetical land-use change emissions are included.

Different types of Alcohol such as RS, IS and ENA very similar to Ethanol is used as a solvent in the manufacture of varnishes and perfumes, also used as a preservative for biological specimens; in the preparation of essences and flavorings; in medicines and drugs. Ethanol is a renewable, domestically produced transportation fuel. Ethanol is used in low-level blends, such as E10 (10% ethanol, 90% gasoline). E15 (10.5% to 15% ethanol), or E85 (flex fuel)- a gasoline-ethanol blend containing 51% to 83% ethanol depending on geography and season ethanol helps to reduce emissions.

To produce quality ethanol, Steam at a constant and stable temperature is required. Turtle Turbines manufactures Steam Turbines specifically designed for Ethanol plants and is the best solution available in the market to get reliable power generation. Besides reliable power, Turtle Turbines provide steam at the exhaust at much more constant and steady pressures than can be achieved through PRV. Turtle Turbines manufactures a full line of steam turbines with capacities ranging from 300 kW to 3000 kW.

Turtle Turbines create products that are suitable for both safe and hazardous areas. Our products are appropriate for both continuous essential and non-critical applications. The modular construction concept allows for the greatest degree of customization to meet the most stringent project specifications.
