Sukup manufactures a full line of axial fans and heaters for aerating and drying grain. Sukup Axial Fans provide maximum airflow at lower static pressures found in aeration or in-bin drying. Sukup also offers 38” and 44” low speed axial fans for roof dryers and other shallow grain depth applications.
- Sukup Axial Fans give the highest airflow for the money!
- 3500 RPM motors used in Sukup Axial Fans have been specially-engineered for Sukup’s high-performance blades.
- Square end plates give uniform support all around the housing while eliminating legs that concentrate stress and distort the housing. Square housings also maintain the accurate roundness of the housings, allowing for close fan blade tip clearance.
- Close tip clearance increases airflow by preventing air from blowing back through the area between the blade and housing.
- Fan blades are precision-balanced for vibration–free operation
- Blades are secured to the motor shaft with Trantorque bushings to ensure the most secure attachment, as well as serviceability.
- Galvanized housings resist rust and look good for years to come.
- Two-year limited warranty
The chart below compares Sukup Axial Fans to four other brands. Not only does Sukup have more years of experience in grain drying and aeration fans, we also have more features and better fans!
Airflow – CFM (28”, 1” SP)
Inlet venturi formed into endplate
Sukup Aeration Fans - 3/4 hp - 3 hp
- Sukup 12” – 18” fans are ideal for applications where static pressure is less than 2”.
- Totally-enclosed, air-over motors on 12", 14" and 18" axial fans have been designed for years of trouble-free operation.
- Fans can be easily mounted to push or pull air.
- 12” and 14” fans come wired with a cord. 18” fans are available with or without controls.
- Change wiring easily on the dual-voltage motor, since the connection box is on the end of the motor, rather than on one side.
