Special Operations Power Blowers: the perfect choice to ventilate large, complex, and/or multi-story structures and stairwells.

  • LAMINAR AIRFLOW
    The Special Operations (SP) Power Blower™ uses a uniquely designed grill and shroud to produce a narrow, high-pressure air pattern called Laminar Air Flow. Fires in large, complex structures as well as multi-level structures build high back pressures inside the building. This high-pressure air pattern is capable of overcoming these back pressures resulting in uninhibited ventilation. This allows for a distanced set-back reducing fan noise heard inside the structure.
  • AIRFLEX COMPOSITION IMPELLER
    Uniquely designed impellers deliver maximum air volume (CFM), velocity, and pressure from each Tempest Power BlowerTM. Every size and type of fan features a blade designed specifically for it to deliver the greatest performance possible. Composite blades are much safer than traditional metal blades as they are designed to disintegrate upon the impact of any foreign objects. Metal blades may fragment when integrity is compromised, potentially causing severe injury.
  • WELDED STEEL ROLL CAGE FRAME
    Every bend and cross brace weld is structurally engineered to increase the blower frame’s strength to weight ratio by as much as 30%. Welds eliminate the need to continuously maintain/tighten nuts and bolts. Its roll cage design gives protection to all angles and sides of the shroud and motor.
  • FOOT OPERATED TILT ADJUSTMENT
    No levers to set or knobs to tighten when setting the angle for PPV/PPA. Foot-operated adjustment is quick, easy, and secure. Allows for up to 6 tilt positions: -10°, -5°, 0°, +5°, +10°, +15°.
  • GFCI COMPATIBLE VARIABLE-SPEED ELECTRIC
    The SPVS bears our latest variable speed drive. This GFCI compatible, NEMA 4 rated control box is durable, reliable, and easy to operate. The 0 – 100 rheostat knob and On/Off toggle is all it takes to operate the unit quickly and effectively.
  • PERFORMANCE 2.0 HP MOTOR
    Equipped with a massive 2.0 HP motor and paired with its signature blade and shroud design, the SPVS positive pressure ventilation fan delivers the absolute best in GFCI compatible performance.
  • EXTENDED SET BACK
    Cone Air Flow fan placement has always been 1.2 to 1.8 m from the doorway. The SP fan is most effective at a setback of 2.7 to 3.3 m using Laminar Air Flow, allowing improved personnel access. The new shroud and grille design allow high performance at this distance possible. SP units require at least a 7-foot set back to achieve effective positive pressure ventilation.
  • FLIP-UP/FOLD-DOWN HANDLE
    The exclusive full-width handle design makes pushing or pulling the positive pressure ventilation fan too and from the ventilation site quick and easy. The handle quickly swings up to a comfortable height and automatically locks firmly into position. Unlatch and easily fold the handle down for storage at the PPV fan’s listed dimensions.
  • SIX POSITION DUAL “WINNING STEP”
    No levers to set or knobs to tighten when setting the angle for PPV/PPA. Foot-operated adjustment is quick, easy, and secure. Allows for up to 6 tilt positions: -10°, -5°, 0°, +5°, +10°, +15°.
  • REAR WHEEL DESIGN
    The rear wheel design improves the positive pressure ventilation fan balance while it is rolling, keeping the shroud from touching the ground and making deployment easy across the snow, heavy mud, or rough, uneven terrain. This design also allows for rapid blower direction adjustment saving time and improving safety. Tempest blowers have no need for wheel brakes. This in turn removes the chance for forgetting to set/release the brakes.
  • INFORMATION/SAFETY BAR
    The Information/Safety Bar added to the folding handle features a large section of durable, reflective material to dramatically increase the visibility of the PPV fan from the front view and a full list of instructions to allow for safe and effective use.
