A fan curve is a graphical illustration of a fan’s performance and is usually generated through laboratory or field testing. But what is it, and what does it tell you?
As part of a recent article in the Biomass Magazine, Margaret Wood (Director – Communications, NYB) shares how leveraging smart technology can reduce maintenance and power consumption costs, as well as compound cost savings over time with continuous monitoring and optimisation.
In this article we continue the explanation of air-movement terminology that is used in the industry on a daily basis.
There is a raft of terminology that is used when discussing the industrial fans and air movement solutions AirEng provides. Although used daily by our team, this jargon may be new to those who require our services. This article identifies and explains a variety of terms related to air-movement solutions.
Industrial processes and plant-ventilation systems often need more air than originally designed. Increased production requirements, process changes, and facility renovations are a few of the major reasons. Additionally, the lack of adequate maintenance over time can negatively impact system airflows. This article discusses several procedures that can increase airflow and thus industrial fan performance.
Multiple design engineering challenges within the Fertiliser Industry include energy efficiency, regulatory pressure and safety in tension with quality, efficient throughput and, ultimately, profitability. An ever growing, constantly evolving choice of air movement solutions is essential in order to meet those challenges and enable the innovation from which they spring.
