Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the industrial air handling equipment that SES has to offer!


Before we go any further, let’s take a few minutes to understand what type of equipment we are talking about here. Industrial air handling fans may also be referred to as blowers. Simply put, these machines are designed to move air or gas from one location to another. This may be inside of a warehouse or manufacturing facility for example.

Air handling fans are useful for a wide variety of operations such as ventilation, aeration, particulate transport, cooling, drying, and more. Some of the industries that take advantage of these blowers are petrochemical, food processing, metal processing, mining, HVAC, and pollution control just to name a few.

As you may have guessed, these machines come in different styles to accommodate the need of the customer. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the popular styles of industrial air handling fans so we can help you decide which design works best for you.


The first type is the clean air centrifugal fan. The centrifugal fan design is one of the most popular because of its cost effectiveness, simple construction, and reliability. These machines have the ability to handle a wide variety of air flows relative to static pressure and they also have some tolerance for dust and moisture.

A disadvantage to this style is the larger size of the units. If you are tight on space, this option may not be the best or even possible.

Clean air models are commonly found in industries like HVAC and air pollution control. Something to remember is that these are called “clear air” centrifugal fans for a reason. Although they can handle some dust and moisture, they are not designed to function in material handling applications. Needless to say, this is very important when deciding whether or not a clean air centrifugal fan is a good idea. The SES team will be able to answer any questions that you have and get you set up with the correct solution.


This is another type of centrifugal fan design that SES has to offer. New York Blower material handling fans are built to handle a broad range of performance and application requirements. The basic objective is to generate enough air velocity to pick up the material at its point of orgin and transport it to the new desired location. Transporting this material is a very common problem for many industries today.

These systems are largely based on the type of material that is being handled so it is important to choose the most effective fan setup. With our many years of experience, SES will be able to choose the correct material handling fan and design a top notch installation plan for your operation.


Axial air handling fan designs increase the pressure of the air flowing through them. The air flows parallel to the fan shaft in a straight through design. The fan blades rotate around the shaft which are responsible for physically moving the air.

One advantage of an axial fan is its compact size. The smaller size will allow it to be mounted in almost any configuration. Although they produce high volume, the air flow is at a lower pressure coming out of an axial design. That being said, these machines are usually reserved for more general purpose scenarios. They are commonly used for applications such as heating, smoke and fume removal, process drying, process cooling, and general ventilation.


NYB also offers fiberglass reinforced plastic fan designs. This type of air handling fan is great for ventilation and industrial process applications where corrosive fumes are in the airstream or surrounding environment. All of the parts in this fan are manufactured with high quality fiberglass reinforced plastic. The reason for this is so the machine can stand up against the corrosive atmosphere in which it will be operating.

An advantage of this design is that it is able to handle a variety of volumes and pressures. Another is the face that fiberglass reinforced plastic is cost effective compared to other materials that can stand up to corrosive gases. Depending on your specific requirements, SES will find the right product and service plan for you.


As you can see, SES has plenty of options in all different air handling fan categories. Many times one of these fans, or blowers, will be the perfect fit for your operations. However, if you are in the market for specific original equipment manufacturer parts then you are in good hands.

These top of the line OEM parts are designed to meet many different airflow and pressure requirements. Along with these high quality parts, you will also have top tier service when you work with SES.
