Fiberglass Direct Drive Bifurcated Duct Axial® Fan is ideal for a variety of corrosive applications. It provides an excellent alternative to belt-drive fans, because the direct-drive motor requires minimal periodic maintenance. The units can be installed in any position, from vertical to horizontal. Standard sizes are 24 through 48".
Standard fiberglass components are made of solid molded fiberglass consisting of corrosion resistant vinyl ester resin and glass fibers. All nuts, bolts and fasteners in contact with the airstream are stainless steel and encapsulated with fiberglass. Resin has a Class I flame spread rate of 25 or less. External fiberglass housing surfaces are protected with a minimum 10-mil UV resistant resin coating.
Solid one-piece molded fiberglass construction, electronically balanced on the unit at the operating speed to ensure vibration free operation.
