What is an axial flow fan?

Since the early 80’s, HW Ventilation has been engineering and manufacturing HasconWing® axial flow fans (also referred to as axial impellers) for industries like air compressors, radiators and heat exchangers, industrial ventilators and for many other air movement applications. Each single application has specific requirements in terms of the performance of the axial fans which have to be employed. For this reason, we have designed axial fans having  various blade shapes, sizes, type of material, hubs, etc.

Axial flow fans are characterized by blades that force air to move parallel to the shaft and move air linearly, along the axis of the fan. Depending on the type of the blade (right or left) and on the direction of the rotation (clockwise or anti-clockwise), the air flow produced by the fan can be sucking or blowing.
