Improving the reliability and efficiency of Kaplan Turbines for Hydropower with Engineered Polymer Seals

As one of the world’s cleanest sources of electricity, hydropower is an important part of the renewable energy mix.

Ensuring the right sealing solutions can help reduce any leakage of water or oil and address environmental concerns about operations at hydroelectric power plants.

Engineered polymer seals can provide a more effective seal with properties that deliver major benefits back to hydropower operators, including less unplanned downtime and faster maintenance schedules. Maximising the efficiency and reliability of the performance and operation of turbines at hydroelectric power plants is crucial to hydropower remaining an environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution.
