Is the ILF250 a Division 1 fan and is it Explosion Proof rated?
I am looking for a 6" Division 1, explosion proof in-line exhaust fan,120V for a chemical lab exhaust. I was thinking these are sometimes used with radon gas exhausting so was wandering if it would work for the lab application. I am pretty sure I would need a PVC or expoxy coated fan since the ductwork is all pvc. Advise ASAP.
Thank you for your question. This exhaust fan does not have an expolsion proof rating on it. I would suggest that you contact our Techncial Support Group at 888-336-6151 and ask if our heavy duty (HD80) model can be used in this application. THanks, again.

How do I determine what size fan to use?
Thank you for your question on the model ILF250 in-line exhaust fan. To determine the size fan needed for a bathroom, you would take the square footage of the bathroom and multiply by 1.07. That would be the absolute minimum CFM needed with an eight foot ceiling. If the ceiling is ten foot, multiply the answer by 1.25, for 12 foot multiply by 1.5 and so on. The optimum CFM would be 1-1/2 to 2 times the minimum. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.
