PELTON TURBINES

Pelton Turbines produced by Flowmore are available with horizontal or vertical shaft and with multi jet mechanism which being controlled separately.
These Turbines are particularly suitable for exploiting plant conditions where there is low flow utilization as compared with the high head.
One of the most interesting aspects of Pelton Turbines is its flexibility in presence of marked changes in flow capacity. Each injector is also capable of regulating its own portion of flow capacity upto a certain limit, without creating any noticeable phenomena of load loss.
These Pelton Turbines are also equipped with deflectors which come between the rotor and water jet nozzles, in emergencies deviate the water flow and prevent the machine to go to runway speed.So overall we provide the Pelton Turbines which have a good service life with 70 to 90% efficiency, are available in ranges upto 20,000Kw Capacity.

CROSSFLOW

Crossflow Turbines manufactured by FLOWMORE are developed with improved design to give best efficiency. These turbines are used where low and medium heads and high flow is available.
Runners are made of stainless steel with high accuracy and precision which gives a sudden impact of water at the runner blades and gives high efficiency, which we claim. These Turbines are very rugged and simple design with flexibility to operate within a wide variation of flow.

We also provide when recommended, a self closing type inlet butterfly valve to avoid the runway speed of runner and also provide the vane mechanism controlled by panel so that it should not go beyond the over or under frequency. In case of any emergency first the vane shall close automatically due to provision of relays, and simultaneously, in certain cases the inlet butterfly valve also closes automatically. So we provide the atomized crossflow turbine with a high safety provision.
So overall we provide the crossflow turbines which have a good service life with 70 to 80% efficiency, are available in ranges upto 1,000 Kw Capacity.





FRANCIS TURBINES

Crossflow Turbines manufactured by FLOWMORE are developed with improved design to give best efficiency. These turbines are used where low and medium heads and high flow is available.
The Francis Turbines are mostly suitable for Hydro Power stations with medium and high head. The Francis type turbines manufactured by Ushivn-canyon hydro are compact in design, convenient in operation, easy in maintenance and excellent in efficiency.

Francis Turbines manufactured by Ushivn-canyon hydro system are available in MW capacities.
PRECISION MANUFACTURING OF USHVIN – CANYON HYDRO TURBINE COMPONENTS
Ushvin–Canyon Turbines are built for better performance and higher efficiency, much of this superior performance comes from Flowmore's investment in advanced Technology for Design and Manufacturing.
The process begins at canyon Hydro with CAD design and solid modeling, followed by extensive fine tuning using tools like Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA). These advanced tools make it possible to know exactly how a turbine will perform before manufacturing begins.
But a well-tuned computer model is only the beginning. Unless every complex curve is precisely replicated in steel, the turbine will not perform as well as the model. Today's sophisticated designs require new manufacturing techniques to ensure accuracy.
That's why Canyon - Hydro has made significant investments in computer-controlled manufacturing technology. From breakthrough casting techniques to CNC machining, these advancements deliver the best possible real-world performance.
The design procedure received from Canyon - Hydro is repeated by Flowmore engineers on Computers to bring it in line with Indian site parameters, if necessary.
Like Canyon – Hydro, Flowmore has also made heavy investments in a series of high-precision, Ultra-Modern 'Computer-aided electronic CNC Multi-Axis Machining Centres' (picture above) for precise machining of components as per drawing.





  • he cylindrical stainless steel runner of Cross-flow turbines, is fabricated with high precision. The intermediate discs are laser- cuton computer-aided CNC machines with clearly defined blade positions.
  • Similarly, like Canyon - Hydro, Flowmore uses computer-aided modeling to fine tune turbine volutes and runners for maximum efficiency. Computer-controlled pattern-making & manufacturing processes are used to replicate the Francis runner in stainless steel as also the Pelton wheel buckets as per drawing.

SYSTEM DESIGN TO MEET CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS
Flowmore group offers complete services from concept to commissioning in active cooperation with owners & Consultants, for setting up highly successful & economical hydro power station up to multi mega watt capacity.
The heart of hydro system is the turbine, where power is extracted from water and efficiency is critical, because every small gain – or loss – directly affects the economy.

Fact that each turbine is custom – designed for the specific site resulting in optimum water – to – wire efficiency. Runners for critical applications are designed on case to case basis,. Turbines are matched with generators to ensure optimum integration and efficiency. Generators are carefully selected and sourced from reputed manufactures to match the standards of hydro electric power generation. Controls and switchgears are designed to meet specific project needs.

Basically the complete plant is designed as per specific requirements of customers, depending on the site condition on tailor made basis.

MODERNISATION OF EXISTING POWER STATIONS

Flowmore Group reputation is based on excellent engineering for manufacturing, erection-commissioning and modernization or renovation of the Hydro Power Plants. Owing to practical experience of Ushvin – Canyon Hydro in the Hydro Power Industry, Ushvin Canyon is ideally placed to offer client its customized solutions for renovation, modernization and up-rating of existing Hydro Power Plants.

Existing Power Stations with conventional Hydraulic /Mechanical Governors being frequent cause for interruption of power generation now can be modernized with "Ushvin Digital Electronic Governors". Protection release and instrumentation in existing panels may be utilized as such (if in satisfactory condition).

These activities also cover main equipments i.e. Turbines, Generators, C & I equipments and other plant equipment essential for efficient and sustained performance of the power units. The reasonably low cost incurred would be recovered in no time through trouble-free continues and increase power generation. Operators with much less skill and experience would be able to operate the power station.
