Smithco Manufacturing was founded in 1989 to supply specialized air circulation propeller fans for lumber drying kilns and drying sheds. Many features make Smithco the best choice for rugged industrial reversing applications.
Superior Quality Propellers
They are made of stress relieved, heat-treated, high grade permanent mold cast aluminum alloy for trouble free service in rugged kiln environments to 350°F (175°C). Our propellers have tested reversibility with full flow in both directions. All Smithco propellers have adjustable pitch blades, keyed taper lock bushings and stainless steel hardware. The blade pitch is easily set using the Smithco Degree Gauge.Many Models To Choose From
Smithco Degree Gauge
The unique Smithco Degree Gauge, as shown below, makes setting the blade pitch fast, easy and accurate. Select your desired blade angle on the gauge. Slide it into the special index hole in the blade and rotate the blade until it stops. That's all you do and you can be sure all the blades have the same angle setting. The hinged clamp on the SMI-DG-H model allows setting the blade pitch angle of a propeller assembled on a motor shaft.Engineering Support For Your Applications
Smithco's experienced Engineering staff provides fast and complete technical support for our customers. Smithco is dedicated to serving the wood drying industry.
