Fan Energy
World Cement, April 2019
The production of first-class cement is an energy-intensive process. Due to environmental issues and increasing competition, being mindful of energy efficiency becomes more and more important. Up to 70 % of the cost of producing one ton of cement is related to energy. The potentials for improving the energy efficiency during the production process are immense, and industrial fans play a huge part in this. Industrial fans are high energy consumers and normally they are the second highest consumers within the plant, especially if they are not designed energy-efficiently. Therefore, an intelligent retrofit or upgrade of the existing fans can lead to considerable savings both in energy costs and CO2 emissions.

New Fans According to Old Plans, Pneumatic Conveying March 2019
Four new industrial fans were installed in a power plant in northeastern Mexico, replacing the existing over 40 years old systems. In spite of numerous refurbishments, the old fans from Rothemuehle had become inefficient and maintenance-intensive in the course of time. On this account, the operator had decided to replace the 1975 installed machines completely. By switching to two state-of-the-art fresh air fans and two new induced draft fans as well as the simultaneous implementation of the inlet vane control units from the old Rothemuehle concept to the low-maintenance and more simple POLLRICH design, higher plant efficiency was achieved with greatly reduced energy consumption.

Impeller for harshest environments
May 2018
In various industrial areas, industrial fans and blowers belong to the most important components for plant operation. Switching off of an industrial fan for maintenance purposes is not easily done. The whole production process can come to a standstill when the fan is powered down. Especially in the steel industry, competent and reliable fan-service and accurate time management is essential to reduce standstill to a minimum and to ensure the plant productivity.

Maltery Fans
April 2018
Good, old whiskey and cool beer share some similarities: malt, processed from corn (usually barley,) is needed in the production process. This corn is germinated and afterwards dried. During the whole process, highest purity and quality is required. The supply of fresh air for the drying process, heated up to 120 °C, and the discharge of odour-laden air is vital for the whole process. The humid heat inside the kiln towers makes the highest demands on all installed components.
