high temperature multi blade fanMULTIBLADE FANS

The MULTIBLADE "squirrel cage" type "M" fans are usually specified for large volumes of flow against low to medium static pressures. There are several variations used for blade configuration; radial blades, backwardly inclined blades, and forward curved blades. We use the forward curved blades as they deliver the same volume of air, at reduced RPM, than the other versions. The reduced RPM is important as this yields lower stresses in the wheel allowing higher temperatures to be used for the air voluem specified. This series of fans has been developed and refined over the lifetime of the company and is suitable for continuous heavy-duty applications involving high temperatures with capabilities up to 1780 degrees F. We offer the multiblade in many configurations of housing fans and cartridges which match your requirements. The MULTIBLADE fan is the most common type used in the heat treating industry, however if there is dust in the air stream that could build up, our Radial Blade Fan should be used.

Construction Features

WHEEL
Heavy Duty -- constructed of high strength aluminum with riveted connections. Blades are also tack welded to side plates, reducing rivet wear. Taper lock hub makes wheel easily removable. Aluminum construction is standard for operation up to 180 degrees F. Steel and Stainless Steel are also available. Wheel is staically and dynamically balanced to assure smooth operation. NOTE: Fan wheel is suitable for handling clean air only. HEAVY-DUTY HOUSINGS
All welded, heavy-duty steel housings with thick side plates on both sides of housing enable housing to be field rotated at 22 1/2 degree increments to suit most required discharge positions. Standard fans are supplied with gasket between housing and side plates. Housings are reversible for required rotation. For gas tight construction see "Modifications." 

 DIRECT DRIVE ARRANGEMENT
Wheel is mounted directly on motor shaft. Maximum operating temperature is 180 degrees F. in arrangement 4. 

Modifications

HEAT FANS Type T Pressure Blowers are available up to 600 degrees F. operation in Arrangement 8 or in belt drive arrangements. Units require steel wheels and special bas construction to accomodate a shaft cooler and guard. Units can be furnished with a 600 degree F. shaft seal (radial lip type), however water cooling is required. 
AIR-TIGHT
CONSTRUCTION
Type "T" Pressure Blowers can be furnished with air-tight construction in Arrnagement 8 or in belt-drive arrangements. Air tight units have solid back fixed housings (not rotatable), shaft seals (see accessories), and inlet plate gaskets. Maximum temperatures for air-tight units: Type "T" with aluminum wheel: 180 degrees F. Type "T" with steel wheel: 225 degrees F. NOTE: Air tight units are not absolute seals. 
SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION Type "T" Pressure Blowers can be furnished for applications where corrosion or elevated temperatures above 600 degrees F. are involved. Direct-drive units are also available with our "K-B" sealed motors. 


Accessories

SHAFT SEAL
Radial Lip Seals for use up to 225 degrees F. Assembly mounts against housing and is furnished with grease fittings. Note: Shaft seals do not make fan gas tight. 

 INTAKE AIR FILTER
Heavy duty dry type pleated media filters elements. Elements are reusable and and can be cleaned with commpressed air or by washing. Note: fan wheel is suitable for handling clean air only. 

SHAFT COOLER
Of high thermal conductivity and is split for easy installation or removal. Is used only on Arrangement 1, 8 and 9 fans at temperatures 201 to 600 degrees F.

Type "PF" Pressure Blowers

The "PF" Pressure Blowers are single stage blowers for applications requiring high to moderate volumes at relatively high pressures. The open type impellers are of welded construction, and statically and dynamically balanced to assure smooth operation. The housings are of heavy welded plate with suitable bracing to withstand high pressures. Typical applications are cooling, drying, exhausting, gas boosters and ejector venturi. The "PF" pressure blowers are available for corrosive or elevated temperature applications. 

 "PF" Blowers have been developed for heavy industrial uses requiring proven performance and reliability in moderate to high air volumes at relatively high pressure applications. Type "PF" Blowers are designed for capacities from 1500 CFM to 20000CFM and pressures to 62" SP. Units are available in arrangements 1 and 8 for operations up to 1260 degrees F. Features include high-efficiency wheels constructed of various alloys, heavy-duty housings and air or water cooled bearings. Single wall uninsulated housings are standard, double wall insulated housing are available. Direct driven or V-belt driven fans are available. 

 

Backward Inclined Fans

The backward inclined type "BI" fans are usually specified for medium volumes of flow against low to medium static pressures. The wheel's blades are flat and lean away from the direction of the wheels rotation. This type of fan runs at a relatively high speed. However, it is more efficient than the multiblade or radial blad fan. To move a given amount of air the "BI" fan is of a non-overloading design and is suitable for systems with fluctuating system resistance. We offer the backward incline in many configurations of housing fans and plug fans which match your requirements. The backward inclined fan is ideal for ovens, furnaces and ducted applications. 
 

Kaybee Heat Resistant, Sealed Motors

The Problem:

Application of rotational power to fans, compressors, gas pumps, mixers and other equipment operation under high temperatures has always been a presented problems. Especially in troublesome are applications invovling the handling of high temperature gases under sealed-in conditions. Bearing, seal and lubrication failures due to heat conducted through the shaft, shaft bending and general overheating of the entire drive unit due to inadequate air cooling are examples of the difficulties encountered. 

The Solution:

The K-B HEAT RESISTANT, SEALED MOTOR was developed as a direct drive unit, which copes successfully with shaft temperatures up to 2100 degrees F. under pressure, vacuum and high ambient temperature conditions. The unit is ideally suited to such metallurgical applications as carburizing, nitriding, cyanding, clean annealing and vacuum heat treating, which require both high temperature and gas tight sealing.

Boiler fans create efficient combustion by supplying a consistent and reliable ait flow. Induce Draft Fans (I.D. Fans) operate at elevated temperatures and draw the air stream through the combustion chamber, then push it through pollution control equipment. Forced Draft (F.D. Fans) or Combustion Air Fans push the air stream into the boiler combustion chamber. Multi-Fuel Burning Power Boilers are used to create steam for different power needs. Induced Draft Fans are typically AMCA arrangement 3, single or double inlet with inlet box(es). Wheels often require abrasion resistant construction with radial tip or backwardly curved blades. Combustion Air FD Fans are typicallyconstructed of carbon steel, and utilize airfoil or backward inlined blade design. Common AMCA arrangements for combustion air fans are arrangement 3 and 8, both with inlet vane or outlet damper control.
