Powerfoil X Breaks the Mold for Industrial Fans

X marks the spot for the most advanced, durable and adaptable industrial fan to hit the planet – the Powerfoil X. Its materials, precision machining and functionality are based on unparalleled research and development, while employing innovative concepts never before seen in industrial fans.

The Powerfoil X features the NitroSeal Drive™, an incredibly long-lasting, heavy-duty gearbox developed specifically for the load requirements of a Big Ass Fan. Precision HeliCamber™ gearing provides extremely low friction between gear teeth for reduced heat and nearly 50 percent less backlash than a standard gearbox. The unique NitroSeal Drive is filled with nitrogen and hermetically sealed for life to ensure zero moisture, zero contamination and zero maintenance.

The onboard fan controls reside in a weather-resistant enclosure and provide an innovative benefit over standard fan controls. The controls are pre-wired to the motor, eliminating special wiring and conduit requirements and significantly reducing installation costs. The lightweight, wall-mounted keypad connects to a standard junction box and allows floor-level control of multiple fans.

The Powerfoil X also features the first-ever platform that allows integration of electronic devices such as VESDA® smoke detection, lights, cameras and motion sensor systems. All Powerfoil X fans are backed by an unprecedented 10 Year Warranty with factory installation.

The Powerfoil X utilizes the patented airfoil and winglet combination that set the world standard for maximum efficient airflow in large spaces and is available in 8 to 24 ft. diameters. If you think all industrial fans are created equal, prepare to be amazed by Powerfoil X.
