Centrifugal flow fans operating with a wheel peripheral velocity in the range
of 170,000 feet per minute are designated as industrial fans. Industrial fans
are commonly built as AIR HANDLER and MATERIAL HANDLER.
- Air-handling fans -- designed to move air or gas at high pressure.
Application of these fans are in the areas of pollution control and other
- Material handling fans -- these fans are designed for use in air

or moderate air volume at pressure ranging up to 50 in. of water. Used
widely in pneumatic conveying, blast furnace, air bearing surfaces in
