Plastic Penstock Installment

Owner: Thorne Properties
Location: Georges Mills, NH

Thorne Hydro Plant


Fairbanks Mill, Inc. has worked on several high head, low flow hydro sites where the best choice for penstock material is plastic. At this site in central New Hampshire, a slip joint PVC pipe proved the best choice for economy, reliability, and efficiency. Other sites have used a field welded HDPE pipe, which is now commonly available in diameters up to 48”. One of the big benefits of plastic pipe is the low friction losses.
