It’s here! 2017 has arrived, and during the first week back to the office, we have been discussing what lies ahead for in the industrial fans market and for us here at Axair Fans.
As many of you will be aware, the demand for industrial fans for Biomass and Biofuel applications was spiked in 2016. Increased funding in support of renewable energy generation and eco friendly fueling in the form of the renewable heat incentive scheme is set to continue throughout 2017. Innovation in industrial fan design continues for Axair by working closely with international fan manufacturers. For more information on industrial fans and their role within biofuel applications visit our specialist biomass applications page.
ATEX industrial fans continue to grow in 2017. The need for combustible materials to be handled by working fans is ever present in production. Food processing and manufacturing units utilise fans for specific parts of the production line from conveying to drying. For more information on more specific activities involved in the process visit our food processing specialist page.
Effective smoke extraction for the safety of pedestrians and building occupants is a huge concern, new regulations ensuring compulsory air changes and pressurised stairwells for escape route evacuation are of increasing importance. The growing presence of Axair’s smoke extraction range enables us to service a wider marketplace, assisting consultants with CFD studies and CAD designs to carefully specify the correct industrial fan for the smoke control system.
New accessories to facilitate easy installation of fume extraction fans continue to be introduced to the Axair range of corrosion resistant fans. Feedback from customers over 2016 confirms that using the Axair developed accessories enables a more efficient installation than that of competitors products. New developments and partnerships between Axair and our suppliers for controllers and innovative technology will further facilitate the service offered as standard.

One big aspect that all at Axair will be concerned with, is the forthcoming introduction of ERP 2018 and the continued rise of EC products over their AC counterparts. Keep an eye on future news for an indepth look at ERP 2018 and how this could influence the fan market.
