Engineered Fans

Howden is able to offer a centrifugal fan engineered precisely to the demands of industrial applications. This is based on a long heritage of successfully proven legacy brands, which today form the basis of our expertise and enable us to respond to customers’ requirements with the best available technology.

The range of fans cover heavy-duty applications, from medium to high flows, requiring high specification, such as API, ATEX or to meet particularly harsh air/gas content. All fans are designed to achieve maximum efficiency and deliver outstanding and reliable long-term performance.

Applications

  • Forced or Induced draft (FD/ID) air within power, cement, metal processes
  • Exhaust gas within cement, power, metal (sinter, coking) processes
  • Main air within mine ventilation
  • Air and gas flows within FGD, ESP and bag filter systems
  • De-dusting within metal processes
