The Blast Furnace is designed to reduce iron oxides and to separate the resulting iron from the large quantities of impurities in the ore. Blast furnace fans are essential to drive heated air into the furnace and our ID fans are then used to draw the furnace gases. Where a cooling tower exists, our cooling fans are an important way to remove heat.
Every Howden product is backed by an absolute commitment to lifetime support and service that covers all spare parts, troubleshooting, scheduled maintenance and emergency response. We are dedicated to maintaining your plant at peak performance and, above all, keeping it in continuous production.
Some of today's most arduous applications for Howden products are to be found in the iron and steel industry. The need to move large volumes of air or gas, in many cases at high pressures and high dust burdens, places stringent demands on the mechanical design of the impeller.
Our fans are highly efficient designs, reducing power consumption in an energy intensive industry, while operating in high temperature and erosive environments. Our extensive experience in each application enables us to provide equipment of great reliability with the consequent reduction of unplanned outages.
