Thermal & hidroelectric power plants

Symmetric flow

FCA VCH Fixed Cone discharge valves are generally used as a control and isolation valve on the discharge area at the bottom of dams. They offer an effective solution for flow control and energy dispersion.

FCA design concept guarantees an optimal hydraulic behaviour providing stability and lack of vibrations and cavitation without interfering with the opening level. This design makes that the conditions for energy dispersion are most appropriate providing a symmetric flow.

Severe Service Valve Package Solutions

Robust solutions

The valve expels a high speed water jet in the shape of a hollow cone. When the water comes in contact with the air, it is pulverized and an intense dispersion of the kinetic energy takes place.

Worldwide Main End Users have trusted FCA robust solutions for this kind of Hydro Electrical power stations.
