Product Roundup: 5 Industrial Fans
Identify products right for your application with our roundup of industrial fans.
Cooling Fan Safe for Explosive Environments
Ametek Rotron’s cooling fan is designed for use in indoor or outdoor installations where sufficient concentrations of flammable gases, vapors or dust are present. MIL-901XP meets UL, NEC and ANSI standards for equipment that will not create an ignition source in explosive environments. It has a rated life in excess of 200,000 hr and an ambient operating temperature range of -64 to 158°F (-54 to 70°C).
Fan Blade Design Increases Airflow and Reduces Noise
Horton’s computer-optimized fan blade design provides increased airflow and reduced operating noise. The swept-blade design of the WindShift WSE generates greater static pressure at slower speeds, making it suited for industrial and power-generation equipment. The blade contains UV-stabilized materials with high glass content. The modular fans are available in diameters of 24 to 41” (610 to 1040 mm) and 2.44 to 5.94” (62 to 151 mm) pitch widths.
Size a Cooling Tower Fan Using Online Tool
Glocon Inc.’s online fan selection program is intended to help prospective users find an industrial fan suitable for an application. Swifter CTX Series is suited for cooling towers, air-cooled heat exchangers and evaporators. Fan sizes in the industrial axial fiberglass fan line range from 5 to 40’ diameter in four- to 16-bladed configurations. The cooling tower fans incorporate high efficiency airfoils. The fan blades are molded into a single-piece contiguous composite blade consisting of an outer fiberglass shell with an inner, high density polyurethane foam core.
Molded Axial Flow Fans Resist Corrosion
Constructed of lightweight, corrosion-resistant, fiberglass-reinforced vinyl ester resin, Hudson Product Corp.’s Tuf-Lite III incorporates its Tuf-Edge leading-edge protection and UV protection. The individually balanced, interchangeable blades can be installed in any of the company’s hubs. Standard sizes are available from 5 to 40’ in diameter for heat exchanger and cooling tower applications.
Mixed-Flow Fans Deliver Cabinet Cooling
Continental Fan Manufacturing’s Model MID mixed-flow in line fans utilize a patented mixed-flow impeller with adjustable-blade geometry. Suited for cabinet cooling and process ventilation applications, the fan is available in diameters from 12 through 24” and in capacities ranging to 5,340 cfm. The fans include a steel housing with corrosion-resistant paint and are available with multiple blade and mounting settings.
