Industrial basket fans are ideal for creating air movement and ventilation in large sheds and industrial buildings. Where conventional wall mounted fans or drum fans are too small or do not move enough air then basket fans are used. The K range of basket fans are particularly useful because they have been designed and built with livestock farming applications in mind which means that as standard they are wet and dust proof to IP55, and very resistant to corrosive gasses. Where standard drum fans would rot basket fans will not. The largest in the K range is the 50″Ø size which has perhaps the longest air throw in its class of 146m and a massive air flow of 47600m3/hr. With specifications like that it is definitely for larger buildings. In industrial applications these fans are used for moving air around a building for mixing and cooling air, or additionally for inducing fresh air into the building through open doors and louvres.
