Industrial Fans & Commercial Blowers
The most basic kind of industrial fans are simply scaled up versions of the fan that you see on a desk. The difference of having more power of course means that the fan is more effective in pushing air through a larger environment without problems. A fan blade size of 24 or 20 inches means that these fans are more than capable of keeping a worker cool during the hottest part of the day.
You can choose from portable or fixed industrial fans. The advantage of a portable model is that it can be moved and used in the area where it is most required. As a worker moves from one place to another, they can take the fan with them. The major disadvantage of these fans is that they have a trailing wire which if not properly placed can be a tripping hazard for other workers. A fixed fan can generally be a little more powerful than a mobile model of the same size because it is fixed into place and more stable, although it is a less flexible solution in a dynamic environment.
For larger work areas, industrial blowers are a more appropriate tool for ensuring fresh air supply through the whole workplace. These stand alone fans, which boast fan blades more than 36 inches are ideally suited to an area where a lot of cooling is required. Blowers can generally be moved simply from one position to another as needed, making them perfect for an environment that can change rapidly.
In order to properly vent noxious gasses and dusts from an environment such as a paint shop or machining centre, proper precautions must be taken and the correct filtration should be used. An industrial fan used for extracting dust or solvent fumes from a building must by law be connected to the proper air filters. These will take any harmful chemicals and dirt out of the air as it flows through the system and ensure that the air released into the environment meets with all appropriate guidelines.
When an industrial fan or industrial blower is combined with a high performance air conditioning system, the work place environment will be improved for all staff. A cooler working environment will generally result in higher levels of productivity and activity amongst staff. This means that investing in the proper equipment to ensure a comfortable environment for staff will have sound implications towards increasing performance as well as improving morale and maintaining adherence to any appropriate legal and federal guidelines on air quality.
