Venti Oelde receives a large order for special fans

Venti Oelde has received an order from the German plant manufacturer ThyssenKrupp Uhde amounting to almost 7 million euro, for the supply of fans for fertilizer production plants in the USA. In the plants 3,500 t fertilizer are produced daily.

The scope of supply comprises special fans made from high-grade steel specifically for low temperature applications. Some of the fans are as large as a family house. They convey flow volumes up to 800,000 m³/h and are driven by motors with an output of up to 3,200 kW. In the engineering phase, seismological loads and wind speeds of up to 190 km/h had to be taken into consideration.

Venti Oelde commissioned a new performance testing facility for such large fans some time ago. The photo shows assembly of a double-inlet fan in preparation for the performance test.
