Performer Series


o be a player in today’s international marketplace the modern

pork producer needs a competitive edge. The efficiency of the modern facility depends on many issues of which the efficiency and longevity of ventilation fans are a substantial part. When the design team at AP was given the challenge of developing a new fan line, three points were paramount. Performance, effi-

ciency, and longevity all needed to be maintained while keeping the price as competitive as possible. You will find the Performer Series ventilation fans have met and exceeded the goals set forth in this challenge. The progressive pork producer is the winner, with tremendous air output, extremely low power consumption and a warranty far beyond the competition’s. This package, combined with a very competitive price and AP's reputation for service puts you in a much better position to compete in the world marketplace.

Inlets & baffles

C2000 Ceiling Air inlet This ceiling inlet made of ABS plastic can be used year round. As a result of the inlet being four sided, room temperature is more consistent and air distribution is improved. The C2000 is insulated, therefore reducing condensation. Operating automatically off of the negative pressure supplied by the exhaust fans eliminates the need for manual controls, cables or pulleys. Pressure washing is simple with the all plastic construction.

Allowing heat to be directed straight to the animals allows them to find their own comfort zone either closer to or farther away from the heater according to their preference. This obviously reduces stress and allows for better pig performance. Heating starts at the floor level reducing the ambient temperature needed to keep animals comfortable. Therefore, reducing fuel bills.

match. Plus, a stainless steel casing protects the igniter from damage and excessive heat exposure. PuraFire’s bottom-draw intake better controls the air flow into and throughout the entire unit and provides a more efficient mix of air and gas. Cool air, channeled along the inside casing, creates a buffer that keeps the outside cooler (not hot to the touch). This air pattern results in a unique bent flame design, which greatly increases the flame’s surface area and heat chamber efficiency.

The Advantage

• Outside is not hot to the touch

• Thermostat operated

• Motor assembly, blower, gas valve, control panel & other components are protected from moisture, dirt & dust

• Intelligent trouble-shooting safety features

• Swinging doors on each side allow access to all working parts

• Consistent, clean burning source of warmth with near 100% fuel efficiency

PuraFire igniters are made with stainless steel casings.

• In case of flame failure, an automatic fan shut down stops drafts & gas control lockout prevents gas from escaping • Bottom-draw intake better controls air flow. • “Bent flame” design greatly increases flame surface area & heat chamber efficiency
