Sheldon Engineering, Inc. Material Handling Fans
SIZES: 12¼" - 85¼" Wheel Diameter
CLASS: I, II, III, IV
PERFORMANCE: Over 90,000 CFM to 40" SP.
APPLICATION: The heavy duty, easy to maintain industrial fans are
available in four different wheel configurations, each designed for a
special material handling application from coarse, sticky materials to lab exhaust fumes.
SERIES: 9000 XB
[THE "XB" WHEEL]
APPLICATION: Has the highest efficiency of
the four types shown. It is designed to handle air only or air
containing fumes with a small quantity of fine dust. It is not
recommended for handling coarse materials when they must pass through
the fan. This wheel is utilized on applications such as hot gas,
general supply or exhaust fan in many industrial processes and may also
be used as an induced draft fan in power plants.
SERIES: 9000 XS
[THE "XS" WHEEL]
APPLICATION: Is used where the air contains
granular material which passes directly through the fan. The
radial-type blades are more wear resistant than those of the XB wheel.
It is widely used in conveying systems for sawdust, chips, grain, etc.,
with static pressures up to 16" in the standard design.
SERIES: 9000 XC
[THE "XC" WHEEL]
APPLICATION: Is a modification of the XS with
the same number of blades but with no shroud. IT is used primarily as
an exhauster handling stringy materials such as long shavings, rags,
etc., which may be fed directly into the fan inlet.
SERIES: 9000 XO
[THE "XO" WHEEL]
APPLICATION: Is another type of radial-bladed
exhauster. The spider-type construction is designed for extremely
rugged service, handling air containing knots, blocks, paper trim,
silage or other heavy and bulky materials. This wheel is sometimes used
as a "chopper" for fibrous materials such as silage and paper trim as
it is fed into the fan; in this application it is called an X0-CT wheel.
