Fanquip creates the perfect climate


During summer many factories and processing plants undergo a basic refurbishment that normally involves a new paint job.

But conditions can be unpredictable to allow the paint to properly cure, making the job difficult for painting teams.

To overcome this, air movement specialist Fanquip is now using various technologies from its large stable of Australia-made fan and purging equipment to generate optimum conditions for the job site.

Portable heater fans, relocatable air circulators as well as portable purging fans are just some of the solutions that can combine to provide an ambient control solution during painting.

Creating the ideal conditions is extremely important considering painting teams often have to apply paint to a variety of surfaces, including brick, concrete, steel, wood and, at times, plastic.

By creating ambient air conditions the paint cures quickly, at a highly controlled rate. Heat and airflow can be adjusted against the general atmospheric temperature and wind flow conditions.

It amounts to faster job completion for painting companies, less downtime for plant owners and a better quality finish and lifespan of the paint.

Fanquip’s heater fans are ideal for painters, not least because they are powered by electricity rather than gas, ensuring combustibility potential is virtually non-existent.

These range in element power from the 3.0kW unit generating 10,800kJ of heat through to a 36.0kW unit with 129,600 heat energy output.

Wall mounted versions are strategically placed around a fixed workplace to provide painting teams with optimum heat levels on minimum power requirements.

Mobile heater fans are easily wheeled into position for any operation requiring its heat source to be moved according to floor plan adjustments with varying jobs.
