Single Speed Motor

The EBS-16 comes standard with a single speed electric motor with an output of 0.3 HP. This specific motor is matched perfectly with the fan blade’s size and pitch to produce the most effective air movement possible. This 16″ smoke ejector also comes available with a 1.5 HP motor for high CFM needs.

Hang/Suspend the EBS-16

One of the key advantages to the EBS-16’s light weight and compact design is its ability to be quickly suspended in nearly any door or window way. Want to ventilate a difficult to access and crowded interior space through a window? No problem. NOTE: For safety, we encourage the use of our Door Bar Holder (300-141) and Hanging Bracket Set (300-142) to properly hang the Tempest EBS-16.

Light Weight

At 47 lbs, the Tempest EBS-16 is one of the more light weight ventilation units available. Its reduced dimensions and frame design allow users to easily carry it to and from the work site.

Formed & Welded Roll-Cage Frame

Not an ounce of Tempest’s well known reliability and durability that comes standard on every fan was sacrificed to meet this unit’s small stature and light weight. The frame is made up of entirely steel; all molded, formed and welded into a sturdy roll-cage design. Like every Tempest, it’s built to last on the job site.

AirFlex Composition Impeller

Paired specifically with its equipped 0.3 HP or 1.5 HP motor, the uniquely designed impeller “wings” deliver maximum air volume (cfm), velocity and pressure possible. The impeller blades are made from a high strength composite fiberglass reinforced polyamide. Composite blades require less torque from the engine to spin resulting in increased CFM. Composites also provide increased safety, as the blades are designed to disintegrate upon impact with any foreign object. Aluminum or other metal blades may chip or fragment when structural integrity is compromised, throwing potentially dangerous shrapnel in any direction.

Compact Size

Originally intended for confined space ventilation, the EBS-16 is small enough to hang, sit or fit in a wide array of tight spaces. Whether space is a factor for you for in storing or using ventilation, our box fan will suit you perfectly.

Safety Grille

Front and rear safety grilles feature a continuous spun wire body with four tie point bars. Meets strict European CE Safety Standards.

Negative Pressure Ventilator

Negative Pressure Ventilation (NPV), as opposed to Positive Pressure Ventilation (PPV), is the method of using a fan to suck out unwanted particulates rather than blowing them out. The Tempest EBS-16’s size and design is most effective and efficient at NPV; although, PPV may still be utilized to some degree.
