Providing ventilation solutions to some of the most remote and difficult environments in the world


For over 160 years we have developed innovative rotating equipment. We are the world's leading application engineer.

We engineer and construct large turnkey ventilation, refrigeration and gas cleaning systems, integrate equipment into existing plant, or supply stand-alone units for user-defined duties.

With nearly 160 years’ experience meeting our customers’ mining ventilation needs it is little wonder that the world’s major commodities producers trust us to design, build, install and commission engineered solutions that offer the user exceptional performance and dependability, even in the harshest operating conditions.

Howden also supplies blowers and fans essential to the MVR process as well as heat processing equipment from our ACI range of Mine Air Heaters, which became part of the Howden family when we acquired ACI-CANEFCO in 2018.
