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 embedded 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.
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.
P130 PENSTOCK OR SLUICE GATE series are divided in different types depending on the installation and seal configuration. P311 model is reffered to a wall mounted design in 4-side seal, P312 shall be selected in case wall embedded design is required and P313 is designed to work in a 3-side seal configuration for open channels and embedded into concrete. 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.
Over time, PARAVALVES team has had the chance to analyze not only the design of these valves but the specific applications they are used in as well in a cost effectiveness mind. From waste water applications to Hydroelectric power plants, we’re confident the PARAVALVES P312 Wall Embedded 4-side seal Penstock or Sluice Gate will be a great solution for the following industries:
