A unique high performance hydroelectric power generator combined with pressure or flow control capability.
The difgen® functions as a pressure reducing valve (PRV) for use in water supply networks, whilst providing the added benefit of generating electricity.
It comprises a turbine, generator and control system. A full specification sheet can be found here.
Energy wastage from using PRVs.
When compared to a standard PRV, the difgen® has a proven track record in modulating pressure and flow to a greater definition, while generating electricity which can be exported to the grid. This improves energy efficiency by harvesting the energy wasted today with conventional PRVs – but without any impact on the primary job of delivering water safely and reliably.
The difgen® represents a cost-effective replacement or alternative for PRVs in all types of systems where pressure control and management are vital, while effectively curbing energy costs. It will fit many applications where a PRV is already installed.
Therefore, we believe the difgen® is the best choice when it comes to helping to meet your key requirements by providing a fully engineered solution to pressure and flow management combined with energy recovery.
