Brine Vapor

Exhaust Fan

We replaced an industrial exhaust fan originally built by another manufacturer in this brine vapor retrofit installation. The fan is an open radial blade paddlewheel design with a backplate to protect the motor from the material in the air stream. We used AL-6XN® construction material for corrosion resistance and a stuffing box shaft seal to prevent vapor leakage.

Brine vapor processing is a component of many manufacturing processes. In this case, it was a chemical plant for plastics manufacturing. In systems like these that process abrasive materials or corrosive gases, it’s important to customize the fan design with high-density, durable materials. For the exhaust fan in this installation, we chose a stainless steel alloy called AL-6XN®, which has specific characteristics that make it resistant to seawater and other highly corrosive environments for higher efficiency, less downtime for repairs and continued productivity.
