Bulb Turbines

Bulb turbines can be considered an evolution of tubular Kaplan turbines, and their application is extremely relevant for low heads and high available flowrates. By inserting the generator inside the internal bulb of the turbine, the length of the axis line is reduced, and the necessary horizontal space is compacted. For proper operation, full mechanical/hydraulic/electrical interaction is required between the turbine, generator and other equipment.

Head:

3 to 15 m

Flowrate:

up to 150 m³/s

HACKER, once again, was the first Brazilian company to produce brazilian-made, direct-driven Bulb turbines, mastering all stages from the design, manufacturing and installation in numerous projects across the country. The partnership with Automatic and total control of the production chain allows Hacker to supply Bulb turbines with direct coupling (without speed multiplier) resulting in final performance far superior to similar solutions.

Bulb and Open-Pit turbines make excellent use of very low heads and are normally installed between 3 m and 15 m of head.
