FAIRFIELD, OH — Howden American Fan Company, a manufacturer of high-quality industrial fans and blowers, announces its AF Cast Aluminum Pressure Blowers, which can be supplied with extremely short (4-7 day) lead times, making them a good choice for urgent OEM equipment replacement applications. Ideal for supplying fresh air in fume control systems, the versatile AF is also a good choice for fans used in dust collection systems, air purification units and woodworking machinery, as well as combustion air for incinerators, ovens, furnaces, kilns and dryers.
The AF cast aluminum pressure blowers are available in radial bladed, backward curved and forward curved models. The radial blade design enables some particulate in the airstream, opening up the AF’s application range. The backward curved model is the most efficient option, with a smaller fan and motor. The AF line includes a range of accessories, including flanges, slip connections, inlet/outlet screens, full cut off dampers, drains and vibration isolators. A fabricated steel construction is available for high temperature applications up to 700°F. The AF fans are offered in a variety of arrangements, including direct drive units with the most compact design and shortest lead times, as well as belt-driven units for a wider range of performance levels.
To properly size the AF fan, Howden American Fan reviews the required performance and air conditions for the customer’s application and process. Working closely with the customer, Howden selects the right size fan and wheel, the best arrangement and all necessary accessories.
