The Ventry® Electric Positive Pressure Fan, for positive pressure attack and ventilation (PPA and PPV). It runs on any 15 Amp circuit and is variable speed and GFCI-safe. Built rugged and strong but not bulky, the fan weighs less than 80 pounds, fits in a small storage space, and moves an impressive 10,500 CFM (17,837 m3/hr), verified by thrust.
Ventry Electric PPV Model 20EM3550 combines efficient three phase technology with the all-terrain three-leg design and aircraft-style Safety Propellers exclusive to Ventry Fans. These three features make it exceptional for aggressive, coordinated positive pressure attack as well as post-knock-down ventilation and non-emergency ventilation. Being very quiet, low maintenance, and having no emissions, it is also excellent for overhaul and other situations in which 100% clean air is critical. Three phase technology reduces the positive pressure fan’s size and weight and increases sophistication through additional programming options. As a result, this fan will not exceed 15 Amps, even at start-up.
With an electric motor, this fan has several benefits over those with gas engines: lower maintenance (essentially none); no emissions; quieter operation; smoother operation so less prone to vibration/walking than fans with combustion engines; and ability to be tipped/oriented in any direction. (While most gas motors will shut down if tipped more than 20 degrees, electric fans may be aimed straight down into a man hole, straight up into an attic, or set at any angle in between.)
THREE-PHASE TECHNOLOGY. Benefits of Three Phase include size, efficiency and sophistication. Size and weight are reduced 25-50% over single phase systems. The motor provides almost constant torque and delivers more power using less amperage than single phase. The technology also allows for better control of motor operations which equates to greater compatibility with standard power supplies; it allows programming of the motor to limit the power draw to 15 amps at start-up, with no initial spike, thereby avoiding the need for huge breakers and other protections.
ALL-TERRAIN VERSATILITY. Three legs and a rugged frame give this electric model the widest possible range of tilt positions and unmatched versatility. Enjoy easy aiming, three-point stability, fast deployment, rock-solid stance on steep/uneven terrain, elevated controls, and raised air stream, thanks to the fan having legs.
VENTRY SAFETY PROPELLER. Smoke-busting Safety Propellers move more air with less horsepower which is ideal with electrics where engine size is limited due to size and weight. This two-blade, quite, aircraft style, state-of-the-art propeller provides great efficiency and durability but most importantly it is fail-safe. The propeller on 20EM3550 is specifically engineered to utilize all 1.5 HP efficiently. Watch our video in which we demonstrate why you want a Ventry Fan in case anything ever goes wrong on a scene.
CLEARANCE. There are nearly 14 inches between propeller and the ground on this fan with its legs extended, so it will not intake foreign matter, plug, or shoot debris into your scene. For added safety and performance when in use, always extend the legs on your Ventry Fan , even if it’s only 6 inches!
FREE-FLOW GUARD. Our unshrouded, double reinforced wire guard allows maximum air supply to the propeller which increases air output and lessens noise. Video: noise drops and CFM increases as a solid shroud is removed from a Ventry Fan in this demonstration.
DUAL SIDE HANDLES AND TOP ARCHES. Side handles provide an easy, fast way for one or two people to lift and carry the fan. The frame also features tall arches on top which protects the controller from both sides and provides additional points for grabbing, carrying, and leveraging.
LONG DISTANCE VENTILATION. Like all Ventry Fans, forward sweeping propeller tips produce tight, consistent, narrow air stream for fan placement 8 to 15 feet back from teh target, out of the way of firefighters and hose.
WARRANTIES. Rest assured with 1.5-year warranties on the drive and controller, our overall 5-year “No BS” warranty on workmanship and materials, and Lifetime Factory Support.
