Mann Power Archimedes Screw Hydro Turbine
The Mann Power Archimedes Screw Hydro Turbine has been used for pumping water for over 2000 years. Applying the principle in reverse, the same equipment now offers a new method for generating power from water, providing a fish friendly and highly efficient alternative to a conventional turbine. Each Archimedean Screw hydropower system is manufactured to be site-specific, with a choice of three designs - steel trough, closed compact and open compact - depending on which is the most appropriate and cost-effective for each individual site.
*High overall efficiency, maintained across large flow variation
*Floating objects and debris simply pass through with no need for expensive fine screening
*Robust, simple machinery - low maintenance
*Design life: 25 - 40 years
*No complex control system required - speed is set automatically by the mains connection and the available flow
