Flow Control Sluice Gates - Series 15

Fontaine’s SERIES 15 (cf FIG 1) is a highly STANDARD versatile flow control penstock. Adaptable to different applications, the SERIES 15 is designed to withstand maximum seating and unseating heads ranging from 6 to 9 meters, with a maximum leakage of : 9.0 m for 150mm to 300mm : 0.5 L/min, 7.5 m for 400mm to 600mm : 0.6 L/min, 6.0 m for 700mm to 1000mm : 0.7 L/min.

The leakage rate is maintained inside boundaries of maximum allowable leakage recommended by BS7775 (2005). The SERIES 15 is available in eleven standard sizes from 150mm up to 1000mm. The design is suitable for square or round applications.

General Description

Fontaine’s SERIES 15 (cf FIG 1) is a highly STANDARD versatile flow control penstock. Adaptable to different applications, the SERIES 15 is designed to withstand maximum seating and unseating heads ranging from 6 to 9 meters, with a maximum leakage of :

  • 9.0 m for 150mm to 300mm : 0.5 L/min1 ;
  • 7.5 m for 400mm to 600mm : 0.6 L/min ;
  • 6.0 m for 700mm to 1000mm : 0.7 L/min.

The leakage rate is maintained inside boundaries of maximum allowable leakage recommended by BS7775 (2005). The SERIES 15 is available in eleven standard sizes from 150mm up to 1000mm. The design is suitable for square or round applications.

Construction

The SERIES 15 is made of 316L stainless steel providing high corrosion and erosion resistance and can be operated for many years with a minimum of maintenance. Stainless steel provides virtually limitless design flexibility. The result is a lighter weight and easier-to-install gate.

In accordance with our high standards of quality, the penstocks are completely factory assembled as well as tested for operation and leakage before being shipped. It eliminates the needs for any on-site assembly and adjustments.

Mounting

The SERIES 15 is designed for concrete wall (CW).

BS Standards

SERIES 15 penstocks are built to match British Standards pertaining to design safety factors, stem and stem guides positioning, manual lifting devices and leakage.

Seals

SERIES 15 seals are made of an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) allowing no metal-to-metal contact. Its low coefficient of friction makes the gate easier to open even when not operated for long periods of time. The self-adjusting feature is obtained by a continuous compression cord that ensures a tight seal between the gate and the frame in both seating and unseating conditions. The continuous wedging action of the compression cord on the slide’s seals enables the SERIES 15 penstocks to control flow by allowing water only through the open portion of the gate. This feature means that the SERIES 15 is ideal for throttling applications.

Flange Back Frame

The stainless steel frame on the SERIES 15 is a flange back type (cf FIG 2) available in open or self-contained configurations, providing a solid one-piece penstock. The rigidity provided by the flange back frame makes it easier to handle in transportation and installation with less risk of distortion. The seal bolts are completely separated from the flange anchoring. This feature also allows the penstock to be completely factory assembled before being shipped. It also eliminates any on-site assembly and adjustments.

Reinforced Gate

The gate is a stainless steel plate reinforced with members welded to the plate, making it a solid single piece.

Seals Arrangement

The side and top seals (SECTION A-A & B-B) of the SERIES 15 are made of self-lubricating UHMWPE, allowing no metal-to-metal contact.
