The AQUIKO Channel Penstocks are available in several forms, tailored to your requirements. The penstocks are manufactured in Stainless Steel 316L, making them lightweight for ease of handling and installation, without compromising strength.
The AQUIKO Channel Penstock comprises a sluice gate that seals on three sides of the channel in which is installed.
Channel Penstocks are available for wall mounting, either to a single face, or to channel walls, or for rebate ﬁxing (which requires grout). Even where grouted, installation remains a quick and simple process, using ﬁxings supplied.
Once installed, AQUIKO channel penstocks require very little attention, as greasing is not required in most cases, and the construction of the penstock gate is self-aligning, with no ﬁddly wedges, and an integrated EPDM seal.
The Channel Penstock is available as standard with either a single, central spindle or twin spindles to prevent crabbing or to reduce snagging of ﬂoating debris. In both cases, this can be replaced with rising spindles, rack and pinion drives, or hydraulics, and in all cases, the equipment can be manually driven, or electrically operated, along with automation if desired.
AQUIKO Channel Penstocks are built to match our customers specification. Please fill in the form with your requirements and we will get back to you.
