Our turbines are of conventional ‘mixed flow turbine’ design, in which energy is imparted to the flow by impellers utilizing the dual components of centrifugal force and vane reaction, an efficient arrangement for pumping at medium to high heads.
Turbine pumps can be angled for dams and rivers or vertical for use as bore pumps. These pumps have a range of flow rates from 5L/s per second to 1600L/s and the output of any pump may be varied, within limits, by changing rotational speed, in which case impeller performance curves should be consulted to ensure performance will remain within an acceptable efficiency range.
The Irribiz team can help you find the right pump as selection will depend on a number of factors including:
- The water source
- Proposed location of the pump
- Power/Fuel requirement
- Head requirements and
- Flow rate
