Square / rectangular
The MU penstock is available in rectangular or square shapes, and is suitable for wall and thimble mounting. It has a resilient sealing member applied to all four sides.
The MU series is mainly used in water treatment, irrigation, hydraulic works and hydro-electric power plants.
It is manufactured in accordance with AWWA 513-05, DIN 19569 and BS 7775 standards.
The MU model is suitable for linear actuation by either pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders; its frame design allows for easy mounting, either at medium height or floor level.
UHMWPE sliders for on- and off-seating heads, reduce the friction co-efficient during operation, minimising actuation thrust and extending the seal life.
Stems are made in AISI 303 stainless steel, and threaded in accordance with DIN 103 standards (available in AISI 316 on request).
Penstock sizes range from 200x200 to 2000x2000mm (as standard). Others are available on request.
The MC series of circular orifice penstocks is available in sizes from 200 to 600mm.
