This type of machine is used in virtually every industrial sector and operates under widely varying
conditions. Whether for generation of pressure, cooling or heating, material transportation or
ventilation, the demands placed on fans are diverse, making them prone to errors and disruptions
in their service life:
The requirements for the availability of process fans are very stringent in many production
processes. If a fresh air fan, ID fan or recirculation blower fails in a thermal power plant,
this generally results in downtime for the entire block. In addition to loss-of-production
costs, machine protection is also an important factor. Unnoticed excessive machine
vibrations can completely destroy entire machine trains.
Condition monitoring helps to avoid disruptions, to detect wear processes early on and to
optimize the service life of the components. The result: increased system availability
and productivity. Corrective measures, such as shaft alignment, field balancing or measuring
foundation flatness, round up the implementation of active servicing for these machine types.
