• A major upgrade of the hydraulic circuitry, controls and load distribution system to
produce an even and controlled distributionof pressure across the whole plate area
• The installation of dedicated, computer-monitored control panels that both prevent either
under or over compression and provide an automatic packingrecord for each element basket
• As a result of the application of these latest processes, we can ensure that the customer
will receive consistent, high-quality element baskets that will bebest suited to withstand
the rigours of through life operation. Such attention to detail inevitably results both in
improved first quality and extended element life.
FULL SECTOR BASKETSSurePack Elements® can be assembled and welded to create full sector baskets matching
the thermal performance obtained by more traditional manufacturing processes, but with
extended elementlife as a result of the improved packing process. The result is consistent
superior quality packing, giving reduction in element vibration as a result of steam
sootblowing, and reduction ofelement movement in horizontal heaters.
EFFICIENTLY MEETING OUR CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS
In 1923 Howden and Fredrik Ljungstrom formed a joint venture to
develop the recently invented rotaryregenerative heat exchanger
for use in the rapidly expanding electricity supply industry. Since
those early pioneer days the company now has thousands of air
and gas heaters installed inmore than 70 countries around the world.
With a range of over 45 element designs and advanced manufacturing
facilities we can efficiently meet our customer requirements with the
security ofproven performance. Wherever our customers are located,
a Howden office is close at hand. With engineering and sales offices
throughout the world, we understand and satisfy local market needs.
