Exciting Development from the MVR Department!

Announcing our first MVR low flow range order!

We are excited to announce that an order has been secured for the supply of TLT-Turbo MVR fans from a globally renowned manufacturer for installation at an instant coffee production facility in Colombia.

Securing of this order comes after extensive engagement with this client over the past 4 years. The commitment and perseverance of the sales representatives involved, and the MVR team is highly commendable. Having a relationship with this client already in place means that this order may be the first step in a long-term strategic partnership.

The MVR fan that will be supplied is from the new Low Flow MVR Series. Having been in development for the past 18 months, this new addition to the MVR range is characterized by having a significantly smaller and more compact size while still delivering higher efficiencies. The development of this range is an exceptional achievement of our R&D department and product management team. Their delivery of this new range has allowed us to enter the small mass flows market which makes us more competitive.

The scope of work for the delivery, includes the supply of a 120kW drive power, approx. 4,500 kg/h mass flow, >83% efficiency high-speed MVR fan. The final installation site is an instant coffee production facility located in Medellin, Colombia.

The securing of this contract has already caught the attention of other global coffee producers and bodes well for the continued growth of our MVR department.

New Ventilation Range Expands Market Reach and Delivers Uncompromising Performance

Global ventilation fans and systems manufacturer, TLT-Turbo GmbH, has announced the launch of their new Low Flow MVR Fan Series. As a more compact alternative to TLT-Turbo’s existing larger-capacity MVR range, the new low flow series promises the same uncompromising efficiency that clients have come to expect from TLT-Turbo ventilation equipment.

Having been in development for the past 18 months, this new addition to the MVR (Mechanical Vapor Recompression) range is characterized by having a significantly smaller and more compact size while still delivering higher efficiencies.

In comparison to the existing MVR range, these fans are designed for lower mass flows at medium inlet temperatures. “The maximum speed is 6500 rpm. This limitation is mainly due to the fact that there are no faster rotating motors available in this range and for this application,” explains Mario Schmidt, Head of Business Segment Vapor Fans, TLT-Turbo. He adds that this range is ideally suited to industrial applications focused on the concentration of liquids.

The new Low Flow MVR series elegantly combines all the advantages and features of all other TLT-Turbo MVR series, including maintenance-free, long wear hybrid ceramic bearings and high efficiencies as well as speed-, temperature- and vibration monitoring. The fans are designed to achieve temperature increases up to 11°C while maintaining efficiencies of up to 83%.

“The development of this range is an exceptional achievement of our R&D department and product management team. The expansion of our current MVR offering has allowed us to enter the small mass flows market which makes us more competitive.”

The design of the new series was carefully considered, ensuring that all major customer and application requirements are met. Schmidt explains that these fans are made to deliver on performance. “The fans are available 24/7 with a wide range of operating points and high efficiencies of up to 83% depending on inlet temperatures and specified temperature increases. In addition to this, the fans are VFD controlled.”

The highest quality and safety standards are met by using only high quality and proven components. The fans’ monitoring devices are included with the installation, and all models are rigorously tested, and FEM calculated. Like their larger counterparts, the Low Flow MVR Series is manufactured using hybrid ceramic bearings that are lifetime greased and can be operated for up to 10 years without requiring maintenance. To enhance this benefit for clients, TLT-Turbo introduced an additional device to the fan’s design that allows for the bearing to be re-greased from the outside in order to further simplify maintenance and to increase the fans’ service life. “Maintenance is made even easier for our customers with the option for them to make use of our remote performance and maintenance checks.”

The new Low Flow MVR Series is manufactured at TLT-Turbo’s dedicated facility based in Germany and is available globally. An order has already been secured for the supply of TLT-Turbo Low Flow MVR fans from a globally renowned manufacturer for installation at an instant coffee production facility in Colombia. “The securing of this contract has already caught the attention of other global coffee producers and bodes well for the continued growth of our MVR division,” says Schmidt.

“TLT-Turbo is known for redefining ventilation, and this means we constantly strive to set new standards. With respect to all previous MVR series, TLT-Turbo is the first manufacturer to use hybrid ceramic bearings. In addition, all TLT-Turbo MVR fans are aerodynamically optimized and offer high efficiency. For further developments, new materials and manufacturing methods are also continually investigated to ensure that our customers benefit from the latest innovations. Our MVR range has been trusted for use in applications with stringent hygienic requirements such as highly polished impellers and housings. This, and all the other innovations showcased in the new series is the result of an almost 150-year track record in the design and production of industrial fans,” Schmidt concludes.

TLT-Turbo donates 2,500 € for a good cause

In 2020, TLT-Turbo GmbH in Zweibrücken has again donated EUR 2,500 for good causes. Part of the donation was handed over at Christmas, as we decided to abstain from gifts for business partners and instead donate this amount to various institutions.

A donation of EUR 350 is used to support the Diakonie Pfalz for their health retreat “Jugenddorf” (youth village). Every year, Diakonie Pfalz enables children and young people to take time out during the summer vacations. Unfortunately, in 2020 the camp could not take place due to the Corona pandemic.

The “Kinderschutzbund” (child protection agency) in Zweibrücken was supported with the purchase of a logo placement on their vehicle worth EUR 300. Their vehicle is used, for example, to distribute food to socially disadvantaged families.

A large part of the donation, EUR 600, went to “Sternenkinder” in Homburg.
“Sternenkinder” is a self-help group for families who have lost one or more children before, during or after birth. The donation is used to buy fabrics and sew clothes and wrapping blankets for the deceased children.

The Diakonie Zweibrücken was supported with a donation of EUR 600 for the project “poverty due to Corona”. The Diakonie has set up a Corona relief fund to support people during the Corona crisis. However, this relief fund is very dependent on donations, which is why we wanted to make a special contribution here.

The remaining part of the donation, namely EUR 650 went to the Heinrich Kimmle Foundation Zweibrücken. It is an independent church foundation and supports people with impairments in the areas of work, living and pre-school as well as school education. There, the contribution is used as a transitional allowance to employment for people with disabilities, but also as financial support for obtaining a driver’s license.

Adapting Field Services & Customer Experience in the Time of COVID-19

No business has been left untouched by COVID-19. The global pandemic has created an unprecedented uncertainty for business operations as numerous federal and state governments instituted travel bans and national lockdowns to mitigate the spread of the virus. TLT-Turbo has taken numerous steps to ensure operational continuity for our clients’ ventilation equipment and have launched several new platforms for the delivery of field services. These new platforms will be showcases in an upcoming webinar available by invitation to TLT-Turbo clients in Germany.

Many of our clients run the world’s most essential businesses – mines, manufacturing plants, power generation plants and processing plants. Some are facing the challenges of operating a business through unprecedented shutdowns or feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. None of us could have foreseen the scenarios we are now facing – but at TLT-Turbo we have taken steps to ensure that we are facing them together. And whatever scenario your business finds itself in today, TLT-Turbo is here to help you keep your operations running.

TLT-Turbo GmbH Continues to Show Resilience Through COVID-19 Pandemic

Following the first official response statement on the global coronavirus pandemic, TLT-Turbo has continued to prove operational resilience in its operations across the globe. This is largely due to the efforts of the TLT-Turbo global team and the implementation of various innovative measures including remote service support and virtual model acceptance testing. These factors have allowed TLT-Turbo to continue providing the high level of service that their clients have come to expect – with some formally showing their appreciation for the ways in which TLT-Turbo’s support has contributed to their operational continuity.

In the three months since TLT-Turbo released their initial COVID-19 response statement, they have announced several new contracts for high profile clients across the globe. Most notably this includes the supply of Sinter fans and two CDQ fans for various clients in China and an order for low flow MVR fans to a client in Colombia.

TLT-Turbo, Global Co-Managing Director, Rainer Redinger: “We knew that to a large extent our resilience in the face of such a significant global challenge would stem from the expertise and commitment of the TLT-Turbo global team. Securing of these orders demonstrates the perseverance of the sales representatives and engineers involved and speaks to the reliability of our products on the market. These same factors will ensure that we endure through the COVID-19 pandemic and current global market downturns and emerge stronger than ever.”

Travel restrictions imposed around the globe, posed a challenge to the delivery of
TLT-Turbo services and fans. TLT-Turbo implemented Remote Service Support that facilitates remote service, maintenance, repairs and troubleshooting. Using an audio-visual connection that allows the exchange of images and data between TLT-Turbo experts and customers, TLT-Turbo’s team can guide customers through the process of making simple repairs and adjustments in real time.

Along with this, to facilitate the delivery and commissioning of new fans, TLT-Turbo’s R&D team have also rolled out Virtual Model Acceptance Testing. TLT-Turbo made aerodynamic model acceptance measurements and final acceptance testing available for customers to attend virtually. They are now done through software that combines video conferences with a connection to virtual reality on smartphones, tablets, smart glasses or a video screen.

“This is a major advancement in the digitalization of our offering. In future, even as we move into a post-COVID world, these platforms will remain an alternative option to conventional model acceptance testing, trouble shooting, repairs, inspections and many other services for all customers as it saves them both time and money,” Mr. Redinger explains.

These efforts add to the crucial support of the regional TLT-Turbo offices across the globe that are starting to re-opening following various national lockdowns.
TLT-Turbo Africa has been operational through the continuing national lockdown in South Africa that was instituted on 26 March 2020. They have been registered as an essential service which allows for manufacturing activities with 30% of their usual staff complement per shift. “We are currently on a two-shift system of six hours per shift for operational staff. Even with limited staff, we have managed to make key deliveries to our customers,” says TLT-Turbo Managing Director, Christo Gelderblom who goes to explain that strict hygiene and safety protocols are being adhered to and that non-essential staff are still working from home. “We have received a number of orders since we returned to work and are expecting a few more in the weeks to come as South Africa’s lockdown alert levels are being lowered.”

In Korea, TLT-Turbo representatives have been able to recommence visits and meetings at client sites while adhering to strict hygiene, prevention and social distancing measures. The regional office has reported that they are almost back to business as usual while taking every measure to protect the health and safety of their staff. Their manufacturing facility continues to be fully operational.

Currently, TLT-Turbo manufacturing facilities in the USA, Germany and China are also operational. TLT-Turbo Global Co-Managing Director, Xiongfei Zhao: “We have done everything in our power to keep our processes running as smoothly as possible. We have complied with all required hygiene regulations and have developed our own additional safety measures to ensure that our staff are taken care of. We have also ensured that our customers are able to reach us by making our team accessible on electronic platforms as they continue to work from home.”

This accessibility has allowed TLT-Turbo’s customers to continue to rely on the products and services that play a crucial role in their daily operations. Several customers have sent in words of gratitude for the role that TLT-Turbo’s products and support have played in keeping them going.

Currently, TLT-Turbo continues to encourage concerned clients and suppliers to reach out their TLT-Turbo representatives in the various regions. Locate your nearest point of contact here.

Model Acceptance Tests Go Virtual!

An important task carried out by TLT-Turbo is the conducting of aerodynamic model acceptance measurements and final acceptance tests in the presence of our customers. These tests demonstrate the aerodynamic performance of TLT-Turbo fans on a model test stand to meet the required fan characteristics.

Model tests are significantly cheaper and less complex than conducting tests on a full-size performance test stand (FSPT) such as the one that TLT-Turbo has set-up in Chengdu, China. TLT-Turbo has various model test stands at their facilities in Germany and is able to test different diameters of axial fans, centrifugal fans and full-size jet fans.

Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not possible to host clients for witnessing tests at our R&D center in Zweibruecken. In an effort to continue providing excellent customer service and for current orders to move ahead, TLT-Turbo has found a solution – making acceptance tests available for customers to attend virtually!

Inspired by the global movement to move physical business processes such as meetings and inspections online, TLT-Turbo started looking for a software solution that would allow them to conduct virtual aerodynamic model acceptance tests.

The solution was found through software, which allows classic video conferences to be combined with a connection to virtual reality on smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, or a video screen. This makes it possible for participants in a teleconference meeting to see and experience everything as if they were nearby.

“Our team has run through the process and rehearsed internally to make sure that we are ready to fully cover every aspect of the testing and we are ready to offer this service to our clients to allow work and delivery of fans to continue,” says Dr. Sebastian Fleder, TLT-Turbo Product Manager for Aftermarket and Services. “This is a major advancement in the digitalization of our offering. In future, even as we move into a post-COVID world, this model will remain an alternative option to conventional model acceptance testing, trouble shooting, inspections and many other services for all customers as it saves them both time and money.”

TLT-Turbo India Doing their Part to Alleviate COVID-19 Burden

Like the rest of the world, India is facing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects of their own national lockdown. Those living below the poverty line as well as day workers and laborers have been particularly hard hit by the nationwide lockdown that started on 23 March 2020.

India’s Prime Minister addressed the nation and requested support for those in need. To facilitate donations, a special PM Office bank account was set up for individuals and organizations who wished to play their part in helping the nation’s needy.

While working from home, the team at TLT-Turbo India started discussing the unthinkable challenges facing their less fortunate fellow citizens and decided that they wanted to step up. In a moving and overwhelmingly generous gesture, the entire team decided to donate one day’s salary to the cause. This response on an individual level inspired TLT-Turbo India management to match their donations as a company. Together they reached a total amount of just over 100 000 Rupees (1300 Euro) which was deposited into the PM Office account.

“We felt a responsibility towards this cause. We are grateful to be able to continue working from home when so many others cannot work at all. The TLT-Turbo India team working from home are in contact every day and through our discussions it came to light that this cause was something we were all thinking about. I know that this amount may not be as high as some donations by larger companies, but our intent and philosophy is always do what we can to care for others and I am so proud of my team for making this happen,” says Pankaj Sohoni, TLT-Turbo India Managing Director.

Global Managing Director, Rainer Redinger applauded TLT-Turbo India for their generosity and sense of responsibility toward their fellow citizens. “Civic duty and pride are near to our hearts at TLT-Turbo. This donation demonstrates this part of our corporate culture perfectly. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the various lockdowns that have been put in place across the world, the TLT-Turbo Global Team continues to show not only astounding resilience and motivation but also empathy for those who have been hardest hit. I would like to personally thank TLT-Turbo India for leading by example and for showing the world how unified action and solidarity can make a difference.”

TLT-Turbo GmbH Announces Contract for Wuhan Sinter Project

TLT-Turbo GmbH, global ventilation fans and systems manufacturer, today announced its success in winning a contract for the supply of Sinter fans, including complete drive system, to Baosteel for the Wuhan Sinter Project. The announcement comes amid the COVID-19 global health crisis and further indicates improving business conditions in Wuhan.

TLT-Turbo has secured a contract together with consortium partner, TMEIC (Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation) for the supply of two complete fan systems to Baosteel. Headquartered in Shanghai, China, Baosteel is globally recognised as one of the most competitive iron and steel companies with the highest level of modernization in China.

TLT-Turbo’s delivery on the project will include the supply of two sinter waste gas fans as well as the accompanying drive motors, frequency converters, transformers, switch gears and control panels. TLT-Turbo will also fulfil the role of consortium leader for the project and will take the lead on commissioning and final installation of the fan systems.

“This newly secured contract adds to the growing list of projects that TLT-Turbo has been a part of in China recently – each of which reflects our excellent teamwork and long-term success,” says Ma Le, TLT-Turbo Sales Representative based in the region.

Ma Le adds that this is the fourth contract that TLT-Turbo has won since establishing a working relationship with Baosteel in 2013. Since 2013, TLT-Turbo has delivered a total of eight sinter fans to Baosteel – one of which is the largest operational sinter fan in the world.

“The success of this relationship is built completely on teamwork. The fact that Bao Steel always returns to TLT-Turbo to order our fans also speaks highly of our commitment of quality. The resilience shown by the TLT-Turbo global team is evident in their continued success in securing contracts in this region,” adds Ralph Mansius, TLT-Turbo GmbH Sales Liaison.

A Growing Presence in China

In total, TLT-Turbo has won contracts for 18 Sinter Fans since entering the Sinter market in China in 2012. Aside from their continued success with Baosteel, TLT-Turbo also signed an additional two contracts in China’s sinter market this year.

Another notable success coming out of the region is the continued business in the CDQ (Coke Dry Quenching) market. In 2020, TLT-Turbo has won contracts for a total of 10 CDQ Fans. Says Mansius: “This proves that we are a market leader in our field – and that we are committed to working together as a global team to keep up momentum throughout the COVID-19 crisis.”

Enduring Through the COVID-19 Crisis

Ma Le acknowledges that with the COVID-19 crisis still evolving in all parts of the world, it is to be expected that some orders might be coming in slower than usual. “Businesses across the world will all be bracing for its long-term effects. However, we strongly believe that through the combined efforts of the regional TLT-Turbo teams across the world, we will be able to endure through this crisis and for long after it has passed. We are sincerely thankful to every member of the TLT-Turbo global team for the part they have played in our continued success and resilience. We have all risen to the challenge of temporarily changing how we do things – but this is just another example of Ventilation Redefined.”
