Our Products - Pelton Turbines
Generally Pelton Turbines are used when there is a high head of water, 50-1000 meters. A Pelton turbine is a impulse turbine. It consists of a Pelton Wheel which is impinged upon by a jet or multiple jets of water. The Pelton Wheel is mounted directly onto the generator and rotates in a casing which has no pressure of water and is open to atmospheric pressure. The jet or jets of water emanate from spear valves which are similar in design to a large needle valve.
Newmills Engineering manufactures 1 & 2 jet horizontal Pelton turbines and 4-6 jet vertical machines. Generator output can be 5KW to 20MW.
