Choosing the Right Fan for the Marine Industry
For companies and organisations in the marine industry, industrial fans used are required to meet API, Lloyd Above and Below Desk, and Shell DEP standards. In order to withstand the salt environment, industrial fans must be constructed from stainless steel, finished off with specialist marine paints.
For both vessels and rigs in the petrochemical sector, ATEX safety is a must, with ExD motors recommended. Typical applications in the marine and offshore industry include HVAC fans for passenger area air conditioning and boiler ID, and vent fans to safely ventilate below deck spaces.
