Downdraft fan size question

Post by IUCTX » Mon Nov 02, 2020 8:39 pm

I am trying to find the best type and size fan to exhaust the smoke/fumes/dust from my table. The table is 6x12 and has a v-shaped basin. Suspended halfway between the basin bottom and the cutting surface is a 7" ID steel pipe with 8ea 4" square 'ports'. There is only one outlet on the table located on one end. The table will be situated in my shop in such a way that the outlet of this pipe is 8' from the exterior wall, at 90 degrees from where I need to vent.

I have read good things about backward incline blowers. Any input on what size and type fan as well as connection methods will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Just curious IUCTX, were you able to find a fan that worked for your downdraft setup?

Yes, I ended up going with this high pressure blower with a 5HP motor.
