Power Station Fans
The power station boilers require fans in front of the boilers like the FD Fans (Force draft), exit of the boilers like the ID Fans (Induced draft), PA Fans (Primary Air) and also SA Fans (Secondary Air) Fans. These fans are again lifeline for the smooth and efficient operation of the boiler and ensure continuous production of power. Some of these fans like ID Fans handle extremely abrasive cases and also operate at high temperatures as well.
Special materials of construction are used for the fans in the Power station boilers. Large power station boilers beyond 500 MW and above use Auto Variable Pitch Axial Flow Fans and the plants below 500 MW utilize the Centrifugal / Radial fans.
