WATER TURBINE: Hydro Electric
This very robust water turbine performs extremely well when pressure is high but also works satisfactorily with low water pressure. Overall dimension: 270 x 240 x 170mm high. A brass chromed water wheel is mounted in a cast aluminium casing about 100mm dia. The water turbine housing has an acrylic widow providing a clear view of the internal working parts. The water turbine is mounted on a metal base together with a dynamo, motor, lamp and a two-way selection switch for switching between them. Two additional 4mm terminals are provided for supplying power to other items such as an electric bell or buzzer. The water turbine is very efficient and drives the dynamo which, in turn, powers the motor at low water pressure – about 7-metres of water head. The water turbine is also used to demonstrate energy conversion – water to electricity.
