What is a Balanced Fan? Think “Finishing the Job.”

A balanced fan must stay below specific vibration limits for safe operation while running at full speed. Excessive vibration will decrease the life of your fan and can lead to catastrophic failure.

AirPro built the following fan for a Wisconsin company that dries potatoes for use in animal feed. The exhaust fan is installed at the end of the drying process. A gradual build-up of particulate on the wheel resulted in excessive fan vibration levels. AirPro field service technicians were hired to balance the fan, restoring it to smooth operation.
