Heavy Industry Market


Plant personnel safety—from less than optimal internal air quality or awkward, risky maintenance and repair procedures—are top priorities.


Poor design or incorrect application not only impacts airflow performance consistency; it also wears out bearings, shafts, blades and motors and can lead to catastrophic failures.

Maximizing uptime of critical processes means improved performance and throughput, avoiding lost revenue.


Operating budgets are thin, with little resources to cover unplanned or unexpected maintenance, repair or replace costs.

Heavy Duty fans for tough environments

We design our fans for the heavy duty industry using design safety factors that are twice the competitive norms for critical components (e.g., props, bearings, shafts, etc.). The heavier design of our fans means they can take more abuse than lesser-designed products. In situations where lightweight fans fail (e.g., heavy dirt, high moisture, lack of maintenance).
