4) Method of operation. A rebate invert is used when it is specified as a requirement for invert fixing bolts to be incorporated. a) Rebate Invert b) Flush Invert 5 . These considerations include:1) Pressure. so to taken into account obtain the optimum performance from the finished product. 5) Stem types 1) Pressure. Flush inverts offer a smooth passage at the invert and remove any possible debris traps. What pressures are the Penstock going to be subjected to? (refer to diagram for operating directions) On Seating Pressure (Fluid forces the penstock onto wall) Off Seating Pressure (Fluid forces penstock away from wall) On/Off Seating Pressure (Fluid forces can be both ways) Off Seating Pressure On Seating Pressure 2) Types of invert These fall into two categories the rebate and flush. When designing a Penstock it is necessary for a number of factors to be Considerations. 3) Mounting types. 2) Types of Invert.Penstock Selection.

These include cap for T key. electric actuator.Penstock Selection. Diagram (a) shows a wall mounting penstock. the main options are as follows:- Wall Mounting. Channel Rebate Mounting. and handwheel. Diagram b Diagram a Wall Fixed within Channel. Diagram ( c) shows a penstock when it is mounted to the inside of the channel. manual gearbox. Note weir type Penstocks are also available. Diagram (b) shows a channel rebate mounted penstock. The penstock is specifically designed to be mounted in to prepared rebates. 3) Mounting Types The method of fixing the Penstock will depend upon the design requirements. Diagrams (a) and (b) below illustrate some of these options for both rising and non-rising stem applications. the Penstock fixed to the wall by means of expanding or resin type anchor bolts. This method is utilised when a channel does not have rebates for conventional channel rebate mounting or it is pure replacement of exisiting.

rising or non-rising. The thrust for this type of operation is taken directly on the penstock frame. The nut is rotated and the screwed stem works through the nut thus raising or lowering the stem and the door. The recommended stem type under BS7775 is rising. If however due to restricted headroom then non rising is to be specified. Non-Rising Stems. Rising Stems. The thrust for this type of operation can be taken directly on the penstock frame or remotely to civil works. A threaded spindle nut is located in the penstock door.Penstock Selection. A threaded spindle nut is located in the operating equipment and is sometimes referred to as RISING NON-ROTATING TYPE . This falls into two categories. It will provide a usable tolerance by removing any potential dimensional problems against civil works regarding invert to floor levels. The screwed stem is rotated and works through the nut thus raising or lowering the spindle nut and the door. The rising stem offers lower torques thus reducing the operator torque and increases the working life of the Product. 5) Stem Types Rising or Non-Rising When considering the operation of a Penstock the nature of the stem must be specified. If we look at rising stem applications it removes the need to drain locations so to undertake maintenance of the screwed stem. 7 . The screwed portion of the stem is within the penstock frame and is subject to submersion. The screwed portion of the stem is generally not subject to submersion and is readily accessible for maintenance and lubrication.
