Industrial processes

Our industrial fan division concentrates on supplying a wide range of fans and blowers* which provide a continuous flow of air or gas to support the needs of specific industrial processes including aeration, cooling, drying, combustion, ventilation, particulate transport and exhaust gases.

These machines are designed to be easily installed and require low running costs once in place. 

Our customers rely on Howden fans to make sure the production process doesn't stop - whether that's in manufacturing and processing industries such as food and drink, or any other application.

In this case a blower is a name for a fan that operates where the resistance to the flow is mainly on the downstream side of the fan. If you would like to find out more about this, please visit our Knowledge Centre.

Diaphragm  compressors are also used, providing reliability and high availability levels on continuous manufacturing lines requiring elevated pressure. Gas confinement is ensured thanks to a fully sealed compression chamber ensuring gas purity preservation or avoid any environment contamination by toxic gases.

 Howden Turbo Fans ExVel(R) range is designed to compress water vapour in industrial MVC evaporator applications to concentrate aqueous feeds with simultaneous production of distilled water.
