Eye on the Shop Floor

For over fifty years Halifax Fan has been designing its own range of industrial centrifugal fans to meet the needs of Industry worldwide. Keep up to date with the latest on our shop floor.

Halifax Fan have a long history of supplying world-famous confectionery and snack brands like Cadbury, Walkers, Mars, and Nestle.

These leading brands demand the highest quality, unsurpassed reliability and absolute safety.

One of our simplest of fans a ‘Biff’ or Bifurcated fan is often used in the food industry as they have a simple in-line axial design and with a motor that is on the outside of the air-flow. The air flow forks (bifurcates) around the motor. This allows the fan to carry gasses like steam or oil mist from fryers that would normally corrode a motor housed in the airstream.

This Stainless-Steel Biff was further modified for use where there is the possibility of explosive dust mixtures present. This is covered by the ATEX directive and requires us to take several steps to ensure that the fan has a reduced risk of ignition sources. This includes the use of brass spark minimising features and the fitting of a vibration sensor.

  • 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.
