Enhanced capabilities to support safety-related fan assemblies
In addition to new fans, AZZ Nuclear offers reverse engineered replacements for obsolete legacy fans or new fans modified to be equivalent replacements for legacy fans.
Through our alliance with Clarage, a 150-year-old fan manufacturer, AZZ Nuclear offers complete fan overhaul and repair service. Obtaining spare blades or other parts on obsolete legacy fans can be a challenge, but AZZ Nuclear and Clarage offer reverse engineering services for one blade, hub or an entire fan.
Most fans are oversized for their application, thereby consuming excess power. Redesigning critical fans to draw less power not only saves cost, but may assist plants that suffer from emergency diesel generator power demand requirements. The knowledge and experience normally used to reduce a fan’s capacity can also be used to increase the capacity if needed for power uprates.
