Axial Fans

Axial fans are used in both commercial and industrial applications. Industrial axial fans, also referred to as an axial flow fan, uses a propeller to pull air into the fan and push it out in the same direction as the axial (the way it’s facing). Think of your typical commercial ceiling fan that rotates and pushes air downward to cool the area.

Axial fans are commonly used to push air out from a structure. Common applications of these types of fans are used to exhaust contaminated air or push-out fumes. 

On the other hand, they can be used to supply fresh air inside a building. Industrial fans reduce the temperature of a specific area with people and equipment inside. 

Therefore, because the general area  that must be temperature controlled is large, these fans must be heavy duty. They are manufactured to manage large volumes of air but with low-pressure due to SP (Static Pressure).

Depending on the application these types of industrial fans are typically made of steel. That being said, some applications require aluminum for spark resistance. Other applications may require stainless steel, so that it can resist the chemical reactions.

Types of Axial Fans

There are other factors to consider when deciding which type of fan to install. There are 2 main types:

Fan system design is important to consider because particular applications require the fan to be belt driven. 

This is because belt driven fans have the motor mounted on the outside. Therefore, the air coming in is not subjected to contaminants such as dirt and pollutants, it’s also able to tolerate high heat temperatures.

Trying to cool large areas with a high ceiling, such as warehouses, power plants, manufacturing facilities, and even commercial space, is no easy task. Especially when trying to be as efficient as possible. Of course, commercial applications, like cooling outside sitting areas for patrons is almost impossible without commercial fans. 

Keeping the air conditioned in these types of large structures propose challenges because HVAC operation, maintenance and equipment can weigh heavily on a company’s bottom line.

One of the most cost-effective solutions is a HVLS fan (High volume, Low Speed). These large industrial fans control the climate by generating a huge amount of airflow, however, because of the large propellers they use relatively much less energy. 

They move air throughout large areas, while controlling humidity. In the winter they can be easily calibrated to conserve warm air. That way you can enjoy the efficiency of an HVLS fan year-round.
