Turbine

In some watermills, a Turbine was used as a source of power instead of a Waterwheel. In many cases, the Turbine was installed when a watermill was modernised, although a few mills were built new with Turbines.

Turbine

The Turbine was an Italian Turbine Class destroyer of 1073 tons displacement launched in 1927. The Borea was powered by three Express boilers with super heaters providing a top speed of 36 knots and carried a complement of 142. She was armed with four 4.7-inch guns; four 37 mm anti-aircraft guns; two 13 mm anti-aircraft guns and six 21-inch torpedo...

Turbine

Rotary engine that converts the energy of a moving stream of water, steam, or gas into mechanical energy. The basic element in a turbine is a wheel or rotor with paddles, propellers, blades, or buckets arranged on its circumference in such a fashion that the moving fluid exerts a tangential force that turns the wheel and imparts energy to it. This ...

Turbine

• (n.) A form of steam engine analogous in construction and action to the water turbine. There are practically only two distinct kinds, and they are typified in the de Laval and the Parsons and Curtis turbines. The de Laval turbine is an impulse turbine, in which steam impinges upon revolving blades from a flared nozzle. The flare of the nozzl...

Turbine

Originally a turbine was a high-speed water-wheel consisting of a horizontal wheel usually constructed with a series of curved floats upon the periphery and driven by a column of water falling into its interior and escaping through oblique channels so as to impel the wheel in the opposite direction. Now, the term turbine is applied to any rotary ma...

Turbine

An integral piece of the turbocharger, this small fan drives the compressor. A rotor with vanes or blades which is driven by the movement of fluid or gases across its surface. The turbine wheel in a turbocharger spins as a result of exhaust gases. In a torque converter, a turbine is used to propel ATF within the unit.
