Svante Lindström graduated as a civil engineer from the Royal Technical University of Stockholm KTH in 1895. He then joined a furnisher of turbines and there developed various details for better technical performance. Around 1900 he also visited Escher & Wyss Zurich, the Swiss turbine and pump furnishers to obtain insight in the then latest technological advances. Lindström was appointed Lecturer of hydraulic machinery at Chalmers Technical University, Gothenburg in 1906 and was promoted to professor in 1911. He there stayed all through his professional career.
Lindström was the Swedish expert in hydraulic machinery during the first decades of the 20th century. He was both a practitioner based on extensive works in the turbine industry as also the teacher that devoted many forces to interested students. Lindström also erected a small hydraulic laboratory at Chalmers University and thus tested his designs with an experimental approach. Out of these activities originated Lindström's textbook on turbines and pumps for water flow, published in 1928. There appear to be no other publications written by this practicing engineer, except for his lecture notes that were taken over partly by his successors.
