Energy crisis is a global phenomenon. The continuous addition of power stations is not the only solution to meet the Energy demand. Saving of Energy or energy conservation has been highlighted, over the last decade, to be the major contributory factor to meet the challenge.
In most of the industries and refineries, Cooling Towers and Fin-Fan Coolers are a common sight. The induced draught cooling towers and air-cooled heat exchangers/air-cooled condensers of both forced and induced draught type use axial flow fans. With the continuously operating plants, these fans are required to operate round-the-clock. COOLFLO fans due to their superior aerodynamic design have proven to increase air flow while operating at same power at motor terminals. The high performance achieved by COOLFLO fans has been established in various installations all over India and other countries. The high efficiency of COOLFLO fans results in low fan power consumption and/or increased air flow and hence Energy Saving.
In India, COOLFLO fans have achieved maximum (unmatched in the industry) power saving when retrofitting conventionally designed fans with GRP / Aluminium blades for the same duty conditions. Of course, this high value of energy savings is not possible in all the fans of all the sizes and it depends on how far away the existing fan is operating from the b. e. p. and the value of efficiency at b.e.p., Our experience over the last two decades enables us to specify confidently a minimum guaranteed power saving of 15% or increase in air flow of about 10% with COOLFLO fans when compared to existing ‘conventionally designed’ fans of any make.
COOLFLO fans have been used to replace fans made with the know-how from some other countries with proven energy efficiency improvements. For some of the clients who required more airflow out of the same diameter of fan, COOLFLO fans have met the requirement by delivering 10 to 20% more air flow than that of the existing fans while operating at rated capacity of the existing motors. Use of such high capacity fans would eliminate costly additions/modifications to existing cells in cooling tower or air-cooled heat exchanger/condenser. As a result of continuous R & D, COOLFLO has a wide range of configurations of fans for each size to meet the specific duty requirements of different installations. Hence, while replacing existing fans or for OEM supplies, COOLFLO designers choose the specific size and configuration of fan to ensure its operation as much close to its b.e.p. as possible. Hence, HIGH PERFORMANCE.
