highlight a different safety topic for each week in June. Spearheaded by the National Safety Council, the organization is focused on Emergency Preparedness, Wellness, Falls, and Driving.
Work safety is of paramount importance, especially in manufacturing plants. When accidents occur, employees are left to file workers’ compensation claims. Preventable mishaps lead to higher insurance costs for employers, and lost productivity on the floor. Thus, employers have an obligation to promote work safety among workers and colleagues.
Central Metal Fabricators, Inc. takes employee safety seriously. Our internal safety programs cascade the latest safety standards to our personnel through video demonstrations screened during monthly meetings.
Moreover, CMF runs drug-free testing for all employees upon hiring. Initial screenings help to avoid the potential pitfalls and consequences of plant machines run by any worker under the influence. Given that manufacturing equipment can prove potentially harmful to distracted employees, the importance of this program cannot be underestimated.
In addition, CMF runs continuous training programs for employees tasked with handling possibly dangerous equipment such as press breaks and large metal-bending machines. Our most experienced employees are assigned to these machines, minimizing the dangers of accidents that may be caused by a less experienced hand.
CMF also provides safety equipment to minimize potential injuries during work. For example, our team enforces the use of automated safety helmets. Face shields protect vision and any potential eye damage to welders using our welding machines.
Founded in 1948 and headquartered in Miami, FL, CMF manufactures gas turbine silencers, gas turbine silencer components, and provides gas turbine silencer services. Our other industrial products include dampers for gas turbines and turbine enclosures, boiler accessories and casings, busbars, steel hoppers, storage tanks, filtration systems, enclosure panels and doors, and acoustical-thermal panels, turbulators, and turning vanes. We also provide engineering design services for sheet metal fabrication, parts replacement, flux core arc welding, gas metal arc welding, and shielded metal arc welding services.

Gas turbines are efficient machines for transferring fuel energy into mechanical energy. This involves using compression and combustion systems, as well as turbines. To better understand how gas turbine power plants work, you must understand the primary sections and how they break down.
The Main Equipment
One of the gas turbine’s main components is the compressor. It pulls in air and compresses it using rows of blades along a shaft. The air pressurizes more with each row it passes. The shaft connects and rotates along with the main gas turbine.
Next, the air moves from the compressor into the combustion system. In this process, the air mixes with fuel injectors built into the combustion chambers. Combustion results in very hot temperatures and a pressurized gas steam that goes through the turbine with a high level of energy.
Most energy conversion happens in the turbine system. It features rows of aerofoil-section blades attached to the shaft that gets rotated by kinetic energy from hot gases. The rotating blades spin a generator to create electricity. It also encourages the compressor to inhale more air into the combustion area. Electricity is produced when the turbine shaft connects to a generator.
More on Gas Turbines
Industrial gas turbines are widely used in manufacturing. The turbine is picked according to the engine, effectively generating electricity via the compressor, combustor, and turbine.
Over time, gas turbine power plants have become dependable conversion objects. Their performance depends on factors such as the pressure of the moving air (from compressor to combustion system), the temperature of the hot gas (leaving the combustor), and the exhaust gas temperature (escaping the turbine).
Trust in the Experts
Energy conversion efficiencies are complex phenomena. In-depth knowledge of a system is necessary to manufacture parts that are dependable and efficient within the overall plant. Thus, a gas turbine needs to be made with quality parts by experts in the field.
Our Central Metal Fabricators team manufactures precise, strong industrial products to use in accordance with combustion turbine units. Our product line includes dampers for gas turbines and gas turbine enclosures, enclosure panels and doors, exhaust diffusers, and more. Our reputation for crafting gas turbine silencing equipment dates back to 1948. At CMF, we also assemble and install parts properly for your convenience.
