Title: HYDRAULIC MACHINE FOR LOW WATERFALLS
Abstract:
The present application for a patent of invention relates to a hydraulic machine for low waterfalls below 2 metres in height, which by harnessing the flow of fluid (water) and the hydraulic twist thereof acting on said machine, provides mechanical energy for the production of electricity using the hydro potential of rivers and small streams where physical conditions such as height have not been exploited to the fullest and have been a limiting factor as regards satisfying the electricity needs of the population living in areas around such rivers and streams. It also provides a hydraulic machine for low waterfalls below 2 metres in height which is low-cost, efficient and easy to construct compared to the leading manufacturers of hydraulic machines who do not provide or offer this type of hydraulic machine for low waterfalls below 2 metres in height. Said hydraulic machine for low waterfalls is characterized in that it comprises a stator (40), a rotor (20), a shaft (12), two discs (27, 27'), an axle hub (15) and a pair of ball bearings (13, 13').
