Fiberglass Turbo Fan
Chore-Time has added a 52-in. diameter model to its line of fiberglass turbo fans. This is a fiberglass version of the company's energy-efficient Hyflo Shutter, and features a compressible, one-piece cone that allows the fans to be placed side-by-side in a fan bank, installed 60 in. on center. It also has high air-moving capacity so fewer fans are needed per barn. Consisting of only two moving parts, the Hyflo Shutter's fiberglass doors are pushed open as air is exhausted when the fan operates. The shutter's unique springs draw the doors closed when the fan is not operating. Call (574) 658-4191 or www.ctbinc.com.
