Modular Design Redefines Mine Ventilation Efficiency and Availability

TLT-Turbo have released a modular mining ventilation fan concept that simplifies the planning of ventilation systems for customers while still providing the benefits that are synonymous with TLT-Turbo products including increased efficiency and lower power consumption. The Modular Mining Fan concept offers a range of modular solutions that cater to almost every ventilation requirement and aims to set a new standard for mine ventilation innovation.

The range offers a modular design that results in a well-engineered and efficient ventilation system at lower operational and maintenance costs. Customers have the flexibility to order required units and build on the system as their requirements grow – resulting in lower initial expenditure with more economical options for system expansion.

German engineering and extensive R&D have resulted in the highest product quality. This, paired with TLT-Turbo’s field-proven technology, provides a high-end pre-existing solution which means that mines will not incur the design and engineering costs that are usually associated with bespoke ventilation installations.

The modular concept makes it extremely convenient for customers in the mining industry to plan, design and optimize their ventilation systems to optimally benefit their operations. The modular approach eliminates guess work and ensures that the entire system can be planned to deliver predictable and accurate performance.

The modular design offers seven base fan sizes combined with six different hub sizes to ensure the right fit for all requirements. Numerous customizable and adaptable parts offer flexibility for specific customer needs. Add-ons have been developed for all seven base sizes allowing for modular pre-existing upgrades to meet individual requirements.

The modular components are designed to slot together, and no additional engineering is needed to ensure that different modules fit together to suit a specific operating environment. The advanced design ensures total fan efficiency of up to 90%, lowering the operating costs while maintaining full performanceThis entire offering is available at lower initial costs with short lead times for supply.

All the modular components can be manufactured simultaneously and are commissioned and installed once completed. Expansion of an existing TLT-Turbo Modular Mining Fan system is a simple process as new components are slotted into the existing system with minimal effort. Typically, ventilation systems need to grow or be upgraded as production demands increase. Where a major overhaul would usually be required, TLT-Turbo’s modular installation can be expanded by installing additional components to the existing system to scale up ventilation capacity or replace existing modules with higher specifications to optimise or upgrade the system.

With the modules being manufactured at state-of-the-art TLT-Turbo manufacturing facilities, customers can be assured of the highest quality end product. Continual monitoring, testing and quality checks are conducted at every stage of the manufacturing process. Well considered opportunities for varied combinations ensure shorter manufacturing and delivery lead times at lower costs to get your project running faster and smoother.

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.
