  • Publication number: 20180195488
    Abstract: A runner for a Pelton turbine has a multiplicity of buckets which are arranged on a disk-shaped wheel and which each have a bucket root directly adjoining the wheel and a bucket body. The disk-shaped wheel, with the bucket roots, is formed in one piece from a forged material. Separately produced bucket bodies, formed of three separate parts per bucket, are connected by welding to the respectively associated bucket root. A first part encompasses the entire part of the bucket body that extends radially beyond the bucket root, and two other parts, axially adjacent to the bucket root, encompass the rest of the bucket body.
