ED&S Stream Engine Hydro (Turgo)
Cat. No. AEE-17.324

The Stream Engine employs a brushless, permanent magnet alternator which is adjustable, enabling the user to match turbine output to the electrical load. It has higher efficiency than previous alternators, and is capable of outputs over 1 kilowatt (kW). All Stream Engines are equipped with a rugged bronze turgo wheel, universal nozzles (adaptable to sizing from 3 mm (1/8 inch) to 25 mm (1 inch), and a digital multimeter which is used to measure output current. The entire system is made of non-corrosive alloys for long life and durability. This machine can produce power from heads as low as 2 metres (6 feet) to over 100 metres ( 300 feet). 


Stream Engine Bottom ViewHOW IT WORKS: Water is collected upstream from the hydro and piped downstream to where the turbine is located. As a rule the greater the head, the better (the difference in elevation between the collection point and the turbine is called the head). These small turbines are especially well suited to produce usable power from springs and creeks that are too small to sustain a conventional A.C. generating system. Because D.C. power can be stored in batteries, these small systems operate 24 hours a day collecting energy, a little at a time, to be delivered "on demand" from the batteries as the need dictates.

The typical American household consumes about 12 thousand watt hours per day (not including electricity to power heating loads), or about 500 watts on average (though this can be reduced to about 300 watts or even less, though careful conservation measures and by eliminating waste).Turgo Runner - 18219 Bytes There are times, however, when as much as 10,000 watts are needed, as when a refrigerator or well pum
Bronze Turgo Wheelp is started. An A.C. system cannot store energy and must be sized to meet this peak demand, requiring up to 40 times as much water as a similarly useful D.C. system. Smaller size saves money. A D.C. system is matched to the average demand and extracts power the way that nature provides it, slow and steady.
