Hydro Turbine HORIZONTAL PELTON

Download Catalog

Lester Pelton invented the Pelton turbine in 1878, following the California Gold Rush. Having witnessed miners using inefficient water wheels for energy, Lester Pelton was inspired to design a better turbine. Mavel’s Pelton turbine is suitable for high heads and lower flow rates. Jets (1-6) direct water at extremely high velocity at the turbine buckets, which cause the turbine to spin. Mavel’s Pelton turbines are designed for hydroelectric plants with heads ranging between 50 and 1000 meters. Each Pelton runner is customized and can be configured either vertically or horizontally. The runners are milled from a single block of steel. Mavel’s Pelton turbines are installed at projects in Europe, Asia, and North America.

  • Pelton turbines are preferred when the available water source has relatively high hydraulic head and low flow rates

  • Mavel’s Pelton turbines are designed for hydroelectric plants with heads ranging between 50 and 1000 meters

  • The runners are milled from a single block of steel

  • 1, 2 or 3 jets on the horizontal
