Penstocks have many applications in the arrest and control of liquid flow. They are used on Waterways, Power plants, Industrial effluent plants, hydro power, Drainage and Flood control as well as being used in large numbers on water, waste water and sewage treatment plants.
Penstocks, unlike valves, are normally fitted into or onto the civil structure formwork either in channels or over an aperture in a wall. The channels and apertures are sized to accept a range of flow situations and the penstocks are required to suit. This requirement alone dictates that they are a bespoke product.
