The 2kW Cross Flow turbine is an excellent choice for low head applications using water from small streams and creeks in fairly flat terrain. This turbine will efficiently generate power (up to 2 kW) on sites with 22-40 feet of head and using 300 -450 gpm of water. It has several advantages over other turbine styles, and buying from ABS Alaskan gives you a $600 discount off the MSRP ($4500)!
The Cross Flow works well for many installation sites that would not be effective with other turbines, because it is designed to operate efficiently with low water pressure. This means the Cross Flow turbine does not require especially high volume water flow, or a high-head/high-pressure water inlet. If your planned installation site suffers from seasonal flow rate changes, as many smaller creeks do, the Cross Flow turbine can still work for you!
This turbine is designed for low maintenance and a long service life. The runner and sealed bearings are stainless steel, and the casing is made from heat treated, powder coated, cast aluminum. A few basic tools are all you will need to install and maintain your Cross Flow turbine. And unlike many other micro-hydro turbines available today, the 2kW Cross Flow is made in the USA!
