Howden offers a broad range of products and can tailor solutions according to customer specifications.

The glass making process requires combustion air and cooling fans for the furnace area, exhaust fans, and recovery systems, and recirculation fans for the glass forming part of the process. Our range extends from ventilation systems to heavy duty abrasion resistant fans capable of working at high temperatures. Our steam turbines provide onsite power and also recovery energy to process.

Benefits of our products within glass production

  • Durable fans proven in high temperature applications for reliable service and minimal production downtime
  • High efficiency steam turbines delivering economical power and heat to the plant as well as flexible steam feeds for energy recovery to the manufacturing process

ExVel™ Composite

The ExVel® Composite turbo fan is changing the game in glass production, offering unrivalled safety and reliability while saving energy and lowering operating costs.

Our unique carbon fiber composite technology is specifically engineered to combat high-cycle fatigue and results in exceptional life and reliability. Combined with our unique ExVel turbo fan technologies, Howden offer unmatched fan performance and reliability.

For applications requiring start/stop cycles or process/load changes, the ExVel Composite has changed the game with technology, which can eliminate fatigue cracks and failures known to plague steel impellers. This allows users to substantially reduce and even eliminate unplanned downtime, planned shutdowns, and routine maintenance costs related to steel fan impeller and fatigue, and more importantly increase reliability and plant safety.

Steam Turbines

Our steam turbines are used extensively with small-scale industrial power settings such as glass plants. They are also central to waste heat recovery, renewable energy systems and as drives for heavy machinery.

Energy recovery is a major industrial topic. Our steam turbines convert the waste heat produced in glass manufacturing to new forms of energy with a high degree of overall utilisation: electric power, heat and steam.

The return on investment (ROI) of a steam turbine for a medium-size float glass plant is very attractive, being typically less than 2 years, depending on production volume and energy.
