Forward Curved Fan Construction

At ProcessBarron, new mechanical draft fans are performance rated in accordance with AMCA standards, rigorously tested and quality checked for proper rotating assembly operation (ANSI standards), rotor resonance properties, and overall fan performance.  Our rugged industrial fans are designed for longevity and efficiency in air, gases, dust and material handling applications.

The performance curve of a forward curved fan is unique in that it has two points of peak pressure generation. While highly efficient, this design should not be used in applications where materials can accumulate in the curve of the blade and cause imbalance.

ProcessBarron’s industrial fans are fabricated from materials including Hastelloy, ASTM 36, high strength carbon steels – A514/A517 and exotic alloys to endure long-lasting use in high temperature, high pressure, corrosive environments.

Common mechanical draft fan accessories/options include:

  • Inlet & outlet dampers
  • Expansion joints
  • Access doors
  • Standard NEMA Motors
  • Spark-resistant construction
  • Extended life bearings
  • Special coatings
  • Silencers & insulation
