Fan Selection Considerations and System Effect

This presentation is designed for the entry level and intermediate engineer or designer who wants to learn more about how to select and specify exhaust fans.

Selecting an exhaust fan may seem simple, but the reality is that there are a number of items that need to be considered when selecting a fan. We will present information on how to specify a fan and what information is critical in their selection.

Additional items covered will include moto selection, sound levels, vibration, installation and system effect conditions.

We will spend a significant amount of time discussing some “Real World” applications and situations to avoid.
