The turbine SETUR is a hydraulic motor, which is able to function with relatively small energy input. It is able to effectively utilize micro energies from water sources that are renewable and convert them into useful work. General characteristics of this equipment are concealed in the fact that this is relatively new type of equipment which is utilizing hydraulic principles not implemented anywhere in the World. This "Rolling Hydraulic Machine" is at the moment the only technical equipment, which can be from the economical, ecological cleanliness, and technical simplicity point of view installed under unstable or borderline energy conditions. It is therefore able to successfully produce mechanical energy with effectiveness of 65 - 75% where other apparatus for technical and economical reasons cannot be installed. In practice, it is about potential energy obtained form very small down grades and minimal water flow quantities. For example effective possibilities to harvest energy present themselves with water level differences of around 0.5 - 1.5 meters or water volumes of 2 - 20 liters/sec passing through the turbine. In practice, these unusually small natural water sources are not being utilized anywhere in the world at this time, even though they represent more then half of the worldwide hydro-energy potential. Turbine SETUR appears to be the possible source of the driving force in the inevitable change of this negative situation towards improvement, because it offers to its users simply, inexpensively, and effectively to explore natural and renewable resources where it was absolutely not possible until now.
World's innovation, new principle of function, and simple industrial utilization of turbine SETUR and for its economical use made it possible to obtain wide ranging coverage of patenting protection. In most of the industrialized countries in the world the Rolling Hydraulic Machine is patented nationally or internationally including improved applications and technical innovations are subject to attached patenting protection. (For example, in the USA it is the United States Patent 6,139,267, in Australia Letters Patent No. 722378, the publication of the Euro-patent is prepared by the European Patent Office, application solutions under the name Hydraulic Motor is registered for international patent protection Registration PCT/CZ99/00012 etc.).
