New High Performance Wheel
Chicago has developed a new wheel for the PBI fan.
The wheel uses heavy backward inclined steel blades for
maximum performance in hostile environments. The PBI
wheel, coupled with the streamlined inlet, virtually eliminates
vibration and reduces noise levels dramatically.
Heavy gauge steel and added drive side support
gussets contribute to extended vibration-free operation,
critical for any installation. Continuous welding of housing
assures air tight seams. The fan’s support gussets have
four built-in lifting eyes for easy balanced lifting.
Punched Flanged Outlet/Inlet
Equipped as standard, both the inlet and outlet are
flanged and punched for easier installation. The outlet
flange allows for bolting of ductwork, dampers, silencers
or screens directly to the fan. An optional universal inlet
flange that bolts to the equipment has a larger opening
and larger diameter bolt circle.
C-Face Motor Mount
Allows C-face motors to mount directly to the fan
housing, creating an airtight fit-up with no shaft seal. As
the motor weight is also centered over the wheel, stability
is improved when running in the vertical position.
Since some dust collector fans are installed outside
the facility and subject to year-round environments, the
C-face motor is bolted directly to the housing and caulked
with adhesive sealant to provide weather-proofing and
keep water out.
