Powerfoil X

April 26, 2009
X marks the spot for the most advanced, durable and adaptable industrial fan to hit the planet – Powerfoil X™.

Powerfoil X by Big Ass Fans® features the NitroSeal Drive™, an incredibly long-lasting, heavy-duty custom gearbox for increased durability and cooler operation - built specifically for the hard working environments of a Big Ass Fan. The NitroSeal Drive’s precision HeliCamber™ gearing provides extremely low friction between gear teeth for reduced heat and nearly 50 percent less backlash than a standard gearbox. Reduced friction means cooler operation and longer life. The unique NitroSeal Drive is nitrogen-filled and hermetically sealed for life to ensure zero moisture, zero contamination and zero maintenance.

Powerfoil X is available in 8- to 24-ft. diameter and utilizes the patented airfoil and winglet design that set the world standard for maximum efficient airflow in large spaces. It’s the first industrial fan designed with a C-face adapter and hub wheel assembly for easy field service.

Onboard electronic controls are pre-wired to the motor to eliminate special wiring and conduit requirements, reducing installation costs. The onboard electronic controls eliminate EMI and RFI, provide easy building automation system integration and are protected by a weather-resistant enclosure.

The wall mounted keypad can operate multiple fans from a single wall control and is powered by a Cat5 cable. The lightweight and compact design installs easily and employs an easy-to-read display.

Powerfoil X is the first and only industrial fan capable of integrating options such as VESDA® smoke detection, lights, cameras and other electronic devices.

Powerfoil X is backed by an unprecedented 10 Year Parts/1 Year Labor Warranty with factory installation*.
