Hydroelectric Energy Weldments

For the efficient generation of hydroelectric power, it is required to have complex geometry.  The experts at developing that geometry from Natel Energy work closely with our engineering staff to turn their design into a reality in metal.  After completing several smaller versions of a similar nozzle, Hester Fabrication eventually produced this geometric masterpiece.  It is a transition nozzle from round to trapezoid, and then split into two separate rectangular outputs.  Adding to the difficulty of this nozzle was the fact that it was made from 5/16" thick high strength steel making forming a unique challenge for both our engineers and our fabricators.  In the end, the results speak for themselves as you can see it came out beautifully.
