BFL has developed and refined designs to suit installations with a wide range of heads and specific speeds with Higher efficiency models.
Francis turbines with power outputs from 500kW upto 30 MW with runner diameters ranging from 0.35m upto 2.5 m, fabricated or Mono block type with high precision & Quality are manufactured by us. BFL is now using the innovative 3D print technology to manufacture runners which gives higher accuracy & faster delivery.
The first Francis turbine of 0.5m diameter was designed, manufactured and installed in 1989. Francis turbines are suitable for medium head applications ranging from 20m to 300m and are designed for reliable operation with high efficiency. A number of different configurations are possible depending on the desired layout of the power house.
