P|310 Series provide penstock solutions for many hydroelectric power applications.
At PARAVALVES, every product is carefully engineered as all the neccesary parameters are studied to develop our solid and reliable wall mounted penstocks.
Wall mounted Penstocks, also known as Sluice Gates, are made as a welded assembly construction and usually made for water applications for isolation or flow control services. The seal is done in all four sides of the gate and can work to seal in both directions (bi-directional design) as standard. Penstock design is performed so it can be embedded into concrete during commisioning or wall mounted.
The Penstock design is performed to comply with AWWA standards and can be manufactured in sizes up to 4000x4000mm and pressures up to 10mwc. A wide range of construction materials is applicable such as different carbon steels and stainless steels like SS304, SS304L, SS316, SS316L and DUPLEX or SUPERDUPLEX austenitic-ferritic stainless steel materials.
FRONTGATE FX4 MODEL PENSTOCK OR SLUICE GATE series are able to fit different mounting configurations such as wall mounted, wall embedded or even channel mounting design. In all cases, SPECIAL CUSTOM-MADE DESIGNS can be performed by PARAVALVES TEAM to comply with customer requirements. From squared, rectangular or circular section frames to risign, non-rising stem configurations, headstocks, stem extensions and many other accesories can be selected.
