PAR Penstocks are used in both municipal and industrial waste water treatment plants to isolate a piece of equipment or a parts of a plant.
OpisPAR Penstocks mainly consist of a steel frame, a steel gate, a neoprene sealing system sliding inside the frame, a stem, and a manual drive system complete with control wheel.
PAR Penstocks are regularly used for a number of operations in both municipal and industrial waste water treatment plants.
Generally they serve the purpose of:
- Isolating a piece of equipment;
- Shutting off a whole part of a plant;
- Controlling water level and / or flow rates.
PAR Penstocks are fitted into walls (to close circular, square or rectangular openings/windows) or into channels (with frame enclosed in the concrete).
In case of large gate sizes PAR Penstocks are usually equipped with a gear reduction unit complete with electric actuator.
