- Adjustable vertical oscillation – Additional flexibility ensures fans can keep even hard-to-reach areas dust-free.
- Continuous operation – Fans never clock out at the end of a shift or take a vacation day. Ongoing dust removal keeps your facility consistently clean.
- Fire, alarm and process system interface – Integrate fans with other systems for enhanced safety and operations.
- 1 and 2 HP options – We will recommend the power that makes sense for your setting and energy efficiency needs.
- Models for standard and harsh industrial environments – Damp location? High temperatures? Class II environment? No problem. SonicAire’s latest line of fans includes the right fan for you.

Are You Ready? NFPA 652 Deadline Approaches
Your facility has until September 7, 2020 to comply with the dust hazard analysis (DHA) requirements of NFPA 652. This standard outlines the requirements for the management of fire and explosion hazards related to combustible dust. It applies to all industries that include processes that can generate combustible dust.
To comply, you must complete a DHA, demonstrate progress in completing a DHA in years leading up to the deadline and continue to review and update the DHA every five years.
A DHA is a review that examines all facility areas where combustible dust is present and identifies hazards as related to explosions and fires. If any hazard areas are identified, the facility must complete the analysis by defining safe operating ranges, listing existing hazard management methods, and identifying options for future hazard management.
NPFA 652 also includes guidelines for equipment that can provide effective dust control to help meet the standard. Included in these hazard management steps are industrial dust control fan systems such as those made by SonicAire. These effective solutions are ideal for improving housekeeping and aligning practices with NFPA standards.
