Fanquip's purging fans suit almost every industry as they can be supplied with electric motors or petrol powered units.
Fanquip portable purging fans have a lightweight aluminium casing and can be supplied with 5m of heavy duty flexible ducting allowing them to be placed well away from an opening to create a fresh air environment for operators.
In situations where there is only one escape route, the units can be set up for either blowing or extracting to ensure all unwanted air is quickly and easily purged out.
The electric motor driven units have fan diameters of 300mm and 400mm, motor speeds of 2880rpm and motor powers in 1.10, 1.50 or 2.20kW. The units have free air volumes of 1200, 2200, or 2500L/s and have voltages of 1Ph 240V or 3Ph 415V
Petrol powered purging fans are available in a 300mm diameter, 3hp, 3000rpm version moving 1500L/sec air volume, or a 400mm diameter 5hp 3000rpm version capable of purging 2800L/sec of air.
Areas of application include grease traps, sewers, factories, food processing plants, livestock and primary industry operations, pharmaceutical laboratories, foundries, tunnels and excavations, mine operations, and general manufacturing and engineering businesses.
With OH&S laws cracking down on the presence of unsuitable air in every industry, equipment to provide fresh air is becoming basic and necessary.
Closed environments in particular can create a build up of fumes and gases, and if that environment is opened it can be dangerous.
Apart from merely purging, the Fanquip units can also maintain the supply of clean air for any personnel that may be cleaning the area.
