Power Mizer Versatility and Capability around the World
Power Mizer Series 6000 blower being readied for a “green” application to convert paper mill byproducts into usable process materials.
Working under difficult, dirty conditions inside paper mills, Power Mizer Series 6000 blowers are helping turn a waste product into a valuable papermaking ingredient. Our OEM customer builds processing plants within paper mills around the world. The blowers handle flue gas in a process that converts mill byproducts into calcium carbonate for paper whitening in place of hazardous chlorine.
To survive the unusually difficult environment, our blowers have special coatings, shaft seals, bearing seals and flushing provisions. The blowers are going into new systems and also replacing installed competitive blowers because they are more reliable and efficient, providing long-term cost savings.
For a municipal landfill gas handling application involving a highly corrosive and combustible “witches’ brew” of methane, carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen and water vapor, we engineered and supplied three Power Mizer Series 7000 blowers powered by 300-horsepower, 4160-volt motors. They have Heresite® coatings on major internal parts for corrosion resistance, a 3/8″ corrosion allowance (extra-thick housing walls), a highly unusual 304 stainless steel blower shaft and two belly wraps for quiet operation. The challenges in this case were so extreme, some of these provisions evolved during an extended period of experimentation and testing.
Power Mizer blowers for an Indonesian refinery feature two special drive configurations: one has a motor and gear increaser for use with 50Hz electricity; the other has a steam turbine power source.
For an oil and gas refinery in Indonesia, we supplied two Power Mizer degassing blowers, which provide a steady flow of air and hydrocarbons to a burner that disposes of byproducts generated during LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) and sulfur recovery. To meet the client’s unusual operating conditions, our blowers were adapted for use with non-standard power sources. One accepts 50Hz electricity and the other is driven by a steam turbine to serve as backup during power outages.
Massive Power Mizer Series 7000 blower with Acoustical Belly Wrap® before shipment to China for municipal wastewater aeration.
Power Mizer Series 7000 blowers were furnished at a wastewater treatment facility in China, serving a city of 4.5 million. The system provides 40,000 cfm of air to the biological treatment process in 36 aeration basins through a network of fine bubble diffusers.
