TH 03.1 – Electric Brake Pelton Turbine

The TH 03.1 equipment simulates a small-scale installation with a Pelton turbine.


The turbine housing is transparent so that can be viewed as the turbine uses the inertia that transfers a water jet which propels the recoil principle.

Through various system indicators, you can view all the variables that come into play in transforming energy.

The braking system by electric brake allows working at different speeds in a simple and effective way.

The equipment is designed for the study and display both the behavior and the characteristics of a Pelton turbine.
