So, how do you select a fan anyway?

What is required to select a fan?

When selecting a fan, Illinois Blower should be made aware of the following requirements:

  • Flow and pressure at a given density.
  • Airstream constituents and contaminants
  • Temperature at operating point; rapid temperature change
  • Airflow range and means of control
  • Level of spark resistance
  • Sound level
  • Size limits
  • Airflow velocities
  • Balance; vibration levels
  • Maintenance
  • Physical support
  • Cost
  • Anything else that the customer may feel important.

Remember, identifying a suitable and reliable fan is a shared process. The more information that Illinois Blower receives, the better we are able to satisfy your short and long term requirements.
