SMART™ Turbine Seals
In a typical steam turbine, 50% of efficiency loss comes from seal clearance damage.
EthosEnergy solves the problem and virtually eliminates seal-related efficiency losses with our patented SMART™ retractable brush seal and brush tip seals.
Brush tip seals integrate a flexible, metallic brush element at the blade tip and are an upgrade to most existing blade tip seal configurations. The brush is flexible to compensate for rotor excursions during start-up, while maintaining a tight clearance during operation resulting in superior performance for steam turbines.
