Used in supply, exhaust and transfer air distribution systems, Axial Fans are air moving devices in which the air flow is parallel to the shaft on which the propeller is mounted. Propeller blade action moves the air straight through the impeller at a constant distance from the center line. The three major types of Axial Fans are:
Propeller Fans - Low pressure, high capacity fans which basically consist of a stamped or cast wheel located in an orifice ring. They are built for either direct connection to an electric motor or for V-belt drive. These are primarily used for exhaust and air circulation. Propeller fans are generally furnished for wall mounting.
Tubeaxial Fans - Heavy duty propeller fans which basically consist of a disk-type wheel mounted in a tubular housing. These fans may be either belt-driven or connected directly to a motor. They are generally arranged for duct connection.
Vaneaxial Fans - Similar to tubeaxial fans, they basically consist of a disk-type wheel mounted in a cylindrical housing with a set of airguide vanes located either before or after the wheel. These fans may be either belt-driven or connected directly to a motor. They are generally arranged for duct connection.
