Industrial Radial Tip Fan

Chicago's Industrial Radial Tip (IRT) fan offers exceptional efficiency, performance, reliability and versatility with a choice of belt drive or direct drive arrangements. Nine standard models from size 3000 to 6000 provide pressures to 30" WG, and capacities to 116,000 CFM at temperatures up to 800 degree F. Performance ratings are based on tests made in accordance with AMCA standard 210 and AMCA standard 300.


Chicago's IRT fan was designed specifically for demanding heavy-duty applications, including hot gasses and fumes, induced draft, process exhaust and light concentrations of solids in a variety of industries. The IRT combines the advantages of the radial and backward inclined blades and replaces the traditional light-duty exhauster with a more rugged, longer life span. It will handle moderate to high pressures and temperatures and has a static efficiency capability of 76%.
