Howden Parabolic Sectorplates

The latest Rotary Heater leakage reduction method

Hot End Sectorplates structurally designed with variable stiffness to deform parabolically, when actuated, to match the shape of the deformed operating rotor - thereby minimising the hot end leakage gap.

Through continued innovation Howden have recognized the market for ever lower leakage levels and developed parabolic sectorplates (patent pending).

Howden parabolic sectorplates not only reduce draft fan power in the plant but also reduce the gas mass flow to downstream emissions reduction equipment.
