Industrial Fan Industries & Applications

Halifax Fan’s bespoke engineered fans meet the demanding needs of pretty much every conceivable centrifugal fan application across the widest possible spectrum of industries worldwide.

DRYERS

Halifax Fan can meet the needs of every dryer application. Dryers basically use dry air to remove moisture from a product, either as a batch or continuous flow process. The web-based process employed in the manufacture of paper, board and wallboard require the continuous high speed flow of heated air over the product to reduce its moisture content.  Both ID and FD fans can be employed to control the humidity and temperature in rotary drum and spray dryers.  Bi-directional fans reverse airflow in curing rooms where a longer drying cycle is required to process the entire contents of the space.  Batch drying of smaller quantities may need simple recirculation fans to pass heated air through the drying pans. On all of these applications efficiency is an important consideration along with the selection of the right material to ensure long-term reliability.

  • Halifax Fan beat international tariffs by building locally

    Industrial fans are by their very nature, heavy, voluminous and largely made of steel. This means that shipping costs, either to the OEMs, such as oven manufacturers, who will fit them to their machines or to end users like the steel industry, can add enormously to the quoted cost. Additionally, shipping globally can add substantially to the price because of international tariff barriers. Fans shipped into the USA for example, attract a 27% tariff. US built fans avoid this penalty completely.
