Control guide vanes in Kaplan turbines

Smooth turbine operation through precise control

The solution

By adapting the rotor blades to the water volume, the efficiency of Kaplan turbines is optimized. Balluff's magnetostrictive linear position sensors are directly integrated into the shaft for direct position monitoring at the impeller.

The features

  • Compact design for easy integration
  • Non-contact wear-free operation for long service life
  • Pressure-rated for installation inside hydraulic cylinders
  • Absolute position signal; no homing required after power interruption
  • Available for most popular control interfaces
