Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN AND RELATING TO GRAVITY TYPE WATER WHEELS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS CONCERNANT LES ROUES HYDRAULIQUES A GRAVITE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A water wheel (1) in which a plurality of water receptacles (30) are coupled to a belt (20) , the belt (20) arranged to freely depend from a rot at able shaft (10) . The water receptacles (3) are fixed to the belt (20) such that the water receptacles (30) are maintained in a substantially upright position as the water receptacles (30) descend with rotation of the belt (20) and shaft (10) . The water receptacles (30) are upturned more rapidly and at a lower position than is possible with e.g. breast type water wheels, to offering increased efficiency in energy recovery.
(FR)Roue hydraulique (1) comportant une pluralité de godets à eau (30) couplés à une courroie (20), ladite courroie (20) étant agencée librement pour être reliée un arbre rotatif (10). Les godets à eau (30) sont fixés à la courroie (20) de telle façon que les godets à eau (30) soient maintenus en position sensiblement redressée pendant que les godets à eau (30) descendent avec la rotation de la courroie (20) et de l'arbre (10). Les godets à eau (30) sont retournés plus rapidement et à un point plus bas qu'il n'est possible par ex. avec une roue de poitrine, ce qui améliore le rendement de la récupération d'énergie.
