Generally, there are three types of expanders, namely, low-pressure expander, medium pressure expander and liquid expander. For a certain type of gas expander, the greater the volume flow of working medium, the higher the efficiency. Generally, the efficiency of the low-pressure expander with a flow of more than 8000nm is 85 ∽ 88%, and the efficiency of the expander with a flow of less than 3000 ∽ 8000nm will be as low as 70 ∽ 80%.
Strictly speaking, the heat exchange system is designed with multi stream mixed media in the same heat exchanger, so that the heat transfer of each medium is automatically balanced and the energy consumption is the lowest. However, for the internal compression process, all heat exchangers will be high-pressure heat exchangers, which will increase the accumulation of investment.
