New solar-powered penstock from Ham Baker

Flow control specialist Ham Baker, manufacturer of penstocks for over a century, has unveiled a new range of Solar-Powered Penstocks, which can be easily retrofitted to existing manually-operated systems for the control of liquid flow.

This innovative new Ham Baker penstock is designed with a self-cleaning solar panel for maximum capture, offering a life cycle of 25 years, with a minimum of 10-years life for the panel’s almost maintenance-free batteries.

As well as reduced energy bills, the Ham Baker Solar Powered Penstock offers short payback times depending on size.

Designed with state-of-the-art software, manufactured and rigorously tested at its own UK manufacturing plant, Ham Baker’s proven penstocks are available in traditional cast iron, all grades of stainless steel (including Duplex), aluminium or plastics, to suit the application.

Ham Baker can also provide solar powering for the actuation systems used on its flow products such as rotary electric , linear (hydraulic/pneumatic).
