Draught fans play an important role in thermal power plants by providing critical support to the various process activities related to power generation. Coal-fired thermal power plants systems use several types of process fans. Based on the size of the boiler or steamer the rating of the fan used differs and based on the type of air flow and the process involved different types of draught fans are used in thermal power plants. An attempt is being made to explain the types of draught fans used in thermal power plants in an easy to understand format in this article.

An industrial fan is different from a general-purpose fan in many ways. A general-purpose fan is used for residential and light commercial activity. An industrial fan is used for providing a large flow of air or gas to different industrial processes in various industries.
An industrial centrifugal fan is a type of mechanical equipment used for moving air or different types of gaseous substances during the manufacturing process. The centrifugal fan is also referred to as ‘blower’ and ‘squirrel confine fan’ (since the blowers appear as a hamster wheel). These fans increment the speed and volume of an air stream with the pivoting impellers.
Industrial fans are in high demand these days in India. With the number of factories increasing along with increase in industrial output, there is a demand for different types of industrial fans. The industrial draught fans play a very significant role in the industrial manufacturing process. Draught fans are broadly classified into two types i.e. Forced Draft Fan (FD Fan) and Induced Draft Fan (ID Fan)
Process fans are one of the key components of an Industrial manufacturing plant. Industrial process fans serve a significant purpose by improving the efficiency of a whole variety of industrial activities. Having the right type and number of process fans in factory helps to not only improve efficiency and manufacturing capacity it also helps in maintaining a comfortable and safe environment for workers.
When you're running an industrial unit, you have a huge responsibility to shoulder. It is never easy to set up a manufacturing unit, which functions efficiently. Industrial fans are used to boost the capacity and efficiency of industrial processes. They are used in various processes during the manufacturing process including deaerating, industrial drying of finished products, scrubbing, providing hot air or cold air, providing combustion air for furnaces and industrial exhaust systems.
In order for an industry to function efficiently, various components are required to keep things moving in the right direction. Industrial fans occupy a place of significance, among the different types of components which are indispensable for the smooth running of factories. The same industrial fans are sometimes referred to as industrial blowers. Industrial Fans are essential for a number of manufacturing processes.Their uses range from providing a ambient work conditions to workers to creating the required air pressure for performing specific factory type activities.It would be difficult to do industrial activity without proper air circulation at an enclosed space when hundreds of people are working an entire day.
