Fans are the heart of a ventilation system. Chicago Plastic systems provides all types of fans to complete your project, but the overwhelming majority are centrifugal fans. These are the most cost efficient and economical to run. We usually recommend corrosion resistant materials like fiberglass or plastic, but there are applications where a metal fan is best suited. Fan sizing, like hood design can cause a system to not work properly. Specifications like, wheel diameter, width percentage, speed and static pressure all contribute to the performance. Rely on Chicago Plastic Systems to help you select the correct fan for the job whether it's a new install, replacement fan or blower for push air.
Centrifugal fans are best suited for corrosive ventilation. Besides combining the best static performance and lowest operating costs, they are the most durable. They are available in a wide variety of sizes and configurations to fit almost any application up to 60,000 cfm
Axial fans are sometimes specified by our customers because their initial cost is lower than other types. One drawback is that they don't have very high static performance and therefore need to be carefully evaluated to determine feasibility.
Push blowers are another type of fan supplied by Chicago Plastic Systems used as part of a push-pull exhaust system. While they are one of the most overlooked parts of a corrosive ventilation system, they can easily be specified incorrectly. Let us help you with the proper selection of your blower.
