Representative On-Site Exhibits


Hydraulic elevator dam (HED)

HED is a low-head water-retaining sluice which is installed on a monoblock hinged support in conjunction with a small-angle swing cylinder. It goes up to retain water and down to discharge water by rotating around the bottom shaft within a certain angle, as the cylinder is powered by the hydraulic pump station to stretch out and retract. It is applicable to scenarios with an impounding height of 1-5 meters, such as river landscape, storage for irrigation, reservoir expansion, and ecological water storage in rivers and lakes, especially water storage in mountainous areas where floodwater rise and fall or during the glacial period. Hydraulic elevator dam has been put into mass production, and have been widely applied in China, Myanmar, Thailand and Bangladesh.
