ORLANDO, Fla. — After more than 100 years in the ceiling fan industry, Hunter Fan Co. announced it is expanding into the industrial and commercial market, launching a new division of its business, Hunter Industrial. The debut product from Hunter is the TITAN Industrial Fan, a high volume low speed fan, debuting at the 2016 AHR Expo in Orlando. The TITAN fan comes in five different sizes varying from a 14 foot blade span to a 24 foot blade span. With a diameter of 288 inches, the company said the TITAN 24 is the largest operating fan ever to have been displayed at the AHR Expo.

Hunter said it created the TITAN fan with a commitment to delivering the most efficient total cost of ownership.

“Here at Hunter, we are experts at ceiling fans. We invented the first ceiling fans in the late 1800’s and are now bringing a superior product to the industrial market,” said John Alexander, CEO of Hunter. “Our strong expertise and track record for innovation should allow our brand to perform well in the industrial and commercial segments.”

The TITAN’s direct drive ECM (electronically-commuted motor) allows for an efficient, lightweight product. It can be lifted by just one installer with no additional lift equipment required. The lubricated bearings are “lubricated for life,” meaning the fan requires less maintenance and has a longer life. Its touch screen user interface allows users to integrate to their building management system (BMS) through industry-standard protocols. The TITAN’s design also features fewer fan blades, generating airflow with better aerodynamics.

First deliveries of the industrial fan are expected to occur in April 2016.
