Forster Hydroelectric Kaplan Turbine Generator Price for Low Head
Kaplan turbine and axial flow turbine generator unit is widely used for low water head such as small river, small dam, etc. The mini axial turbine generator is made by generator and Impeller coaxial.
Working principle and installation method: Choose suitable installation place ( riverside, rocky place of downstream river),use concrete and stone to build water channels; use wood to make a water gate; use barbed wire to make filter; use concrete and stone to make spiral case; build trumpet-style draft tube under the spiral case; the draft tube should be covered and under water 20-50m. The length of draft tube is the water head. The mini axial turbine generator is suitable for water head 3-12m.
The 320KW kaplan turbine ordered by a Brazilian customer has been produced.
The equipment was ordered early April 2020. At that time, China successfully controlled the the Covid 19. Due to the shutdown of most enterprises in the upstream supply chain, it brought huge challenges to our raw material supply, but Foster still completed the order one week in advance.
