Turbo Pressure Blowers: Howden American Fan Company
Howden American Fan Company launched a line of turbo pressure blowers, ideal for higher pressure systems in combustion air, air pollution control, textile fiber stripping, recycling applications, as well as chemical, pulp and paper, glass, and food processing industry applications. With a wide range of accessories, Howden American Fans customizes the turbo pressure blowers to each individual customer’s system requirements.
Howden offers turbo pressure blowers for pressures to 80-in static pressure water gauge (SPWG), with capacities up to 8,000 cfm. The fans are available with a wide variety of materials, wheel types, fan arrangements, and sensors. According to the company, experts review the required performance and air conditions for each application, and then select the right size fan and appropriate accessories. Application-specific features are added as necessary, for example, stainless steel or other alloy airstream, corrosion-resistant materials and coatings, high-temperature or spark-resistant construction, companion flanges to match ductwork, and pressure gauges.
Howden American Fan’s turbo pressure blowers are constructed from heavy gage continuously welded housings, which are reversible and rotatable. Round inlet and outlets feature flanges drilled to match ANSI 150 # pipe flanges (outlet flange standard). Dynamically balanced wheels aim to ensure smooth operation. Three inlet types are available — stub pipe, flanged, or venturi (standard). Lifting eyes are standard to guarantee handling ease.
