1) Nitrided steel (for Poseidon turbines; suitable for very high drop heights)
2) Stainless steel (for AGLAIA turbines; suitable for small to medium drop heights), as well as for use in drinking water power plants)
Pelton Turbines are suitable for use in power generation at high drop heights of up to over 1000m slope. This type of turbine can be very finely adjusted by designing the number of nozzles (water quantity divisible by up to 6) and the speed to take both the minimum and maximum water quantity to be expected into account. The efficiency is very high, since the turbine can be very precisely regulated switching the nozzles on and off, if the calculation and design are correct, and can thus be operated at the optimum operating level. Due to the specific case of the high drop heights, it is extremely important to pay special attention to the purity (desanding) of the turbine water. Even the finest particles in the water lead to enormous material abrasion (comparable to a grinding wheel) due to the high pressure and the energy converted into speed in the nozzles.
neromylos places special emphasis on the fact that each individual case is calculated and designed separately. Subsequent manufacturing on our most modern CNC machines guarantees the accuracy of the parts in the range of thousandths of a millimeter. Due to this special processing we are able to produce parts in recurring quality. This results in only minor corrections when the impeller is subsequently balanced. Here we do not use balancing weights, which could fall off over time, but determine the position and size of the holes on the computer-controlled balancing machine, which removes material where it is required and thus leads to the optimum balancing and concentricity result. Each impeller is provided with a balancing certificate and documented. The blades (17 to 25 pieces) are screwed onto our patented hub system by means of bolted connections and are secured positively and non-positively (against rotation). The advantage here, lies in the interchangeability of individual blades.
