IN THE INDUSTRY
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 blower blades, backwardly inclined blades, and
curved fan 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.
|RADIAL BLADE FANS
The RADIAL BLADE, "paddle wheel" type "P"
fans are usually specified for medium volumes of flow against medium to
large static pressures. The "paddle wheel" is considered a self
cleaning type of fan wheel. It may be used where there are various
materials or dust in the air stream. This series of fans has been developed and
the lifetime of the company. Due to its rugged construction and
structural integrity, it is suitable for continuous heavy duty
applications involving high temperatures to 2200 degrees F. depending
on fan wheel speed. We offer the radial blade in many configuerations
of housing fans and cartridges which will match your requirements.
AXIAL BLADE FANS
The AXIAL BLADE fans are usually specified
for very large volumes of flow against low static pressures. The axial
fan is defined as a unit where the air flows through the blades and is
essentially parallel to the shaft mounting. We use several variations
of fan blade configurations within our catalog. These consist of a
curved, radially convoluted curve, radial inverse curve, and propeller
type. 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 2200
degrees F. We offer the axial blade in various configurations of
cartridges and cartridges with shrouds. The AXIAL BLADE fan is the most
common type used in the aluminum annealing industry.

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
runs at a relatively high speed. However, it is more efficient than the
or radial blad fan. To move a given amount of air the "BI" fan is of a
design and is suitable for systems with fluctuating system resistance.
offer the backward inclined wheel in many configurations of housing
fans which match your requirements. The backward inclined fan is ideal
ovens, furnaces and ducted applications.
Kaybee Heat Resistant, Sealed Motors
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 K-B HEAT RESISTANT, SEALED MOTOR was
as a direct drive unit, which copes successfully with shaft
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.
