Reliable fans for catalyst regeneration process
Garden City Fans (shrouded and un-shrouded designs), used for conventional and high pressure catalyst regeneration applications, are designed to operate efficiently at continuous high speeds and temperatures (typically between 500°C and 850°C). Fans for this process are manufactured for lasting performance due to their purposeful design with rigid double walls, and filled with high density insulation.
This unique, double wall insulated housing acts to reduce heat loss while adding personnel protection. Standard fan features include a custom fabricated monoblock bearing assembly, nitrogen purged Shaft Seal, and custom designed fan wheels with a focus on efficiency and reliability.
Various bearing lubrication methods are available for the monoblock bearing assembly including static oil, forced lubrication, or oil mist lubrication. Temperature and vibration monitoring equipment is also available to provide long term protection and reliability for the monoblock bearing assembly.
High pressure catalyst regeneration fans are very stable, typically with a minimum of 12mm thick casing, bracing on 150mm centers, rigid sub-base mounting, tight anchors on the inlet, and anvils in the housing to resist forces. Every fan we manufacture for high pressure catalyst regeneration is built and tested to withstand 150 psi (1034 kPa) hydrostatic pressure.
