Why is it called a Jet Fan?
These four-bladed vaneaxial fans are called Jet Fans because a high velocity jet of compressed air is ejected from the trailing edge of the fan blade like a jet engine.
These fans can be used for general ventilation in any location where compressed air is available. It can be used as a blower or exhauster.
These fans are suited for ventilation of tanks, process vessels or other confined spaces for the removal of hazrdous funes or contaminated air from welding, sandblasting an other operations. They are raed at 40-110 PSI operating pressure.
With the Hi-tech four blade design it allows for lower RPMs while still moving more air. The bearins are packed with a hi-tech synthetic lubricant for longer life. The fan blades are precision balanced and has electro polished stainless steel fan guards. Castings are heat treated to T6 aircraft aluminum specification with super duty high quality high pressure air seal for longer service..
These fans are the heaviest duty fans in the industry with guide vanes that eliminate turbulence which smooths air flow and increases efficiency. Fans have been designed by one of the foremost fan engineers in the world.
SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE TEXAS PNEUMATIC JET FANS
The unit consists of a rugged cast-aluminum housing and a cast aluminum fan blade
The shaft, bearing and fan blade are the only rotating parts, There is no torque on the shaft, as it does not transmit any power to the fan blade, as shafts normally do. The compressed air jets on the trailing edge of the blade drive the fan.
The fan has a hub and four blades which produce adequate static pressure to overcome the resistance of the system to be ventilated.
Only two of the four blades have jet outlets. All have airfoil cross sections for high flow rates.
The housings are equipped with guide vanes for better efficiency. The guide vanes neutralize the air spin past the blades and guide the air flow into an axial direction.
The housing have a smooth inlet bell for increased CFM, high efficiency, and lower noise levels.
Performance tests are conducted at at an independent test lab to AMCA Standard 210.
