Find out more about different types, such as cross flow blowers, and the best cross flow blower suppliers in the UK.

Industrial Fans and Blowers UK

Industrial fans and blowers work by a variety of blades rotating producing the air or gas flow, run by a motor or turbine.

The difference between a fan and a blower is the later is where the resistance to the flow of air is on the downstream side of the fan.

Fans and blowers are used in combustion, ventilation, transport, exhaust systems, cooling and for many other purposes.

The electrical power production is a good example of where they are used, and food processing, cement production, and pollution control too.

What are Cross Flow Blowers?


These cross flow blowers are a specific type of blower which produces a high flow rate of air at low pressure.

They are more commonly used for large-surface air flow requirements where a blade roller causes the air to move through it twice in the radial direction.

The fan is long compared to its diameter to make the flow of air two-dimensional away from the ends.

They are used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning, as they are compact in shape, operate quietly and provide a high pressure.  The length can be adjusted to meet the flow rate requirements.
