Kaplan turbine


This plant works with a Kaplan turbine. The breakdown was provoked because the fixing nut was loose and it caused the rupture. Consecuently, the conical bearings stopped working and the whole axial shipment was concentrated in the roller radial tread causing the breakdown, what meaned to loose the axis which ones felt into the aspiration tube. Auxiliars d'Explotacions Energètiques took care of the works to repare and conditioning the multiplier, the distributor, the turbine, the domo, the alternator and the hydraulic group. 

With the components repared the premounting was done to verify that all was working well and after that, the mounting of the plant was done, controlling the "galgaje" from each shovel and the impeller. To finish it the start-up was done.
