Canadian Blower Duct TubeAxial and VaneAxial Fans

Canadian Blower and Forge Duct TubeAxial and VaneAxial Fans for variable volume air handling applications utilize adjustable pitch high efficiency aerofoil aluminum propellers to provide optimum performance. Buffalo Type VPS Adjustax Fans have an internal blade pitch adjustment, which allows to bring variable air volume capability for air conditioning fans, heating and ventilating applications.

Clamshell Design Vaneaxial Fans are used primarily in applications where ready access to the interior of the fan is desired. The entire bearing assembly can be removed quickly and easily from the fan, without removing the fan from the stack. Heavy duty pillow block anti-friction bearings with split inner cylinder are standard. Clamshell design vaneaxial fans are avaiable with steel wheels and aluminum wheels.

Spray Booth Design Vaneaxial Fans are available in standard belt drive arrangement 9. These fans are designed for use in spraybooth installations, or in a variety of applications where requirements make it necessary to clean the fan periodically. Standard fan accessories include: inlet / outlet cones, inlet bell, screensfor fan, cone, or bell; belt guard, weather proof motor and drive cover, spark resitant fan construction with aluminum wheels, or steel wheels with bronze tipped blades; support legs, suspension clips, shaft seals are also available as standard options.

Spark Resistant X-proof construction on tubeaxial and vaneaxial fans is available in all aluminum airstream (AMCA A) construction; aluminum wheel (AMCA B) construction; and steel wheel with bronze tipped blades and shaft retainer (AMCA C) construction.

High temperature fan construction: upon request Buffalo vaneaxial fans can be furnished with optional high temperature construction for oven exhaust, or combusting gases exhaust applications.

Corrosion resistant construction and chemical duty construction: for corrosive environment all vaneaxial fans are available in FRP construction, as well as in 304 SS, 316 SS, or 316 L stainless steel construction. Special coatings are optional and selection is made based on the application.

Explosion Proof Ventilators - AX Series fans.
The burning of gas, oil, coal, or other combustible material requires air. When the end result of the burning is to be an efficient combustion process, in compliance with Federal and State Clean Air Act requirements, the volume of supply air must be reliably controlled. Insufficient air volume will result in wasted fuel and excessive particulate along with potentially explosive gases in the exhaust system. Too much air increases the amount of heat carried up the stack by the excess draft. Either extreme increases the cost and difficulty of controlling exhaust emissions.

Air can be supplied to the combustion process by natural or mechanical draft. Natural draft simply refers to the use of a chimney or stack to induce an upward flow of air. The stack effect pulls air into the combustion chamber. The amount of airflow depends on the stack’s height and diameter, the prevailing wind velocity, and the resistance of the burner mechanism or fuel bed itself. The demand for air-cleaning apparatus on combustion systems, particularly oil and coal, has increased the overall system resistance to such an extent that natural draft alone is seldom sufficient.
Mechanical draft refers to the use of fans or blowers to create airflow through the combustion area. When mechanical draft is incorporated, the chimney or stack is used primarily to direct the exhaust gases up and away where they will not be a nuisance. Because wind velocity and direction are less important, the combustion process can be much more carefully controlled. Mechanical draft is accomplished in one of two ways: when air is blown or forced into the combustion chamber it is known as forced draft, when the air is drawn through the combustion chamber it is called induced draft. When both forced and induced draft are used, the system is termed a balanced-draft system.

Generally, the fans or blowers used for induced-draft applications are larger and more expensive than those used for similar forced-draft applications. The combustion process itself creates gases and elevated temperatures that expand the exhaust airstream, requiring fans with greater volumetric capacity than would be required on the supply side of the combustion process to supply clean, ambient air. Also, the hot exhaust serves to lower the density of the airstream, so density corrections must be applied to the fan static pressure (SP) to overcome the actual system resistance. The fact that the exhaust or flue gases are hot often requires induced-draft fans to be of a construction suitable for higher temperatures.

The first induced-draft fans were applied to hand-fired, solid-fuel boilers where the combustion chamber had to be at a negative pressure to permit the operator to shovel in fuel. When oil and gas became primary fuel sources, boiler designers were able to seal the combustion chambers. As a result, forced draft fans became popular. The advantages were lower fan power and fans handling clean air (no corrosion or abrasion) at ambient conditions. These factors encouraged the use of airfoil fans, further reducing power consumption. This led to the almost universal use of pressurized firing in gas, oil, and pulverized coal boilers.

Forced draft fans and blowers are common for cast iron firetube and small water tube boilers. The fan or blower serves to provide the air and the velocity necessary for the fuel-to-air mixture to enter the actual combustion chamber. When used in conjunction with induced draft, the forced-draft fan is often called the primary air fan since it provides the primary combustion supply air. The induced-draft fan provides the airflow necessary to overcome system resistance and exhaust the flue gases. Some combustion systems draw hot, perhaps dirty air from other processes. Forced draft fans for such systems are called gas recircula tion fans, and must be selected for the rigorous conditions under which they will operate.

Radial-blade blower fans were at one time commonly used for induceddraft service. However, as pollution requirements have become more stringent and control devices have been added to reduce flue gas particulates (ahead of the induced draft fan), radial-tip blade or even backwardly-inclined fans have become popular due to their higher efficiencies and higher volumetric characteristics. The exception to this is where high efficiency scrubbers are used and the pressure requirements are increased to where the radial-bladed fans are more suited.
