Installing a tube fan

Installing a tube fan
Posted on 24-2-2021 by Felix Dijkmeijer

An inline tube fan is an easy-to-install, powerful extractor. It is a commonly used fan to provide good ventilation and can be used in both small and large spaces. A duct fan is a lot more powerful than a normal bathroom fan, which is why they are used more often in rooms where more air resistance needs to be bridged.

A duct fan is built in between two ventilation pipes or pushed into a pipe. The advantage of this is that the motor that drives the fan is not in the same room where the air is being ventilated. The alternative is that it is located, for example, in the attic or in an adjoining room. This causes less noise pollution and does not take up any space. They can be placed both horizontally and vertically.

Multiple extraction points

Because tube fans generally have a high capacity, it is advisable to create several extraction points. In this way the air is distributed over several grids, which means you get more capacity from the ventilator. A positive incidental circumstance is that this also reduces the noise generated by the air movement. Note: Tube fans can have a shorter lifespan if there is too much resistance.

In order to use the optimal capacity of the tube fan, it is necessary to use +/- the same size of tubes as the diameter of the tube fan. If you change from a small to a large tube, or vice versa, with the tube fan in between, there is a chance that too much pressure will be put on the fan, causing it to run slower and therefore not reach its optimum capacity.

Safe connection

Because a ventilator is often used in relatively humid areas, it is important that the electricity connection is made properly and above all safely. Also make sure when installing a ventilator that it is installed in a place that is easily accessible. This is so that it can be kept clean, but also so that it can be maintained if necessary.
