Hydro Turbines Kaplan
What makes the Kaplan turbine special is its extremely high efficiency. It also offers a wide range of possible applications. This high level of flexibility is made possible by the runner blades’ and guide vanes’ double regulation. It is especially suitable for large water volumes and low net heads and can therefore also be used in run-of-the-river power plants on larger rivers.
GLOBAL Hydro offers different versions of Kaplan turbines: as spiral, pit, split and pipe turbines.
Equipped with three, four, five or six blades, GLOBAL Hydro optimally adjusts them to your particular requirements.
Kaplan spiral turbine is commonly used for relatively higher net heads. Depending on requirements, GLOBAL Hydro manufactures the spiral case from steel or concrete
GLOBAL Hydro designs the inlet area of the Kaplan pit turbine with concrete. This version is usually used in large run-of-the-river power plants and always supplied as a vertically installed version
Without a doubt the most versatile of all Kaplan turbines is Kaplan pipe turbine. This turbine type is usually installed horizontally but vertical solutions are also available when required.
