Swirl at the Inlet and Nucleation Enhancement Results in Increased Separation Efficiency

Generating swirl at the inlet results in increased dwell time of the gas. The use of a partial expansion prior to the expansion of the separation nozzle, causes condensation into molecular clusters, resulting in larger droplet size and mass difference of the condensate. Larger more massive condensate results in an increased separation factor when exposed to the centrifugal forces generated by the curved nozzle.


Technological Breakthrough in Gas Separation

Tenoroc has developed patented nozzles that separate gases, and have transformative use in multiple energy sectors. Although Tenoroc’s technology is classified as "Clean Technology", it was not developed to replace polluting technologies, and does not rely upon tax incentives for feasibility. For example, these nozzles can be used to make use of vast natural gas reserves which are unviable using today’s cleansing technology, or as part of a system for generating enormous quantities of electric power without the need for additional fuel by making use of massive amounts and sources of waste heat.

Electric Power from Waste Heat

Over 75 billion dollars per year in profits from electricity generated through existing waste heat sources is available to the US, according to some studies. No additional fuel is necessary to generate this power, meaning the savings in carbon dioxide emissions range in the hundreds of millions of metric tons per year.

Natural Gas Cleansing

Part of Tenoroc's development effort has been directed toward the condensation based separation of carbon dioxide from methane (natural gas) to create a means to capitalize on the vast natural gas reserves deemed too contaminated with carbon dioxide and/or hydrogen sulfide to be economically viable.

Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Game Changer

(patent pending)
Tenoroc's patented Aerodynamic Separation Nozzle seems poised to do what has long been the wish of refrigeration engineers, namely to simultaneously expand the refrigerant while separating its liquid and gaseous phases. Further enhancing this opportunity is that the industry is undergoing a self- examination due to the phase out deadline on ozone depleting refrigerants as well as a need for better energy efficiency motivated by the rising cost of power.

Development And Prototype

Tenoroc researchers have worked with a two-component mixture of nitrogen and carbon dioxide as well as carbon dioxide as a single component gas to aid in developing the separation nozzle design in a laboratory facility.
