VENTRY Fan videos from us and our customers around the world. For photos, start HERE.
This video shows what our customers have been experiencing for 23 years in blow offs all over the country. It is posted with permission from the Richfield Volunteer Fire Company of Richfield, Wisconsin. They recorded their blow-off between two fans, both with 24-inch propellers. The VENTRY GX200-powered fan (rated 5.5 hp) is on the left and the competitor’s GX240-powered fan (rated 8 hp) is on the right. Watch the yellow ribbon in the middle.

Why VENTRY Fans have open-flow guards
See and hear the benefits of open-flow guards on VENTRY Fans. Joan demonstrates “propeller starvation” which occurs if insufficient air supply is allowed to reach efficient VENTRY Safety Propellers. The tips of the propeller are moving the most air, doing most of the work, because of how far they travel each revolution compared to the center of the propeller. If you prevent enough air from reaching them, there is nothing to move and the wasted energy creates noise. Solid shrouds dramatically increase noise, make the air flow erratic and inconsistent, and cut air volume by at least two thirds.

In this video, a 1.5 hp Electric PPV Fan is shown (VENTRY model 20E1.5GFCI). This video is used with permission, courtesy of Chief Atwood and the Glasgow Fire Department in Kentucky. It was taken during a demonstration by our dealer, QDCIP Fire, LLC. The palette is used to simulate uneven terrain. Unfortunately, the fire fighters were called out on a run during the test, but you can hear and see how well the fan performs.

No straining or lifting should be necessary to extend or retract the legs on a VENTRY Fan! Joan’s baby was born 4 days after doing these videos. Also, Joan is a wimp. If she can operate the fans gracefully, anyone can!

This video shows our 1.5 hp electric fan blowing drywall dust out of Joan’s house during remodeling. It shows the speed with which air and smoke and toxins exit a structure when using a VENTRY Fan for ventilation. The fan was 10 feet from the front door, as recommended. It was not at full RPM. Drywall dust was blown at least 30 feet out the back window. Click the thumbnail for an 8 meg file. Click here for a higher resolution 29 meg file.
A Florida customer has posted several YouTube videos showing their experiments using VENTRY Fan to power wind turbines. (They have measured 55 mph and higher.) Click the thumbnail at left to go directly to one of the videos. Enter "erb wind turbine" into the search on youtube to see more.
CFM on VENTRY Fans is verified through thrust. See the Fan FAQ page on Thrust for an explanation of this test and diagram of the machine. Here, the original electric VENTRY Attack Fan is measured at 9.3 pounds.
We urge all firefighters to watch this short, important video. This link opens TheSilentKiller.net in a new window. Close the window to return to this site. VENTRY Electric Fans are effective safety tools for combatting this deadly threat.
