Tjernlund Products Inc.: Rooftop Draft Inducers
June 20, 2011
The ETL-listed rooftop draft inducers are available in RT and RTH versions. RT models are designed for exhausting gas or oil heating equipment, gas fireplaces, and ovens. These units include a fan-proving switch. Several optional heater interlock controls, including the UCRT combination interlock and speed control, are available. RTH models are designed for solid-fuel fireplaces, stoves, ovens, barbecues, and general-purpose exhausting. RTH models include a wall-mount speed control. The two versions can be mounted on tile-lined chimneys or metal flues and have variable-speed motors for fine-tuning each installation. Features include a patented auxiliary cooling system to protect the fan motor from excessive heat as well as backward inclined fan blades that repel soot buildup. Both versions come in two capacity ranges: 250-750 cfm and 750-1,500 cfm. The clamshell design - separate base plate and fan assembly - are hinged for easier installation. During inspection or servicing, the fan assembly can be tilted away from the base plate for maximum accessibility to the chimney or vent pipe interior.
