6 Howden History

7 History Technical pedigree
Development of the forced draught system for boilers (1882), dramatically reducing fuel consumption. The commercialisation of screw compressors in the 1940s and development of oil injected screw compressors. Development of the rotary regenerative air preheater in conjunction with Frederik Ljungström of Sweden in the 1920s. Forced draught system - Trials with the prototype boiler on a ship in 1883/4 fitted with the forced draught system increased output by 3% whilst reducing fuel consumption by 35%. Howden worked to develop the screw compressor with the inventor, Professor Lysholm of Svenska Rotor Maskiner (SRM), and took the first licence in 1938. Frederic Ljungstrom approached Howden in 1923 with a proposal to develop his design of rotary heat exchanger. Howden Ljungstrom preheateaters (Land) ltd. was set up 50% owned by Howden and 50% by AB Ljungstrom Angturbine. It had factories in Glasgow and USA. Samuel Davidson devised the Sirocco fan in Davidson had a factory in Belfast and his become became a main UK fan manufacturer in addition to Howden. The companies were merged in 1988. H Corblin invented the diaphragm compressor in 1916 in France. His business joined with that of Burton who made piston compressors to form Burton Corblin that has become Howden BC Compressors. The Stork brothers produced an aerofoil bladed centrifugal fan in the Netherlands in the 1940s. Developed with Howden to give 90% efficiency. Other technical firsts Invention of the ‘Sirocco’ fan with forward curved blades. Invention of the diaphragm compressor by H Corblin. The development of the aerofoil bladed centrifugal fan.

Carter was a manufacturer of industrial fans based in Birmingham. Airscrew Howden was set up as a company, subsequently disbanded with Howden taking the industrial fan ranges and Airscrew, no longer part of Howden, making small fans for aircraft and military vehicles. Major acquisition/merger took place in 1988 when Davidson of Belfast and Howden, the two dominant UK fan companies joined to form Howden Sirocco. Davidson also had companies in N America and France. A decade of acquisitions followed. Stork was the part of the Dutch company that became Howden Netherlands. Buffalo Forge became Howden Buffalo, now Howden North America. “Variax” became Howden Denmark but with some fan ranges from the Nordisk Ventilator group being absorbed by other Howden units. Burton Corblin (France) became Howden BC Compressors.# KWCA/Howden Ventiladores became Howden South America. Joy Green became part of Howden Buffalo, now Howden N America. Howden took over the compressor division of Bryan Donkin of Chesterfield. (This Donkin has no connection with Howden Donkin in South Africa) Subsequently Howden took over Aeolus in Brazil in August 2008 and Austcold in 2010
