Runner Replacement

NEWPORT NO. 3

This replacement runner and shaft was manufactured by Canadian Hydro Components (CHC) of Ontario, Canada. In addition to the installation of the new runner, Fairbanks Mill, Inc. performed extensive rehabilitation work on the thrust bearing, pressure case, and inlet piping. FMI’s prior work on this unit focused on the penstock, draft tube, and butterfly valve.  Increased revenues attributable to the much higher efficiencies of these modern new runners assist significantly in the economic justifications of these total rehab projects.
