Salt Water Flow Battery Alternative to Capstone Turbine

The Salgenx S3000 stores 3MW of energy with less footprint than the Capstone Turbine C1000

Salt Water Battery Technology as Alternative to Capstone Turbines and Microturbine Technology

Are you interested in alternatives to Capstone Turbines ?Large storage batteries may be the answer, especially for greenhouses and other electrical and thermal storage needs.

At $600,000 for a Salgenx 3,000 kW (3MW) battery, it is much less expensive ( Capstone 1,000 kW is around $1.5 million so a 3MW is 3 x 1.5 = $4.5 million ) and has thermal storage capacities as well. Price includes charge controller and inverter.

Salgenx (division of Infinity Turbine LLC) has developed a revolutionary saltwater flow battery which also acts as a thermal battery.

Lower cost and faster access compared to Tesla Megapack which may take two years to deliver.

Does not use any Lithium, Vanadium, or a membrane.

Using a CO2 heat pump, you can double down on the payback for this new concept of a battery which stores heat as well as power.

When combined with a ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) turbine, this concept is further extended to produce power, especially at oil and gas wells which have geothermal heated brine producer water. Imagine storing power at the oil well, to use to power the downhole pumps.

Grid based rate arbitrage for purchasing power during off-peak times, then using power during on-peak daylight times to save money.

Global Energy is working with Infinity Turbine:

ORC Waste Heat Turbine and ORC System Build Plans: All turbine plans are $10,000 each. This allows you to build a system and then consider licensing for production after you have completed and tested a unit.

Redox Flow Battery Technology: With the advent of the new USA tax credits for producing and selling batteries ($35/kW) we are focussing on a simple flow battery using shipping containers as the modular electrolyte storage units with tax credits up to $210,000 per system.

Our main focus is on the salt battery. This battery can be used for both thermal and electrical storage applications.

We call it the Cogeneration Battery or Cogen Battery.

One project is converting salt (brine) based water conditioners to simultaneously produce power.

In addition, there are many opportunities to extract Lithium from brine (salt lakes, groundwater, and producer water).

Salt water or brine are huge sources for lithium. Most of the worlds lithium is acquired from a brine source. It's even in seawater in a low concentration. Brine is also a byproduct of huge powerplants, which can now use that as an electrolyte and a huge flow battery (which allows storage at the source).

Introducing Salgenx the Saltwater Battery to feature many of the above functions.

We welcome any business and equipment inquiries, as well as licensing our turbines for manufacturing.

Global Energy shipping container lumber dry kiln from 1991

Global Energy Container Kiln Plans

Global Energy designed and developed the container kiln back in 1991. The purpose is to give access to portable sawmill owners, furniture makers, and small business the value added profit of dry kiln lumber and quality hardwoods.

With the advent of huge price spikes in 2020 in lumber and kiln-dried lumber, we are now offering plans for our epic container dry kiln system, which we developed in 1991. The system has been copied by lots of groups over the past 30 years (validating its profitability and access to the small commercial sawmill proprietors).

This kiln concept is now all over the world. We offer the plans at a low price to cover the website costs.

Periodically, we’ll up date the News, with new innovations and improvements to the industry.

The most recent addition is the Vacuum kiln, which can reduce drying time down to 3 days.

Wood Waste Direct Fired into Heat Pipe High Temperature Kiln Heat Source

Firewood Container Dry Kiln and Wood Heat for Drying

The firewood container kiln consists of one or two 40 foot high-cube aluminum shipping containers side by side, or two refrigerated vans (already insulated).

These can be HT (or high temperature) kiln type design since you want to dry the wood (cracking is fine) as fast as possible.

We recommend a direct fired heat pipe (Furnace Type Dry Kiln), Conifer sawdust burner, or Central Boiler which can use your wood waste as the heat source.

The benefits of KD (kiln dried) firewood is reduced drying time, increased customer satisfaction, less creosote when burning, and higher revenue from sales. This allows you to dry into heating season, when other firewood suppliers have run out of inventory.

Shipping containers and vans make perfect crypto miner facilities, since they are watertight and modular

Repurposing Shipping Containers and Refrigerated Vans for Modular Crypto Miners:

Containers and vans have been used successfully in shipping since 1954 around the world. They are used in all environments from deserts to the arctic. When they fall off of ships, they can float for literally years.

Containers which have been used for many years, get cycled off of ships and get sold. Prices range from $800 for a 20 ft. container to $2,500 for a 40 ft. container. They make perfect crypto miner facilities, since they are watertight. Parts are readily available since there are somewhere between 5-170 million of these around the world.

Watertight: the doors on containers come with replaceable rubber gaskets which gives them an airtight seal.

No Foundation Required: Containers are meant to be stacked up to 10-15 high, which means they are very rugged on the bottom and four corners of the container. They can be placed on gravel, pavement, a concrete pad, or even simple timbers or railroad ties. Because they do not require a foundation, a great deal of money and site preparation time can be saved.

Durability: Steel or Aluminum skinned containers work perfect as miner facilities. The end posts on containers are made from very thick steel. The walls and top are made from 1/8 inch steel or aluminum sheets. Every 12 to 16 inches are U or C channel stock which provides support for the skin. The bottom of the container is made up of I-beams. A wooden floor of Paudak wood or plywood, which covers the I-beams.

Longevity: While the useful life of a container may be limited for shipping, they make perfect modular buildings. Containers can be moved by using a undercarriage or cranes, which may get expensive. A better option for portable miner facilities are over-the-road insulated vans, which have a undercarriage.

Versatility: Containers can be stacked vertically, or placed side-by-side.

Roof Mounted Options: The flat roofs allow installation of solar panels and heat exchangers to dissipate heat in night-time or colder climate locations.

Advanced HVAC Cooling: Infinity offers solutions for utilizing the waste heat to make power and cooling. Our innovative solutions allow waste heat to make cool flows to cool miners and make mining more efficient.

Crypto Miner Shaft Plans: Infinity has developed plans to convert shipping containers or vans for modular racks, including power diagrams, and cooling solutions. Our plans give you the best long term modular solutions which allow you to add miners when needed, with one strategy which is energy efficient and gives you the advantage over other miners.

Summary: Shipping containers and refrigerated vans make great modular miner facilities. Hi-cube containers offer more flexibility for top mounted fan racks and interior space utilization. Insulated containers can save you time insulating the chambers. Over-the-road insulated vans offer you mobility and ready-to-deploy solutions.

DIY Vacuum Pump for Building a Vacuum Dry Kiln for Logs, Lumber, Poles, Firewood, and more

Vacuum Kiln for Fast Drying Fresh Cut Lumber in 3 Days

Infinity Turbine with Global Energy are developing DIY plans and kits for kiln vacuum drying lumber. I invented the Global Container Kiln back in 1990 by converting standard shipping containers into dry kilns for the small sawmills. Infinity Turbine has specialized in developing simple pressure vessels and systems with it's renewable waste heat turbine generators back in 2008, and has extensive experience in pressure vessels. It's a natural fit.

Why a vacuum kiln ? Lumber prices are crazy. Homebuilders cannot find quality lumber (supplies are limited), and have turned to buying a port)able sawmill, which produces green lumber. For building, that lumber needs to be dried. This is also true for cabinet makers, and other wood craft business.

Our container kiln was a standard dry kiln and could KD (kiln dry) hardwoods in 30 days. That's too long for most.

A vacuum kiln is the answer. Smaller chambers can dry in 3 days or less.

Best of all, you can convert your conventional kiln to a vacuum kiln.

Stranded Gas to Power, Heated Fluid, and Refrigeration

Oil Producers Use your stranded gas heat to generate power, hot water, and refrigeration

Producing oil and flaring gas ? Need to use that heat for something for local or Federal regulations ?

We may have the perfect solution.

A. Solid State Power: Using Thermoelectric Devices (or Thermoelectric Generators TEG), we can convert heat into DC power. That is put through a inverter for 3-phase AC power which you can use directly. These energy harvesters take heat and make power, without any moving parts. Up to 12 percent efficiency and up to 800C heat available (higher temperatures = more cost).

B. Hot Water: Using heat exchangers, convert flare gas or hot producer water to a liquid for use of heat, or cooling.

C. Absorption Chillers: Absorption chillers are often exhaust fired using thermal energy recovered from

D. Zeolites: Zeolites give you the option of 24 hour liquid heating for cooking, water sterilization, or small amounts of hot water for heat. They can be recharged using the heat from your flare gas. The primary advantage of using Zeolites is the ability to have long term latent heat storage, which can be used any time of the day. Zeolites need to be stored in airtight and watertight containers. Zeolites can be recharged with the latent heat using any heat source between 130-250

E. Gas Turbine: The most efficient (up to 29 percent) use of your stranded gas is via a Capstone Turbine with power from 65 kW to 1,000 kW modules, that can be stacked together.

F. Salt Water Flow Battery: Use a flow battery to store both electricity and heat while utilizing your well as a battery.
