Tempest Direct-Drive positive pressure ventilation fans offer the ideal
combination of value, performance and durability. All models feature an
overhead valve engine that delivers incredible reliability. The 18" and 21”
Tempest Direct-Drive Power Blowers™ are the most popular PPV units
in the world.
AIRFLEX COMPOSITION IMPELLER
Uniquely designed impellers deliver maximum air volume (CFM), velocity,
and pressure from each Tempest Power Blower™. Every size and type of fan
features a blade designed specifically for it to deliver the greatest
performance possible. Composite blades are much safer than traditional
metal blades as they are designed to disintegrate upon the impact of any
foreign objects. Metal blades may fragment when integrity is
compromised, potentially causing severe injury.
WELDED STEEL ROLL CAGE FRAME
Every bend and cross
brace weld is structurally engineered to increase the blower frame’s
strength to weight ratio by as much as 30%. Welds eliminate the need to
continuously maintain/tighten nuts and bolts. Its roll cage design gives
protection to all angles and sides of the shroud and motor.
The exclusive frame
design makes it convenient to lift, carry, and transport. Numerous
points on the frame double as lifting/carrying handles. The design
itself is the result of three decades of testing, research, and
experience to create the most ergonomic platform possible.
FOOT OPERATED TILT ADJUSTMENT
No levers to set or
knobs to tighten when setting the angle for PPV/PPA. Foot-operated
adjustment is quick, easy, and secure. Allows for up to 5 (4 on 16”
models) tilt positions: -5°, 0°, +5°, +10°, +15°.
BEST IN CLASS GASOLINE ENGINES
Our line of
Direct-Drive positive pressure ventilation fans use only the best small
engines the industry has to offer. All 16″ to 24″ PPV fans come
available with your choice of either a Honda® GX Series or Briggs and
Stratton® OHV engine. Both engines makes are known for their remarkable
performance and unchallenged reliability. There’s no wrong choice
between these two .
GASOLINE ENGINES – PPA
offer the highest CFM performance available. 5.5 HP, this positive pressure ventilation fans are recommended for
the implementation of Positive Pressure Attack (PPA) in residential
8″ NON-PNEUMATIC WHEELS
Extra-wide 8″ off-road
non-pneumatic tires are more durable and allow easy movement up and
down stairs, over curbs, and large diameter hoses, as well as through
rough or muddy terrain. No brakes to forget to lock down or unlock. The
positive pressure ventilation fan rests on firm, anti-vibration rubber
feet for stability. “Walking” or movement of blower while in operation
is eliminated. The risk of getting clothing in PPV fan blades while
kneeling to set brake levers is eliminated.
TURBO 2000 SHROUD
By redesigning the
inward curve and front of the shroud, the Turbo 2000 increases air
velocity by up to 30%. The air hitting the ventilation opening is
stronger and maintains PPV pressure farther downwind.
full-width handle design makes pushing or pulling a positive pressure
ventilation fan too and from the ventilation site quick and easy. The
handle quickly swings up to a comfortable height and automatically locks
firmly into position. Unlatch and easily fold the handle down for
storage at the PPV fan’s listed dimensions.
DUAL “WINNING STEP”
No levers to set or
knobs to tighten when setting the angle for PPV. Foot-operated
adjustment is quick, easy, and secure. The dual step allows for
adjustment with either foot. Four back and one forward tilt position.
Front and rear safety
grilles feature a continuous spun wire body with eight tie point bars
that also support the “Turbo 2000” shroud integrity. Meets strict
European CE Safety Standards.
Features a large
section of durable, reflective material to dramatically increase the
visibility of the blower from the front view and a full list of
instructions on the back to allow for safe and effective use.
