Pelton turbine - sturdy and long-lasting.

Did you know that - due to their functioning principle - Pelton turbines are also referred to as impulse turbines? It utilises the water's kinetic energy and visually reminds one of a classic water wheel.

Lester Pelton patented the turbine named after himself in 1880. Pelton turbines are excellently suited for very high net heads and relatively low water flows. It can be regulated easily and guarantees optimum degrees of efficiency in partial load operation.

Proven GLOBAL Hydro quality

Due to the high net heads, the runner is subjected to extremely high stresses. This is why GLOBAL Hydro machines each runner from a single forged block consisting of premium alloys. Thus, GLOBAL Hydro provides a long-lasting, high-quality product.
