Howden Axial Fans supplies a range of custom engineered axial flow fans.
Our product range includes the VARIAX® and the PF variable pitch axial flow fans. They come in two basic types: the single stage fan and the two stage fan which are both used in power generation and mining applications. We also supply axial fans for tunnels and wind tunnels as well as the TELLUS and AXICO axial fans for clean-room applications and the UMAF fan for metros, mines and other industrial applications.

Our sales, engineering, R&D and project management departments are based in Næstved, Denmark, in Växjö, Sweden and in Ebnat, Germany. We employ a team of experienced professional mechanical, structural, aerodynamic and electrical engineers who are fully familiar with modern design techniques including finite element analysis and computer aided design.

Our dedicated R&D department is continuously developing the axial fan products both mechanically and aerodynamically to meet our customers' needs and improve performance.

All fans are designed for optimum efficiency according to internationally approved standards and specifications and manufacturing is carried out in specialised Howden facilities in Weihai, China. We have ISO 9001:2008 accreditation for our quality assurance procedures, our environmental standards are certified to ISO 14001:2004, and we have a health and safety programme that meets OHSAS 18001:2008 criteria. You can find out more about this in our QA and EHS Policy.

A fully equipped aerodynamic laboratory, built according to AMCA 210, is available in Denmark for scale-model aerodynamic testing of fans and in our workshop in Germany we offer renovations of hubs and cylinders, functional tests of hydraulic cylinders and much more.

We also have equipment for stress, acoustic and vibration measurements. Moreover on-site performance testing of equipment can be conducted to internationally recognised standards using portable equipment.

"With over six decades of experience from designing and manufacturing axial flow fans, we have in-depth knowledge of the markets we serve and we always strive to provide our customers with the optimum solution."
