CFi Centrifugal Fans

Configured centrifugal fans for the light industrial market with specially designed selection and costing tools.

The CFi range is the result of genetic developments to meet constantly changing market needs. CFi, the name of this centrifugal range, means: Centripal Fougal iso. The CFI range has evolved from the proven designs of Centripal, Mistral and Fougal ranges taking into consideration product efficiency and the latest manufacturing techniques.

With 100 years of experience, the CFi brings together proven know-how in terms of product design, reliability, efficiency and acoustics to serve your needs.

Our engineers and design resources have enabled us to develop a product suited to your requirements. We validate our developments through finite element analysis (FEA), laboratory and on-site tests conducted by our work and support teams.

The CFi is suited to your clean or dusty air ventilation needs. The standardized design of centrifugal fans reduces manufacturing and delivery times. Yet the multiple design combinations of the CFi range can be adapted to meet your specific needs.
