Draft 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 draft fans are used in thermal power plants. An attempt is being made to explain the types of draft fans used in thermal power plants in an easy to understand format in this article.

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.
An industrial plant or factory is a complex operation involving many people, equipment and processes. There are a wide variety of industries producing different types of industrial goods. Interestingly, some industrial equipment are used by most industrial plants. An industrial Centrifugal fan is the kind of equipment that is found in almost every factory.
Industrial ventilation is a way to control or reduce contact with airborne pollutants like dust, fumes as well as vapours. A normal ventilation system can also be attained naturally by opening a door or a window but in an industry, it can be attained by means of blowers or fans. These are designed such that they can move a significant amount of air at a certain set velocity that is adept in removing the detrimental pollutants. The size of such ventilation system varies with the size of the industry but the basic principles remains the same.
Industrial ventilation is an essential part of working industrial plant. For many manufacturing companies a good industrial ventilation system may protect their employees from exposure to toxic fumes, gases or other type of pollutants produced in their manufacturing process. Good and well-designed industrial ventilation is used In order to ensure the safety of its employees and provide a good working environment. Industrial ventilation helps in removing pollutants in the air from inside an industrial unit and exhausts it outdoor. The process simply involves installation of a system that supplies fresh air while exhausting the polluted air.
In India is the 6th largest economy by the conservative nominal GDP method and the 3rd largest by Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) method. Since 2015, it has become the fastest growing major economy. At 132 crore people it is a large market that demands various industrially manufactured products. With growing incomes, the Indian customers have been fueling growth of various products.
With the rapid increase in population in different parts of the world, there is a higher demand for food production and processing. Food processing industry has gained much prominence recently because of the increase in demand for processed food. Since the industry is highly competitive, it is necessary to be efficient in operational processes. Here, the challenges are quite different from other industries because there is higher emphasis on maintaining the standards of hygiene and quality. Best practices, higher grade ingredients and right machinery are very important to maintain quality in production. While the quality of ingredients determines the taste of the food produced, proper machinery helps in processing and preserving it. Among manufacturing equipment, industrial centrifugal fans and blowers play a major role in several operations. From general ventilation to material transportation, dust collection, drying, cooling & storage, these fans are widely employed across several applications.
