Howden is the one company who offers all of the primary rotating machinery types commonly used for MVR vapor compressor applications, and thus the widest product range.
From the world renowned Roots® Rotary Blowers to industry leading ExVel® Turbo Fans, to our lines of centrifugal compressors, we have achieved an extensive depth of experience in MVR applications in numerous industries.
Rely on Howden to be your trusted advisor to help you secure the optimum MVR vapor compressor solution.
Ask Howden. We are happy to work with you to evaluate all of the different technologies on the aspects below to help you make the most practical technology decisions to best benefit your plant's bottom line
Identify which of the many different product technologies may fit the flow and delta-T demands for the project…different technologies will come with different combinations of capital expense, operational efficiencies and cost, and product, installation, or maintenance features, and so there may be more than one technology choice and combinations of product value to your operation. Ask Howden to help you weigh and measure the differences.
Changes in MVR process chemistry, feed, throughput, seasonal, etc. all will have significant affect on the overall efficiency and power consumption of the vapour compressor: different compressor technologies and methods of flow control will have very different energy demands and therefore operational costs across these load changes.
Howden offers a full spectrum of aftermarket services across the world to help keep your plant operational and productive, from spare parts and regular inspection / maintenance programs to full turnkey installation and rebuild services. With a presence in around 30 countries and the largest global aftermarket team in the fan and compressor industry, we have the depth and breadth to minimise your maintenance costs and downtime to maximise your uptime.
CAPEX: Each technology will have a different capital cost
OPEX: Each technology will have a different operating cost
The energy required to drive the vapour compressor may be available as electricity from the grid, excess plant steam, fossil fuel for an engine, etc., each with different affects to capital and operational costs.
With each compressor technology comes different component technology, options and resulting value in lifetime and maintenance costs. Be sure to ask if the product design and components are selected for you case to simply be the lowest cost option, or the right option for your long term plant operation expectations.
Howden understands the unique process, aerodynamic, mechanical, and operations requirements of MVR applications.
Our lifelong aftercare service will supply original replacement parts, support you with maintenance and installation, and even train your own engineers in maintenance techniques. We keep detailed plant records almost indefinitely, and regularly supply spare parts for machinery over 50 years old.
