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.


ATEX Fans for the Marine and Offshore Industry

We are specialists in manufacturing and supplying ATEX fans to companies operating in the marine industry.

It’s a legal requirement to protect employees who work in areas that are prone to an explosive atmosphere, from any risk of explosion. Given the corrosive nature of the marine environment, there are risks.

All of our ATEX fans have been constructed according to the mandatory directive of the European Parliament, meaning you can be sure that they will operate safely in both hazardous or explosive environments.
