Middle-head reaction turbine invented by James Bicheno Francis in 1848. Great for projects with constant flow, simplified design and two available layouts (vertical and horizontal).
Great for constant flow
The highest efficiency at constant flow.
used for runner and guide vanes.
Simplicity in design
Runner is located directly on generator shaft (alternatively, a coupling and dedicated bearings are used).
for closed piping systems.
Welded in segments.
Horizontal or vertical axis
to accommodate all sites requiring a Francis turbine.
