TLT-Turbo Africa has developed products and services to embrace our customers’ operating environments and the on-going demand for innovative, efficient and financially sustainable solutions.
TLT-Turbo Africa offers turnkey services which incorporate consultation, design, manufacturing, installation, construction, commissioning and performance testing as well as operational support to our clients and as well as ensuring industry compliance. Our fans address performance expectation in terms of the stringent and legally regulated noise requirements, while attempting to address efficiency, long life and reduction in energy use.
Our fan design and manufacture incorporates the innovations emerging from the TLT-Turbo Composites Centre of Excellence. This gives our products the advantages of advanced materials that reduce overall system mass by as much as 70%, improve wear characteristics, reduce maintenance needed on mechanical components and improve aerodynamic efficiency. Noise Reduction, Aerodynamics and Performance Efficiency are the key features and prerequisites that we take into consideration for every fan built.
TLT-Turbo Africa’s product range includes solutions for mining ventilation, main surface ventilation and below ground ventilation. We also manufacture industrial and process fans for use in a wide variety of applications including those in filtration, cement, steel and mineral processing operations as well as supplying specialised fans for thermal power stations.
Flow adjustment through variable blade pitch in motion:
Optimising the efficiency is one of our specialties. We can draw upon a comprehensive experience and a wide range of development results that have been tried and tested in the field. Combined with blade adjustment, these results allow for the implementation of wider operating ranges with reduced power consumption.
Speed control to regulate the flow:
Speed control has long been standard practice for our wind tunnel or tunnel ventilation systems and is now also entering the power plant fan applications. Blade adjustment and speed control are combined and as result, operators benefit from the lowest possible power consumption.
In addition to supplying brand new ventilation solutions to the mining, process and power plant industry, TLT-Turbo Africa is also capable of completely upgrading existing plants. These projects typically apply to improving efficiency, increasing capacity and power savings as well meeting the increased need to fulfil the requirements of upgraded gas cleaning systems (such as electro-static precipitators to bag filters). In this case, TLT-Turbo Africa would utilise our in-house and TLT-Turbo retrofit technology to upgrade existing fans.
To comprehensively verify the design and provide detailed performance data, each fan prototype is tested according to British Standard 848 before going into production. Each production fan is quality checked and dynamically balanced.
