Segmentkranz - Wasserrad

... every water quantity works !

   

This special modular construction enables the waterwheel to adapt its diameter to each possible geographic circumstances.

 
You can compare this construction to the bracelet of a watch. The number of segments
defines the seize of the diameter.
 
The broadness of the waterwheel as well can vary in seize. Several segment - rims can be added one next to the other on the same shaft.

T
ough and rigid segments of stainless steel are produced by laser machines. They are exactly suitable to the centre of the wheel !
Each cell is ventilated so the waterstream can float in and out in the best possible way.

The wooden arms ( larch ) are very durable. They don`t need any toxic treatment. Specialist literature describes the endurance of larch wood:
wet condition:  600 years
wet and dry conditions:  90 years
   
Stainless steel segments and wooden arms can be deinstalled separately.
