Second Layer Plastic Inflation Blower Fan
Inflation Blower Fans are designed to mount to your hoops on the interior of your High Tunnel or Hoop House. Inflation Blower Fans pull air from the interior of your structure, and push that air through the first layer of plastic, and into the space between your first layer and second layer of greenhouse plastic. This creates an inflated space (3" to 9") between your first and second layer of greenhouse plastic. This space of inflated air acts as a form of insulation between the weather on the outside of your structure and the plants on the interior of your structure. These blower fans:
There are two models of Inflation Blower Fan available. Both have similar mounting and fan technology. The main difference between the two models is the power of the fan / amount of air being pulled into the dead air space between plastic layers. See Below Table:
|VBM60PCS||Round Mounting Flange, With Damper, and Cord Provided||1/60||120||60 CFM||6 ft.|
|VBM148PCS||Square Mounting Flange, With Damper, and Cord Provided||1/30||120||148 CFM||6 ft.|
If You are Purchasing The Blower Fan You Should Also Consider a Jumper Hose:
If you are purchasing the Blower Fan and planning on operating the fan with a Gothic (peaked) profile structure, you should consider employing the use of a Jumper Hose (or two if your structure is long). A Jumper Hose will help transfer air from the side of the tunnel that your blower fan is mounted to the other side of the structure. Sometimes pressure at the peak of the structure compromises good air transfer. The Jumper Hose can prevent this from occurring.

Easy to install.
No trouble installing with 2 tek screws. I wish the casing was simpler to open to direct wire, but a little troubleshooting let me figure that out. It does cause vibration to the whole tunnel, I plan to add some vibration padding to the undermount to dampen the fan vibration.
