Bag Filter fans which were not delivering the required flow rate in Madras Cements were upgraded to deliver enhanced flow by selecting the appropriate fan for the tested parameters.
The main product of Madras Cements is Portland cement manufactured through the five advanced production facilities spread over South India. The cement capacity of the company is 10.49 million tons per annum. ID Fans of Bag Filters need to function to their full capacities in order to keep the working environment clean, especially in the packing area where a lot of dust gets generated due to cement that is exposed to the environment.
Fans designed by Fantek as a replacement were not only energy efficient but were also custom made to suit the inlet, outlet and foundation that were already made and it took only a single shift to replace one fan.
Parameters proposed by Fantek after the study at Madras Cements are given below with scope of improvement in Pressure and Flow Rate
|Plant||System||Flow-m3/s||Tot pr-mmWc||% Flowincrease||% Pressincrease|
|Fan-1||New fan w/o system correction||11.0||404||14.3||32.0|
|Fan-2||New fan w/o system correction||9.5||450||31.3||73.0|
|Fan-2||New fan with system correction||11.0||404||52.1||55.3|
Our range of fans and blowers for the chemical industries cover the process fans required for eliminating wasteful gases to the stack, blowers for supplying pressurized air, fans for boilers that produce steam/electricity for the process and incinerator fans.
Chemical plant fans are generally subjected to the highest levels of corrosion in comparison with other industries. This requires fans to be made of special corrosion resistant material manufactured with unique manufacturing technologies. With the ability to gain access to typically any type of modern manufacturing technology and access to almost all special alloys, we are poised to give you fans suitable for the most corrosive atmospheres.
Fantek’s unique design ability to simulate the functioning of different material, available designs for different types of sealing arrangement depending on your demands and our range of high pressure blowers and fans are a winning combination for serving the chemical industry.
IRON & STEEL
Steel making is a process that involves a huge amount of dust extraction systems and fans mainly required for the main processes of iron and steel making which include Ore beneficiation (Sinter Plant and Pellet Plant), Iron Making (Blast Furnaces and Sponge Iron Kilns) and Steel Making.
Our range of custom and standard centrifugal fans finds use in all of the above listed plants and we give you fans that are extremely reliable and energy efficient to handle the kind of dust and heat that they are subjected to.
We retrofit our own fans with more energy efficient designs when you order spares which will enable you to save power at zero additional cost and the system study for this exercise is also done by us absolutely free!
Our dust extraction systems (pulse jet filters) for the Iron & Steel industry are made with bags that can take the kind of abrasion in the industry for long durations of time. We import the bags from some of our vendors who are best known in this field and have supplied huge quantities in the past
MINING & ORE TREATMENT
Mine ventilation fans need very high specific speeds (a number that indicates relative volume of air delivered for a unit pressure). Fans with high specific speeds, namely custom centrifugal, mixed flow and axial fans have been developed by us and these fans have the highest efficiencies of all fan designs available with us.
Our range of fans for mine ventilation comes with a huge number of safety features, indicators and accessories that help you to operate with lesser maintenance troubles and feel safer.
Right from the storage yard for ore to smelting and refining, our dust collectors and fans find numerous applications in the field of ore treatment. Fans are used for leaching the ore during the initial stages of processing, oxygenating the ore for initiating the reaction of smelting and also for exhausting the gases released during the process.
