Why Choose VENTRY® Fans?

The whole point of ventilation, especially for firefighting and PPV, is to deliver lots of fresh air FAST! The fan you use for ventilation or attack MUST...

  • allow for rapid setup and precise aiming without extra crew or cribbing;
  • set far from the target so as not to be in the way of entering/exiting crew and victims;
  • push a LOT of air fast, directly where it’s needed!

VENTRY Fans all have three things...

These three elements and combinations of these elements result in numerous advantages which solve the problems commonly associated with PPV.

Small size and high output are the main reasons that fire fighters, hot air balloonists and others with industrial applications, choose VENTRY Fans. Well engineered for efficiency, strength, and simplicity, VENTRY Fans achieve high air volumes with much smaller engines, thus avoiding excess weight, storage size and bulk, noise, carbon monoxide, and expense.

What’s so great about the Legs on VENTRY Fans?

The Legs on VENTRY® Fans...

  • Allow airstream to be aimed high over common obstacles (porches, stairs, snow) and into elevated or awkward openings

  • Lock and adjust independently, with the turn of a knob, to allow fast, accurate aiming and infinite tilt angles without cribbing!

  • Eliminate any possibility of the fan plugging with leaves or picking up and shooting sand and rocks into the scene.

  • Retract for easy transport and small storage size

  • Extend in a few seconds

  • Lift fan controls up within easy, natural reach of the operator

  • Increases air supply and therefore air volume by raising the propeller up and away from the ground so it is not trying to pull its air supply out of the dirt

  • Allow set up off to the side, out of the way, leaving sidewalk and entry/exit path clear for firefighters and victims
  • ventry all terrain attack ppv fans adams fire
  • Stand solid on uneven terrain like landscaping, hills, snow, mud, and stairs, giving these fans unmatched versatility

  • Straddle scene debris, clutter, hose, and other obstacles

  • Prevent the suction and projectile of ground debris into the air stream

  • Are engineered for safety and strength, so are robust without being bulky

  • Asymmetrical design is engineered to balance the forces of the engine and propeller evenly, without walking or rotating

  • Make maintenance easier for the mechanic

Free-Flow Guards vs. Solid Shrouds

Why VENTRY Fans have open cages instead of solid shrouds


Greater air volume due to greater air supply.


VENTRY Fans are quiet. Click to enlarge.

VENTRY Fans, on the other hand, are known as a quiet PPV Fan. Above, firefighters discuss training while the VENTRY Fan idles right next to them.

In order to push a lot of air, a propeller has to have a lot of air reach it! Supplying more air TO the propeller simply results in more air being pushed BY the propeller.



 

When a VENTRY Fan runs, its propeller pulls air in from the back, the sides, and even the outer front edges of the guard -- then it shoots that air forward in a consistent, central stream of air. The majority of the propeller’s air supply reaches the propeller from the sides, through the open-flow guard.


It is also helpful to understand that the outer quarter of a propeller does three quarters of the work. That is, the tips of the propeller move most of the air. This makes sense if you consider the much longer distance traveled by a point on the tip in one revolution as compared to the distance traveled by a point near the center of the prop.


Solid shrouds block the air that reaches the propeller tips, and starves the prop of air, dramatically increasing noise. Fan users are surprised to find that most of the noise from conventional groundhugger fans is coming from the propeller, not the motor. VENTRY Fans, on the other hand, are known for being much quieter, as shown at left.

 

FAN OUTPUT


Air volume is measured with the legs on the fans fully extended, so that the propeller is elevated or raised up off the ground. Legs should ALWAYS be extended on VENTRY Fans when they are in use/running, at least six inches!


CFM stands for cubic feet per minute. The metric equivalent of CFM is m3/hr (cubic meters per hour) and is calculated by multiplying the CFM value by 1.69875.


Air volume of VENTRY Fans is verified by THRUST. Please see our webpage about thrust and why, because of Newton’s Third Law of Motion, thrust is an easy and accurate way to verify any fan’s performance.

Notes about this data:

OSHA standards prohibit worker exposure to more than 50 parts of carbon monoxide gas per million parts (ppm). (Source: OSHA Carbon Monoxide Fact Sheet from osha.gov, retrived July 29, 2010. CO levels on all VENTRY Fan models are well below this level.

*Efficiency. The last column titled CFM divided by HP is a simple calculation to compare efficiency. It is the CFM value divided by the horsepower of the motor, to show how efficiently the propeller is using the power. Click here for an important note about the horsepower ratings on Honda motors. For more on efficiency, see our Solved section.

 

SIZE / DIMENSIONS

Wheels may increase fan storage size! Before ordering any fan, be sure to measure, check, and then triple check your compartment to make sure it will fit! Please download the Fan Specifications sheet for all specs, including fan sizes with and without the different Wheel options. If you do not find the dimensions you need, or they are very close to your tolerances, please call or email us.
