Feature Product:

VQBL - High Temperature Smoke Exhaust

   The Carnes Company VQ series centrifugal upblast fan is designed and built to handle the exhaust of extremely hot, smoke laden air during emergency fire situations. The fan discharges unbreathable air to provide vital minutes for emergency evacuations. These fans are to be roof mounted only.

Model VQBL sizes 06-18 incorporate a new support structure. This improved design provides superior structural integrity and decreases exhaust air obstruction. The new one piece aluminum shroud construction provides a seamless transition from outer shroud to Venturi inlet and incorporates a smaller neck diameter which increases fan efficiency, performance and reduces overall size.


Standard Features:

  • UL Listed for smoke control systems.
  • Tested at the industry standard 500° F for 4 hours.
  • Tested at 1000° F for 25 minutes.
  • Disconnect is external to the fan and mounted in a weather tight enclosure (NEMA 3R Optional).
  • Dual belt drives come standard.
  • Adjustable drive sheave comes preset to the requested RPM.
  • Motor and drive assembly mounted on vibration isolators.
  • Wheel is non-overloading, backwardly inclined.
  • Motor compartment is insulated from the exhaust air stream.
  • Housing is spun and shaped of aluminum - mill finish is standard.
  • Drain opening is integral to the spun shroud.
  • Polished CRS shaft with rust inhibitive coating applied.
