Developed initially for the dust collector industry,
Chicago’s new Packaged Backward Inclined (PBI)
fan is also ideal for an expanding range of applications,
such as laser cutters, air filtration, and pneumatic con-
veying, up to 150°F. Chicago’s PBI fan is also the perfect
replacement for older, less reliable fans. The rugged PBI
fan provides the performance you need and the reliability
you want, backed by
Chicago’s 3-year warranty.
Chicago’s PBI fan is the right choice for your require-
ments, designed to increase the stable operating range
by over 20%. This enables you to offer a wider perform-
ance range and thereby eliminate fan sizes. Chicago’s
Design 64 PBI fan is offered in 12 sizes from 122 to 365
and in standard widths of 100% through 40%. With the
available motor speeds, a PBI fan will meet all your
necessary performance and physical specifications.
This typical dust collector
installation for a laser cutter
recirculates the clean exhaust
within the facility. The optional
outlet damper, outlet transition
and outlet silencer complete
Since Chicago’s PBI is a direct drive fan, initial cost is
less and belt drive problems are eliminated – periodic
belt adjustments, belt squeal, horsepower guesswork.
It all adds up to a more energy efficient, more depend-
able fan. In fact, Chicago’s run tested PBI fan’s most
important benefit is the reliability we add to your product.
