Trash racks and protective equipment
For hydroelectric projects, water development works, irrigation and water management projects SDTB «Zaporozhgidrostal» is involved in design of trash racks that are important and integral part of hydrotech-nical systems. Trash racks are the most important parts of hydropower plants, pumping plants and navi-gable sluices; reliable and safe operation of hydrotechnical river systems depends on the state of trash racks.
Trash racks serve reliable protection of generating units against various floating objects, slush ice, and at HPP located in the mountains – against stones and gravel brought by the flow. Moreover, in rivers with high flow speed and turbulent flow, trash racks can serve a stabilizing element.
