The Importance of Fans in Power Generation

Forced draft, induced draft and dust control fans all feature in power generation applications, with industrial fans needing to be able to operate effectively at extremely high temperatures. In order to do this, fans must undergo special construction features, and have heat-resistant paint finishes: both of which we do at Woodcock & Wilson.

One thing we always take into account, is the fact that excessive heat build-up is likely in the bearings, so we include specific features in our fan designs to help avoid this.

Another common feature of the power generation industry, is high particulate content in the gas stream, which may require fans with self-cleaning impeller designs; and gas-fired generation requires ATEX fans, which we can help with too.


ATEX Fans for the Power Generation Industry

At Woodcock & Wilson, we manufacture and supply a range of ATEX fans, that have been specifically designed for companies working in power generation.

Since January 2003, it’s been a legal requirement to protect employees from any risk of explosion in areas that are prone to an explosive atmosphere. When working with power, there is an increased chance of this.

Rest assured that all of our ATEX fans have been constructed according to the mandatory directive of the European Parliament, which means they operate safely in explosive or hazardous atmospheres.
