Turbine Ventilators  Turbine Ventilator

 

Turbines were never intended for chimney use... but are used as an economical draft inducer.  Life expectancy will depend on the type of burn and frequency.... but some turbines have outlasted 5-10 years.

 These turbines contain "all" metal construction. 

Most turbines are sold for attic ventilation only and contain plastic parts that would wear or melt under high heat conditions.

OUTSIDE BRACED

The Empire Turbine Ventilator is a dependable rotary that works automatically, continuously and silently without operating or maintenance costs. It is outside braced for strength, safety and perfect alignment. Ventilators up to and including 14 are aluminum braced. Larger sizes are steel braced for additional strength.

Operation is simple and sure. When the slightest breeze touches the scientific blade construction it causes the turbine to rotate. The centrifugal force caused by the revolving turbine creates a partial vacuum within the turbine. This vacuum is then replaced by a strong upward draft of air. A powerful exhaust is thus achieved.

PRECISION BUILT WITH LIFETIME BALL BEARINGS

The lower thrust bearing is a hardened steel ball riding in a hardened steel concave seat (in sizes up to 8) for extreme sensitivity and wearability. In larger sizes, thrust type ball bearings are used. Upper bearings on all ventilators are bronze oil-less.

The rigid construction of these storm-proof ventilators assures years of efficient service. No adjusting or servicing is required. Galvanized ventilators are painted inside and outside with best quality outdoor aluminum paint.

Empire Turbine Ventilators are available in galvanized steel, aluminum, copper or stainless steel.

Turbines can be used to help a poor drafting chimney.  Measure the outside of the flue for the correct adaptor plate size and turbine.
