In March this year IDC were tasked to offer a solution to a serious breakdown problem on a paper waste reduction fan that serves guillotines on a 24/7 book production.
The fan frequently became blocked and damaged which led to expensive downtime while repairs were carried out. After a period of evaluation and a proposal IDC were given a contract to supply and install a replacement waste reducing fan.
Special attention was given to the construction of the fan impeller. In particular the design of inlet and the cutting blades. A 33kw belt driven fan complete with ventilated sound enclosure was installed over the Easter bank holiday. It has now run continuously 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The site services manager stated they now have “peace of mind that comes from continuous production”.
