Geothermal System (USA)
The Power Tube Argus is a GEOMAGMATIC device that differs from a standard geothermal system in that it does not need water, steam or steam pressure to operate. It uses only the heat of the Earth and low to medium temperature heat, 110-200 C. The Argus units are designed for the 1-5 and 10 Megawatt market. The installation consists of mostly a down-hole system with a very small surface footprint. Argus operates with a heat exchanger and in addition can also work with a thermal riser. The thermal riser option is used when the required temperatures are further down than the total length of the power plant itself. The thermal riser contains a biodegradable, synthetic, heat exchange fluid that circulates through its coaxial, flexible system which transfers the heat found at lower temperatures into the heat exchanger at the base of the installation. Power Tube Argus units are designed to be minimal maintenance units. The maintenance is performed by a remote supervisory center via satellite. The system is designed so that the supervising controller can adjust (tweak) the settings of the on-board programmable logic controller (PLC) as needed. If needed, a local technician can be dispatched.
