“Home of the Stream Engine™”
Buy directly from the inventor and manufacturer.
The LH 1000 uses the same generator as the Stream Engine, however the water turbine component uses a low head propeller design.
This enables the machine to produce power from heads of 0.5 metres (2 feet) up to 3 metres (10 feet).At the maximum head, the output is 1 Kw.
- Axial Flow Propeller Turbine
- Adjustable output Permanent Magnet Alternator
- Non-corrosive precision made parts.
- Operates on heads of 2′ -10′
- Explanatory manual and multi-meter included.
- Straightforward installation
- 1 year Warranty.
To gain enough head to operate the LH1000, water is channelled into a sluiceway. the turbine is mounted in a 18cm (7″) diameter opening in the sluice bottom, with the draft tube extending to the tailwater below.
The water turns the propeller, creating shaft power. This in turn powers the generator producing electricity. This machine is suited for sites that do not have much head (vertical drop) but have a lot of water (500-1000 gallons per minute).
The LH1000 can be specially wound to operate at 240 volts if necessary, employing an adjustable, permanent magnet generator and reconnectable wiring.
A low volume propeller is available which will use half the water and produce half the power for any given head.
