Industrial Fans | Future Thinking

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 wi...


All About Smoke Control

We've had a heavy focus on Smoke Control over the past year and have continually informed our audience about new legislation, new products and kept our technical knowledge in tip top shape. This week we thought what better time to recap on some of the top five questions we should know about Smoke Control. In the event of a fire, what are the main risks associated with Smoke? The main risks associated with smoke are; Toxicity; including lack of oxygen, inhalation of toxic gases and suffocating gases. Heat; including internal ...


Focus On Smoke, Pressurisation & Evacuation

At Axair Fans, we're always looking at ways to add value for our customers, whether it be improving ventilation systems, reducing costs or offering educational seminars to improve knowledge of particular subjects. One focus subject is standard EN 12101-6, Pressurisation of Staircases. Since the publication of EN 12101-6, familiarity of the standard has progressively increased along with designer and installers understanding of pressurisation systems.  In spite of this, there are some aspects of the standards which are not taken into account, f...


Understanding Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

This week we discuss how CFD can be used to specify effective smoke control solutions, What is CFD? Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is the use of mathematics, physics and computational software to visualise how a material flows. It also looks at how the material affects objects as it flows past. Computational fluid dynamics is based on the Navier-Stokes equations. These equations describe how the velocity, pressure, temperature, and density of a moving fluid are related. Can you explain how Axair use CFD to help their clients? ...

Medium Pressure Industrial Fans

Do you need a strong and reliable fan, for general industrial applications or where the motor needs to be out of the air stream? If the answer is yes then what you need is a medium pressure single inlet forward curved centrifugal fan or MB range for short! These fans are made of fabricated steel for a solid construction, with a squirrel cage induction traditional motor and class F motor winding. They have an overall protection of IP54 or IP55 and a maximum air temperature of 120°C as standard. The impeller diameter starts at 80mm and goe...
