One of the methods for making cast iron is the use of cupola furnaces. These furnaces use large amounts of coal coke to melt the raw iron components. The coke is feed by a forced draft fan to aid in combustion. Induced draft fans are used to exhaust the combustion products from this commonly used foundry process, keeping the work environment safe from toxic fumes. We have been supplying fans to foundries for decades, and have the design and manufacturing capabilities to meet the most demanding system requirements. |
Ovens are used in a variety of industries for heating and drying product. As material is conveyed through the oven, plug fans are typically used for recircuclation air. This ensures oven temperature is uniform through each zone. As a product is dried or cured it also can emit VOC’s which must be exhausted. Oven exhaust fans carry these gases to atmosphere or to a scrubber or oxidizer depending on the concentration levels. Buffalo Fan offers a variety of pedestal and pedestal plug fans with high temp features, such as shaft coolers, leaktight construction, insulation are common on high temp oven exhaust fans. Ovens in the automotive industry are used for baking and curing coatings after application. It is critical to keep the oven temperature even throughout the process and exhaust the emitted fumes and VOC’s. Northern Fan provides a wide variety of wall mounted or floor mounted plug fans for meeting the performance requirements for any oven application. Northern Fan radial blade and backward inclined fans are commonly used for the high temperature requirements of exhausting the oven air. Kitchens and restaurants require specialized equipment for exhausting contaminated air. Ovens, stoves, grills and dishwashers produce moist, hot, smoky, and grease-laden air that must be removed from the kitchen and discharged away from building surfaces. That is why Buffalo Fan offers a full line of UL762 listed kitchen exhaust fans and grease collection systems for kitchen and restaurant use.
Tempered glass or safety glass is produced by controlling the temperature (extreme heat and fast cooling) of the glass. High velocity air hits the glass from above and below as it leaves the Lehr furnace. The air rapidly cools and tempers the glass by setting boundary layers in the glass. Due to the environmental conditions associated with manufacturing glass, we can design and manufacture a custom solution to your exact performance requirements.
In cement industry, after cement is dried by being put through a rotary kiln and converted to clinker, it needs to be cooled. Cooling tunnels are used to reduce the temperature of the clinker from over 2000°F to a workable 200°F. These tunnels typically use forced draft fans to push the cooled air through the clinker. Buffalo Fan have been supplying fans to the cement industry for over 50 years, and can manufacture any fan to your exact specifications and performance requirements.
Coal is often stored after being mined. Before processing, it must be dried, and many times requires the use of a rotary drum dryer to assist in the process. When drying, the coal is tumbled while hot air passes over the material and through the drum. Our fans are used to drive the hot air that forces the excess water out of the coal, leaving useable, dry coal. Regardless of the size of your operation and system requirements, Buffalo Fan is capable of manufacturing virtually any size fan or blower to meet your exact specifications.
Kiln dryers are used to dry a variety of powdered materials for purposes as diverse as food production to building materials. The fans used in these dryers remove the high moisture content by forcing heated air across the material. Kiln drying applications for the cement industry use our fans to move large volumes of gas through the kiln system and thoroughly dry the cement to lumpy nodules called clinker. Many of these fans require special materials and features to withstand a wide range of operating conditions associated with these environments. Northern Fan offers the most comprehensive line of fans and can manufacture any fan to your exact specifications and performance requirements.
