Types

There are two main types of expansion turbines: axial flow and radial flow. Axial flow expansion turbines are like conventional steam turbines. They may be single-stage or multistage with impulse or reaction blading, or some combination of the two. Turbines of this type are used as power recovery turbines. They are used where flow rates, inlet temperatures, or total energy drops are very high.

Radial-flow expansion turbines are normally single-stage, with combination impulse reaction blades and a rotor resembling a centrifugal semi-open compressor impeller. Radial-flow expansion turbines are used primarily for low temperature service, but they may also be used to recover power.
