AP Performer Series Fans
18" Direct Drive Fiberglass Exhaust Fan
When it comes to designing a reliable
ventilation system, performance, efficiency, and longevity all need to
be maintained. You will find the Performer Series ventilation fans have
exceeded these goals with tremendous air output, extremely low power
consumption and a heavy-duty construction.
The heart of the Performer Series is the specially engineered high
efficiency fan motor. Unlike most of our competition that uses smaller
48 frame motors, AP uses the much larger 56 frame motor. These motors
provide exceptional performance and cooler motor temperatures on
variable speed applications. Warranted for three full years, AP's
performer series motors will keep your fans running smoothly.
The removable plastic cap at the rear of the motor houses the internal
capacitor which has been placed there to provide better aerodynamics and
prevent moisture from entering through the top. The 5/8" internal shaft
offers the ability to use large bearings. These double sealed ball
bearings are of the highest quality and will give many years of trouble
By removing the plastic motor cap the whole rear of the motor is exposed
allowing very easy access to the wiring terminals as opposed to the
cramped area of most motor.
Even a double sealed bearing can have water driven into it when a fan is
running. The slinger on the motor shaft "tosses" the moisture away into
the airstream so it never gets near the bearing.
Heavy 3/16" all aluminum motor mounts provide a ridged mount to help
eliminate vibration and will never rust. These mounts tend to be much
sturdier than the commonly used thinner stainless steel mount.
AP fan props are carefully balanced to provide smooth and efficient
operation. Constructed of a strong and durable fiberglass blend, these
props will outlast most other blades of plastic, steel, or cast
AP's fan guard is made of heavy steel with a baked on powder coat finish.
Shutter retainers are standard on all 36" and 50" Performer Series fans.
These retainers prevent damage to the shutter caused by high winds.
The optional discharge cone for the Performer series fans is designed to increase airflow and efficiency by approximately 15%.
