Penstocks, in their basic form, are permanent water gates that control the flow of water from one area to the next, which can be manually adjusted depending on the desired flow. Used on Waterways, Power Plants, Industrial Effluent Plants, Hydro Power, Sewerage/Wastewater Treatment Plants, Drainage and Flood Control.
With a core range manufactured from HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), Flexseal’s range offers considerable benefits over other materials including:
The range is considerably lighter than alternatives resulting in ease of installation with no grout required between frame and wall.
With the HDPE being UV stable i.e. not becoming brittle in direct sunlight and only using pure materials, the product is fully recyclable giving a much lower carbon footprint.
The product requires little lubrication between the frame and the door resulting in a longer life product. The range has leakage rates that are less than both BS 7775 and DIN. 19569-4 class 5.
Penstocks, unlike valves, are normally fitted into or onto the civil structure formwork either in channels or over an aperture in a wall. Flexseal have a wide range available in stock suitable for most applications, with the ability to make bespoke on quick lead times.
