          Pelton Wheel

          Typical Materials:

          Stainless steel

          A Pelton wheel is an impulse-type
          water turbine invented by American
          inventor Lester Allan Pelton in the
          1870s. The Pelton wheel extracts energy
          from the impulse of moving water, as
          opposed to water's dead weight like
          the traditional overshot water wheel.                                      Profiling/Roughing

          oil pad bearings in hydroelectric plants.
