Francis Runners

Francis Turbines feature an inward flow reaction to spin the turbine and count on consistent material and fin profiles to operate efficiently. Large intricate cast components produced by MetalTek’s Carondelet Division help drive those applications. Hydro manufacturers and operators also rely on wear rings, seal rings, and shaft sleeves from other MetalTek divisions.
