An industrial fan is a machine whose primary function is to provide and accommodate a large flow of air or gas to various processes of many industries. This is achieved by rotating a number of blades, connected to a hub and shaft, and driven by a motor.
The flow rates of these fans vary according to their application (Visit our applications page for more information). A blower is another name for a fan that operates where the resistance to the flow is primarily on the downstream side of the fan.
Most industrial fans may be categorised into one of two general types: centrifugal fans and axial fans.
