If you think the initial savings are good, you'll think the ongoing savings are great!
The rising cost of gas-line fuel.
Harrison regenerators can help put a ceiling on it! They can even save you money before they go to work because installation is fast and economical. That's for openers... then you begin saving even more.
Saving substantially on operating costs. By recuperating a gas turbine's exhaust to preheat its intake air, a Harrison regenerator allows the turbine to use less fuel, more efficiently. As much as 30% less fuel with a regenerator of 80% air side effectiveness. Good initial savings, better ongoing savings: Two good reasons for giving us your facts and figures.
