Exhaust Fans: Centrifugal Upblast

The centrifugal upblast fan is the industry standard for effluent air extraction. Originally for the commercial kitchen industry, these fans have backward inclined blades that utilize centrifugal properties to remove the grease and particulates from the air stream while preventing excessive build-up on the blades. The wind band of these units is designed to eject the air upward into the atmosphere while allowing the particulates to run down the inside of the wind band and collect in the 1-quart collection cup attached to the fan. They come complete with hinge kits that allow for easy cleaning without damaging the fan or surrounding roof area and an external service disconnect for ease of maintenance and safety.
