FAN.

Case should be strong and heavy. Bearings long. Blades and arms as light and well balanced as possible. Good proportions -

Inlet = diameter of fan,

Blades = diameter of fan each way,

Outlet = area of blades.

The area of tuyeres is most advantageous when made area of blades density of blast, oz. per sq. inch, and it should not exceed double this size.
