A hardwood flooring manufacturer contacted Horner about repairing a 50” Fan. With help from Indianapolis Field Service, Horner Fan and Fabrication had a 3 day window to repair this 50” fan wheel. This was the main dust collection fan for the plant. The structure around this fan made it very challenging to remove. The fan is inside the plant with structural steel above the fan and a concrete wall on two sides. After removing the insulation and the inlet fitting there was about 36” of space to maneuver this heavy wheel and 2-15/16” shaft out of the building. Once in the shop a new shaft was fabricated and all of the blades were repaired and beefed up. Then the wheel was balanced along with the new shaft. We were also able to locate and install (2) new 8 groove sheaves (not in the original scope) We got them back up and running on the 3rd day. The customer is very happy with the service Horner provided, great job to all involved in this project!
