Rentricity is unique and offers the most cost-effective approach to transparently applying In-conduit hydropower equipment into solid pipe infrastructure to manage pressure and recover clean energy. The Company has focused solely on In-conduit hydropower since inception in 2003, conducting extensive research, incubating the Company at New York University’s first cleantech Incubator, now called the Urban Future Lab, and commencing commercial operation in 2012 with an exclusive NSF-certified equipment offering from the Cornell Pump Company with a 60-plus year operating history.
After graduating from the Urban Future Lab, Rentricity has assessed over 100 water applications in drinking water, irrigation and other industrial process water operations. The Company has installed over 26 Flow-to-Wire systems generating over 1.3MW of clean energy per year. Rentricity has applied its Flow-to-Wire system to every possible flow controlled or pressure management operation found in solid pipe water infrastructure. In addition, Rentricity has created pre-fabricated energy Recovery vault designs for new infrastructure projects making above and below ground vaults “energy recovery ready.”
The Sole-Source Rentricity NSF-Edge: Certified Flow-to-Wire Pump-as-Turbine Systems
Rentricity and the Cornell Pump Company (Cornell) have worked together since 2012 to provide the highest level of safety certification for its hydro-turbine product line (link to press release). This exclusive partnership established Rentricity as the global sole-source provider of NSF 61/372 Pump-as-Turbines (PAT) for In-Conduit Hydropower application manufactured in the United States by the Cornell Pump Company.
The National Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) prohibits the use of any in-pipe device that is not lead free (less than 8 percent lead). Congress amended the SDWA in 1996 requiring that water-facing components meet lead-leaching performance standards of the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). NSF/ANSI Standard 61 has since been adopted by 49 states and Canada.
The Water Quality Association certification and recognition marks an important milestone for Rentricity and Cornell , both committed to assuring safety and quality for Owner/Client who apply our clean energy recovery in-conduit hydropower solutions. The NSF/ANSI standard was awarded following stringent and extensive qualification of requirements for the control of potential human health effects from products that contact consumable drinking water, food & beverage and pharmaceutical applications.
