Quite simply, small hydro is hydro electric power on a small scale. Not the huge dams you might see an action movie star jumping from, but small scale turbines which provide power to an industrial site or a small community.
Flowing water is harnessed to spin a turbine. The turbine’s movement powers a generator, which supplies the community with power. Small hydro encompasses any operation up to around 20MW.
Our single point Electro-Luber™ is fully submersible, for areas at risk of seasonal flooding, and provides controlled continuous lubrication for constantly moving parts, such as screw turbines.
Small hydro lubrication systems
ATS Electro-Lube have 35 years of lubrication experience in the water & waste water treatment industries. Whilst the hydro sector is relatively new, many of the same challenges apply.
Hydro power lubrication is a fair bit simpler than water treatment. Fewer types of machinery, less sludge and grit, and lower downtime costs.
But keeping hydro systems running at optimal performance is no less important to the communities depending on their power generation.
ATS Electro-Lube’s hydro lubrication systems can be used on any moving mechanical parts, including...
ATS lubrication for hydro systems provides a waterproof, reliable, and maintenance free solution for screw turbines, pumps, generators and other moving machinery.
Our single point lubricators provide continuous 24 hour lubrication for machinery in constant use. The lubricators take seconds to install, will prolong machinery life, lower operating costs, and reduce the risk of failure.
