Research And Development For ORC-Top Products
Demanding substance models, thermal state equations, flow mechanics of working media or the solving of construction problems - GMK has extraordinarily educated scientific employees to develop optimal organic rankine cycle-processes for every application. Next to GMK's team there are the other professional teams of the Germania companies with experienced engineers and the needed production know how, to guarantee a fabrication of organic rankine cycle-main components, like the condenser, recuperator and the evaporator on a high quality level.

We are aware of the fact, that products can only be successful on the market if they persuade by innovation, efficiency and technological perfection.
Simulation And Flow Mechanics
Prior to the approval of ORC-product drawings, the function of the ORC-components regarding the perfect exchange of heat, the pressure resistance and the flow properties are tested by FEM or flow simulations and optimized in certain cases.
Latest ORC-working mediums
Highest efficiency and environmental friendliness in one: Our ORC-working mediums can be individually designed for the product lines INDUCAL-waste heat recovery, GEOCAL-geothermal heat and ECOCAL-biomass. For the ORC-mediums GL 160 and WL 220 patent rights had been accomplished.
Innovative linking of SPS and measurement electronics enable the fully automated, handling of our ORC-systems as also a remote control from every point of the world.
ORC 3D Product design
Because of the low temperatures and pressures in the ORC only small energy densities are being moved. Therefore enormous surfaces for the heat transfer in such ORC-systems have to be fitted into smallest spaces. Because of this fact in one component, the recuperator of a 1,000 kW ORC-plant 50,000 m (fifty thousand) pipes are used. The construction of such complex ORC-components can only be carried out with latest 3D-CAD-systems.
Power plant technology is high pressure vessel production which stands for precision and a high degree of security. To also meet this demand in the production, our fabrication, like our products, is in a continuous improvement process. Therefore next to the production in Chemnitz a robotic production for heat exchangers is under current construction in Bargeshagen.
Practical tests are used to improve theoretical conclusions or answer theoretical questions, which are hard to solve. GMK owns a test facility where different temperature windows for ORC-devices can be simulated. In addition to a laboratory and test capacities, GMK has ORC-power plants that are run in operating companies as test devices.
