HOODED ROOF FANS DRAW OUT FUMES AND DUST

17-02-2020

Fanquip has developed a range of hooded roof fans it reckons can greatly improve exhaust systems and fresh air supplies without any major adjustments to buildings operated by manufacturing and engineering companies

By strategically placing these Fanquip units, a controlled draft is achieved in factories and assembly plants where everyday heat, dust or fumes such as those from welding, forging, drilling, dipping, painting etc require removal.

Manufactured in Australia to operate in demanding climatic conditions, Fanquip’s hooded roof fans feature a heavy-duty glass-fibre base, each moulded to match one of six different popular roof profiles. This allows the fans to be installed without a fan base/upstand, greatly reducing installation time and cost.

Operating a “downdraft” discharge system allows the fast purging of dust affected internal environments in controlled fashion, with complete protection of the fan opening from the weather. And their heavy-duty construction can withstand the force of extreme weather conditions.

The hooded roof fans are strategically mounted a significant distance from the major opening of the building to create an airflow drawn in through that main opening. So when (say) a loading bay door is opened, the fans draw the fresh air in and expel the old air.

The fans are available for use with single- and three-phase supplies and with motor speeds from 720 to 1440rev/min. Options include flameproof motors, belt-drive and IP56 motors. The product can also be supplied without fan and motor to act as an exhaust relief/air intake.

Fanquip hooded roof fans are suitable for applications in factories, plant rooms, workshops, processing plants and machinery halls.
