ExVelTM Turbo Fans

A competitive cost with an outstanding track record of long life and reliability

ExVelTM turbo fans offer complete isolation of the process gas and a robust ability to handle corrosive gases. These factors make ExVel the first choice across the oil and petrochemical industries, chemicals manufacturing, food processing and many other activities where long-term, round-the-clock operation is essential and unscheduled stoppages have expensive consequences.

More than 3000 ExVel turbo fans are today installed around the world, performing vital roles in a wide range of applications.

Key Features

  • Choice of materials to suit even the most challenging process gases and environments.
  • Design pressure options from full vacuum to several atmospheres.
  • Wide choice of turn-down and control options.
  • Can be produced to meet various industry standards including API, PIP, ANSI, PED and ATEX.


The ExVel unit is engineered to perform at high temperatures and pressures, in either vacuum or overpressure roles, with total containment of the process gas. Casing stiffeners have been added at key structural points to bring additional robustness, and the impeller material is selected to match the process gas and the conditions within the application.
