Centrifugal fans are the most commonly used fans for fume extraction system, generating large differences in pressure and can produce air flows against considerable resistance.
Many factors need consideration for fan selection including:
• the type of substance in the contaminated area
• the flammability or combustibility
• the airflow required
• the system resistance characteristics
• the fan pressure characteristics
• the space limitations
• the method of mounting the fan
• the operating temperature
