Power wheels, the overshot in particular, benefits from several often overlooked design features. Operational reliability and ruggedness are very high in a practical installation, the overshot tolerates heavily silted waters, flood debris, rocks, rubbish and outright vandalism. The high rotational inertia and increased static torque create a self cleaning mechanism that breaks tangled fishing lines and carrier bags. Fish and all aquatic life are completely unaffected and water quality may be slightly improved.
The overshot and midshot wheels are very much more efficient than often stated, indeed the overshot is the most efficient energy extractor for limited applications. We make hese to any size; Our Ultra Ultra low head midshots operate in impossibly low head situations finding great favour with utilities and agencies for continuous small or transient high power demands.
We have solutions to address the specific needs applicable to domestic, water, communications and environmental management. Our special purpose team can engineer power solutions for all load demands, try our team of hardened optimists before giving up on your project ! 01525 874226
