Aero Dyne Turning Vanes & Rail were engineered for structural integrity, and projects with air velocities exceeding 3,000 fpm require a superior turning vane. Although test results are unavailable for air velocities over 3,000 fpm, Industrial Design Engineers have specified Aero Dyne Turning Vanes for projects exceeding 3,000 fpm.
All feedback has been positive. An engineer working on a high pressure project recently stated “We conducted testing on the exhaust duct this week and the vane performed very well. Pushed it to the limits of our system and never had any issues with vibration.”
The precise aerodynamic design is developed through a 17-point roll-forming process using one piece of 26 gauge hot dipped galvanized steel. The two continuous internal tubes used in fastening the vane to the rail provide stiffening and rigidity unmatched by any other product.
Single wall vanes need every sixth vane welded to the runner or need reinforcements attached for ducts running over 1000 fpm. Standard double wall vanes lack positive fastening of the blades to the runner, requiring a tack weld at each end, and leaving the possibility of rattling or detaching. Only Aero Dyne Turning Vanes use a screw fastening system that creates the most positive rigid fit available.
MeadWestvaco Biomass Boiler Plant – The project will allow the mill to become self-sufficient in electrical power and steam generation and significantly reduces ongoing operating and maintenance costs.
Aero Dyne H-E-P Turning Vanes were specified by the Mechanical Design Team for their structural integrity and ability to sustain the 3000+ air velocities.
Aero Dyne Turning Vanes – Engineered for Quality
- Eliminates breakaway of flow from surfaces on suction side
- Provides velocity distribution of greatest possible uniformity
- Maintains a consistently high degree of deflection accuracy
- Continuous internal tubes provide a stiffening and rigidity to the section which prevents distortion and fluttering under airflow
- Design geometry adapts perfectly to all duct sizes, eliminating the need for two different vane sizes in the system
