Industrial Centrifugal Fan

Thousands of industrial fan requirements worldwide have been resolved with Chicago's Industrial Centrifugal Fans. With the availability of two types of rugged radial wheels, the fans handle a wider spectrum of harsh airstreams and materials. The two housing designs further assure compatibilty with specific applications and installations.


Chicago's ICF fans are equipped with 6-bladed steel radial wheels designed for the toughest industrial environments. Flat blade surfaces prevent material build-up or deposits and are easy to clean. Wheels are statically and dynamically balanced for smooth long-lasting operation, keyed to the shaft and secured with multiple set screws. Most fan sizes can be ordered with either the Wool-Fiber wheel or the Long-Shavings wheel.
