What is a Nuclear Fan?

Nuclear fans are specialised products designed to meet the rigorous demands of nuclear facilities. These fans are engineered with options for gas-tight construction, durable materials, advanced sealing arrangements, and are designed with specific maintenance requirements. They also can be designed to consider seismic resilience and are built to have a long operational lifespan, often exceeding standard industrial requirements.


Applications of Our Fans

Our fans are used in a variety of critical applications within nuclear facilities, including:

•         Containment Ventilation Systems: Maintain negative pressure to prevent the escape of radioactive materials.

•         Cooling Systems: Critical for removing heat from reactors, auxiliary systems, and spent fuel pools.

•         Air Handling Units (AHUs): Provide controlled ventilation, heating, and cooling for personnel and equipment.

•         Turbine Hall Ventilation: Ensure optimal conditions for turbines and associated machinery.

•         Emergency Vent Systems: Control airflow during emergencies to contain hazardous substances.

•         Control Room Ventilation: Maintain a stable environment for operators and sensitive equipment.

•         Spent Fuel Storage Ventilation: Remove heat and prevent the buildup of harmful gases in storage areas.

•         Generator Cooling: Keep generators cool to maintain performance and prevent overheating.
