PROPELLOR FANS
(Axial Fan) An air moving device in which the air flow is parallel to the shaft on which the propellor
is mounted. These fans have good efficiency near free air delivery and are used primarily in low
static pressure, high volume applications. Usually mounted in a venturi or other housing featuring
simple construction and low cost.
