At Halifax Fan it is not unusual for employees to receive a 25 Year service recognition award, some have even received a 40-year service award.
Industrial fans are by their very nature, heavy, voluminous and largely made of steel. This means that shipping costs, either to the OEMs, such as oven manufacturers, who will fit them to their machines or to end users like the steel industry, can add enormously to the quoted cost. Additionally, shipping globally can add substantially to the price because of international tariff barriers. Fans shipped into the USA for example, attract a 27% tariff. US built fans avoid this penalty completely.
Outokumpu were keen to develop current technologies that would improve value in service and were not just looking a like-for-like replacement for an excessively worn impeller. They wanted to have a fan with the improved ability to resist the dust, giving the benefit of improved reliability, performance and reduced costs.
