Cooler Equipment with Variable Pitch Fans

Managing airborne debris in scrap yards and waste transfer stations is important in maximizing machine productivity. This is where an efficient purging system becomes invaluable. The auto reversing fan reverses airflow to ensure the machinery stays cool. Plus, vibrating cooling grates, available on select material handlers, shake smaller bits of debris off of machine parts.
