Fan mist provides safe cooling

Supplier: Fanquip

FANQUIP's Mancooler fans use electric fan technology with water to engineer a simple yet clean and logical solution to aid overheated workers.

The key feature of the unit is its 'hydro blast' attachment which emits a very fine water vapour to quickly and significantly reduce the air temperature in very hot areas - even foundries.

The area in question can be quite an open site, but because a water mist controls the permeation of the cooling effect, the slight density of the water allows it to function in a non-sealed environment.

The entire 'hydro blast' kit includes a mist ring, nozzles, a shut off valve, filter, mounting brackets and installation instructions.

Mancooler fans are powerful yet lightweight and portable so as to be positioned and relocated anywhere that is necessary with ease.

They can also be used to generate a fresh air supply in enclosed areas. This is done by attaching 'lay flat' plastic ducting to the discharge side of the unit and delivering the air flow to the very deepest section of the enclosure so as to create a purging effect.

A sturdy and compact frame ensures that the unit does not tip over, and the entire assembly mounted on a very strong skid.

As an indication of the expected durability, Fanquip uses a tough, industrial coating on its products that readily sees them last more than 15 years in the harsh conditions of factories and foundries.

There are various Fanquip Mancooler fan units, of which the general specifications are:

  • Fan diameter: 300mm or 400mm.
  • Motor speed: 1440rpm or 2880rpm.
  • Motor power (kW): 0.18 - 1.10.
  • Free air volume (L/sec) at high speed: 1400, 1500, or 2150.
  • Voltage: Single phase 240V or three phase 415V.
