The contexts suggest that the Stromrad in these URL’s is a waterwheel that is passively moved by the liquid.

But your description suggests that the Stromrad referred to in your test is active, not passive, i.e. moved the liquid. Impeller would fit that description and function:
>>impeller [MECH ENG} the rotating member of a turbine, blower, fan , axial or centrifugal pump, or mixing apparatus, also known as rotor<<
