SPECIAL ALERT: We Are An Essential Business

Industrial fans are essential in the manufacturing of critical supplies, including PPE, medical equipment and food processing. Following all state and federal guidelines to keep our employee family safe, we continue to deliver the fans and blowers, parts and service needed to keep operations running and supply chains intact. We’ve already expedited delivery of fans to enable urgent expansion of face mask production. Contact us for help with expedited delivery and/or service of the industrial centrifugal fans and blowers that support YOUR essential business.

Brine Vapor

Exhaust Fan

We replaced an industrial exhaust fan originally built by another manufacturer in this brine vapor retrofit installation. The fan is an open radial blade paddlewheel design with a backplate to protect the motor from the material in the air stream. We used AL-6XN® construction material for corrosion resistance and a stuffing box shaft seal to prevent vapor leakage.

Brine vapor processing is a component of many manufacturing processes. In this case, it was a chemical plant for plastics manufacturing. In systems like these that process abrasive materials or corrosive gases, it’s important to customize the fan design with high-density, durable materials. For the exhaust fan in this installation, we chose a stainless steel alloy called AL-6XN®, which has specific characteristics that make it resistant to seawater and other highly corrosive environments for higher efficiency, less downtime for repairs and continued productivity.

If you have a similar project, contact an application engineer to discuss it in more detail. For more information, read about radial fans for material handling.
