Industrial Centrifugal Fans differ from Industrial Axial Flow Fans in the way they move the air. A Centrifugal Fan (or Centrifugal Blower) typically has one of seven types of wheels that draws the air into the inlet of the blower housing, through the wheel, and discharges it at 90 degrees out through the discharge of the housing. An Axial Flow Fan or Industrial Axial Fan uses a propeller to draw the air into it and discharges it in the same axial direction. An "air moving device" with a propeller is typically referred to as a Fan, while one with a wheel is typically referred to as a Blower.Contact a Sales Engineer – over 170 across the USA and Canada to assist you
Making the proper centrifugal fan selection, involves considering the following conditions the blower will be subjected to:
1. What is the airflow that will be required?
5. What is the altitude the blower will be operating at?
Most Centrifugal Fans (Blowers) can be used for any of the above parameters except, if conveying material, a blower with a forward curve (squirrel cage) wheel is not suitable. The best centrifugal wheel type for conveying material is a radial wheel or an open radial wheel. If the material you will be conveying is log and stringy, like paper trim or fibers, only an open radial wheel should be used. The best models to use, for conveying material through the fan, are Models PB, SPB or PBS Pressure Blowers and Model RBE Radial Blade Exhauster. Models HDBI (Heavy Duty Backward Inclined Blowers) and HDAF (Heavy Duty Airfoil Blowers) are also used in many dust collector applications where the blower is on the clean side of the dust collector.
If the blower will be used to create suction, pressurization, cooling, combustion air, forced ventilation or general ventilation, then only the first seven conditions above need to be considered. After the first seven conditions are known, the blower selection will be based on the type of blower that is best suited by performance, design and features that best meet those conditions.
Cincinnati Fan does not manufacture any consumer or residential type centrifugal fans. But, we do manufacture 14 models of Centrifugal Fans (Blowers) that are designed and constructed as industrial type. We manufacture centrifugal blowers in the ¼ to 125 horsepower range, with airflow capacities from 50 to 51,900 CFM and static pressures from 1/8” to 78” SPWG.
While a list of all the applications our Centrifugal Fans are used for would be extremely long, the most common include:
