The Steam Drive System
This is a unique opportunity to buy a fully assembled steam powered generator capable of generating 30KW electrical and 150KW thermal energy.

Max. operating pressure 60 bar

Nominal speed 1500rpm

A multi billion Euro German company, VOITH spent €30,000,000 developing the steam expander.

This system was purchased 6 months ago and is still new and has never been used.

The cost paid from Germany was €60,000.00. So to buy this system at £20,000 is a fantastic opportunity for any enthusiast or anyone wanting to create a huge amount of power using steam.


The heart of the system is the reciprocating expander. Steam is fed to the expander generating 30kw electrical and 150kw thermal. In the cylinders of the expander, the compressed vapor relaxes and sets the pistons in motion generating electricity from the electric motor. The steam is then fed into a heat exchanger situated below the expander, and pumped back into the water tank creating a closed loop system.

The system consists of

Expander (steam engine)
30kw electric motor
Condenser heat exchanger unit
Condenser heat exchanger pump
Oil filter
Oil heaters
Oil control valve
Oil pump (part of the expander)
Oil and water coalescer
