The segmental ring waterwheel is a stationary waterwheel for downhill hydropower. The modular design allows the water wheel to be flexibly adapted in diameter to local conditions. As with the bracelet of a watch, the number of segments determines the diameter. The width of the water wheel is also variable, as several wheel rims can be arranged next to each other on one shaft.
The flexurally rigid stainless steel segments are manufactured on automatic laser machines,
they are precisely centered. Individually ventilated cells ensure optimum run-in and pouring behavior. Larch wood arm pairs are very durable, they do not require wood preservative. Wooden arms have a vibration damping effect in the system. Stainless steel segments and wooden arms can be dismantled individually.
