Spun & Fabricated Bifurcated Fans

Bifurcated fans are direct driven units that have been constructed with the motor encased in a central pod permitting isolated gas flow and efficient motor cooling.

There are two types: spun bifurcated fans, and fabricated bifurcated fans. Both types are ideally suited to working at high (gas) temperatures, where the motor requires isolating entirely from the gas flow.

What Are Spun Bifurcated Fans?

Generally supplied in a circular configuration and capable of gas transfer rates of up to 5M^3/sec; spun bifurcated fans are ideal for circulating or removing fumes and gasses at up to 200 degrees Centigrade with higher temperature units available to special order.

Impellers can be supplied with variable or fixed pitch blades manufactured in a range of materials selected to suit the operating condition.

What Are Fabricated Bifurcated Fans?

This particular fan is a larger version of the spun units, and possesses all of their advantageous operational benefits, in addition to full flexibility in choice of materials of construction. Fabricated bifurcated fans are usually supplied in a circular configuration, but with enhanced performance, being capable of gas transfer rates of up to 40^3M/sec.

Why Choose Bifurcated Fans Over Axial Fans?

Whilst direct drive axial fans have many advantages, there are alternative benefits that bifurcated fans can provide, including:

  • Easy maintenance
  • Higher temperature ratings
  • The motor is isolated from heat or contaminants in the airstream

Bifurcated fans are essential in situations where it’s crucial that the motor is kept out of the airstream (due to the temperature or type of the gas and fumes in the atmosphere), whilst still having access to ambient air.
