A system including a hydraulic turbine system, including a first hydraulic turbine, including a first hydraulic body with a first runner chamber, a first runner within the first runner chamber, a first primary nozzle fluidly coupled to the first runner chamber, a first auxiliary nozzle fluidly coupled to the first runner chamber and configured to equalize pressure in the first runner chamber, and a first valve fluidly coupled to the first auxiliary nozzle and configured to control a fluid flow into the first runner chamber.


A system includes an industrial system including a rotary isobaric pressure exchanger (IPX). The rotary IPX is configured to receive a first amount of a non-corrosive fluid at a first pressure and a second amount of a corrosive fluid at a second pressure. The first pressure is greater than the second pressure, and the first amount is different from the second amount. The rotary IPX is also configured to exchange pressures between the non-corrosive fluid and the corrosive fluid. Additionally, the rotary IPX is configured to output a first mixture of the corrosive fluid and the non-corrosive fluid at a third pressure and to output the non-corrosive fluid at a fourth pressure. The third pressure is greater than the fourth pressure.


A rotary isobaric pressure exchanger (IPX) includes a first end cover having a first surface that interfaces with a first end face of a rotor, wherein the first end cover has at least one first fluid inlet and at least one first fluid outlet. The IPX includes a second end cover having a second surface that interfaces with a second end face of the rotor, wherein the second end cover has at least one second fluid inlet and at least one second fluid outlet. The IPX includes a port disposed through the first surface of the first end cover or through the second surface of the second end cover, wherein during rotation of the cylindrical rotor about the rotational axis the port is configured to fluidly communicate with at least one channel of the plurality of channels within the rotor.
