Stir Fans Reduce Fuel Costs and Temperature Stratification
Stir Fans are important in your effort to reduce costs and improve the environment inside your buildings during summer and winter months. Because warm air rises and cool air falls, there is often a 5 to 8 degree Fahrenheit difference between the ceiling and floor temperatures. One way to help minimize this temperature difference is to install stir fans. The main purpose of air circulation is to cool and control the climate to reduce heat stress on your animals and keep production at the maximum level. Recirculation fans keep your building dry by reducing the collection of moisture and condensation, and also to help dispel gasses and odors. The recycling of heat will reduce fuel costs and create a healthy environment for animals and workers.

Three Reasons Why Our 18" Fan Is the Best in Industry
Excellent CCFM Per Watt (Circulating Cubic Feet Per Minute)
We know how important energy efficiency is to your operation. That's why our fans offer CCFM/Watt ratings of up to 26.41.
Extra Amps to Spare
We know that in the real world fans get dirty. Very dirty. That's why we designed our fans to have a much higher maximum amp rating than the operating amp rating. This allows the fan to continue to operate perfectly when dirty instead of burning out the motor.
Sealed Motor Life in a confinement building is harsh if you're a fan motor. That's why our fan motors are sealed to keep out environmental dust to allow our fans to keep running at their full potential.
