For this protein rendering installation, we provided a high-volume single-width backward inclined industrial fan with 304 stainless steel airstream parts, an Arrangement 9 belt drive, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety guards. This backward inclined fan moves high volumes of air and includes a non-overloading horsepower design for low-pressure applications like this one.

Industrial fans are used in multiple ways across the protein rendering process. Like most food processing applications, this installation requires stainless steel parts in the airflow. 304 Stainless Steel is corrosion resistant and lower-maintenance while withstanding high temperatures.
