Fans for tempering are used in the glass and steel production process. High-temperature sheets of glass or metal are exposed to high-velocity ambient air in order to achieve a specific set of surface properties. The air is usually filtered and directed onto the hot surface as part of a continuous operation. Several stages of air jets are directed at the quenched surface until the desired surface temperature is achieved. Because air is a poor heat transfer medium, these air-quench tempering blowers can require a lot of air and horsepower. The highest efficiency NYB metal or glass tempering blowers are used for this application.
The New York Blower Company offers literally thousands of different types, models and sizes of air-movement equipment that can be customized and tailored to your specific application. See the chart below for a list of recommended fan designs, materials and features for tempering use, or contact us to request a quote.
