“What kind of fans do you build?”

We get asked that question all the time. Another question – “Do you work Big Ass Fans?!”

“No, I don’t work for Big Ass Fans; but we do build big-ass fans!” The following pictures are a great representation of the size range of fans that AirPro builds.

The picture on the left is an impeller that is part of the larger products that AirPro builds. That particular wheel was built for a medical waste facility in California. The picture on the right is the smallest wheel AirPro has ever built. An abnormal project for AirPro, the wheel was built for a system display for one of our customers. Though the purpose and applications of both differed widely, you can see from the images that both impellers received the same amount of detail and precision. The following image provides another great size comparison.

So what kind of fans exactly does AirPro build?

AirPro builds industrial-duty, centrifugal fans. AirPro does not design or build axial fans. What’s the difference? The following picture represents an axial fan blade. You’ll see that the blade pulls and pushes the air in a horizontal direction. Big Ass Fans builds axial style fans (I don’t work at Big Ass Fans, remember?). The centrifugal blade (aka impeller) pulls air into the fan housing horizontally and pushes the air out at an angle (90º, 180º, etc.). Differences in performance and purpose exist; we’ll write about those differences soon.

As a 100% Employee-Owned, Engineer-Lead company, AirPro functions with an extremely high level of integrity and grit. The result is an engineering & manufacturing machine that can consistently crank out high-quality, long-lasting air moving equipment while adjusting at the drop of a hat to meet the tightest of deadlines, all while maintaining the same level of excellence. In short, AirPro employees handle every fan as if it were their own. Because we own it before you do!
