Title: Design and specification guidelines for large draft fans and systems. Final report

Abstract

This report provides guidelines to assist the specification and procurement of large draft fans for fossil fuel fired steam plants. Also included are suggestions for design improvements on fans and ducts and for upgrading the fan industry testing standards. Also included is information on upgrading fan performance and troubleshooting. The purpose is to make available guidance and conclusions based on the present state-of-the-art, with emphasis on design and performance requirements necessary to avoid or minimize many frequently observed problems. The need to design and select fans for reliable and stable performance is stressed, along with alternative designs aimed toward those objectives.
