Taymac Stainless Products

Taymac Stainless offer a well-developed range of Stainless fans for all applications. As we are a subsidiary of Taylors Manufacturing Ltd (Trading as Taymac) we have access to all the design, technical expertise and experience of over 50 years of supplying fans to the industry and a well-developed range of fans for all applications. What really makes Taymac Stainless fans stand out is the bespoke nature of each fan and its inherent durability which results from robust construction and top quality materials.

High profile installations include fans for many of Fonterra’s’ milk powder dryers throughout the country and the Lyttelton Road tunnel ventilation fans (still running well, after 47 years and 3 major earthquakes).

Taymac Stainless has the capability of producing fans anywhere within the range of 5 to 600 Kilowatts. In addition, Taymac Stainless is specialists in a variety fans with special requirements – high temperature, special materials, coatings, construction and low leakage.

Fan Types

PW Series Medium Duty Materials Handling Fans:
Paddle wheel fans have radial blades and are suitable for extremely heavy dust loads and materials handling. Where fiborous or difficult materials are to be conveyed such as hogged, chipped or shaved wood, wool glass fibre or paper, paddle wheel fan runners are supplied with a back plate to reduce clogging and material wrapping around the shaft. PW fans are available in capacities up to 16m3/s and 2500 Pa.

EP Series Heavy Duty Materials Handling Fans:
Enclosed paddle wheel fans are radial bladed suitable for high dust loads and some materials handling applications. The EP fans have improved efficiency compared to the paddle wheel type.

TR Series Radial Tipped Fans:
Radial bladed curved heel TR fan – 12 sizes. Heavy fabricated steel construction for large volumes of gas containing dust and capable of high pressures. Due to the curvature of the blades, efficiencies and flow rates are generally greater than the equivalent enclosed paddle wheel fan. A typical application is Boiler ID fan up to 400°C.

TA Series Aerofoil Section Fans:
Aerofoil backward curved clean air fan – 18 sizes. Fabricated steel with high efficiency aerofoil type runner, clean air streams only. Temperatures up to 400°C. These fans particularly suited to high volume airflows, as their efficiency can have significant benefits’ in reduced power consumption.

TL Series Backward Inclined or Backward Curved Laminar Bladed Fans
Are suitable for many type of applications, including moderate dust loads and or high temperature. Generally TL fans offer efficiencies between TR and TA fans, but with a wider operating range than TA fans.


ER Series High Pressure Blowers

Standard Features

All Taymac Stainless fans are manufactured grades T304, T316, 2205 or 3CR12. For shaft mounted runners, all exposed shafts, couplings and belt drives are provided with protective covers.

All fans are supplied fitted with only top quality bearings, either FAG or SKF. Bearings are mounted with tapered adaptor sleeves to permit easy bearing replacement. Likewise all bearings are mounted in split housings, fitted grease nipples for ease of maintenance.

Key to the quality and reputation of Taymac Stainless fans is the exclusive use of the highest quality electric motors, supplied by either WEG or Teco.

With this policy of using only the highest quality components which are well supported throughout New Zealand, the end user is assured of reliable performance and ease on maintenance.

On all fans except belt driven types, motor jacking bolts are fitted to speed motor & shaft alignment. In addition, on all shaft driven fans, the motor & bearing pads are machined after fabrication to provide flat & level mountings for the motor and bearings.

As standard, shaft couplings and belt pulleys are fitted with taper lock bushes to speed alignment & periodic replacement of coupling elements. The couplings fitted as standard are the HRC type, which enable replacement of the coupling element without disturbing motor alignment.

Belt drive fans are provided with motor rails to facilitate correct tensioning of the drive belt(s).
Inlets and outlets are generally flanged and drilled to suit matching ductwork.


Fan Options

Inlet & outlet connections:
A wide variety of arrangements are possible to suit individual end users. Inlets can be supplied with open bell mouths, flanged or spigot connections as well as transitions. In some applications the provision of clamp type connectors is specified where frequent cleaning or blockages is expected. Likewise outlets can also be supplied flanged, spigot, with transition or clamp connected.

Split housings:
Are a consideration on our larger fans, as this provides for simple overhead removal and replacement of fan runners & shafts. Additional housing options include inspection hatches, which facilitate inspection & maintenance as well as in service balancing.

Housing drains:
Can be supplied where there is expected to be an accumulation of moisture.

Inlet guards:
Are for safety & to prevent ingestion of foreign objects.

Shaft seals:
Typically fitted on high pressure fans and those conveying noxious, hazardous or corrosive substances. Options include high temperature seals and leak free seals.

Shaft couplings:
A variety of shaft couplings are available for the most demanding and critical applications. Options include gear type couplings with spacers to enable replacement of couplings without disturbing motor alignment.

High temperature:
Special design to accommodate thermal expansion, special provisions to prevent heat sink to shaft bearings.
Insulation and cladding:
For high temperature applications

Corrosion resistant materials:
Used in applications where either the operating environment or the substances being conveyed are corrosive. Options include corrosion resistant runners, runners & housings or runners, housings & pedestals. Materials available include 3CR12, T304 SS, T316 SS, 2205.

Hygienic conditions:
Special provisions for hygienic conditions include stainless steel construction, polished finishes for housings and impellors, fully internally welded housings, enclosed & sealed belt drives.

Explosive environments:
For operation in explosive environments, special motors and fan construction are used to avoid potential ignition sources, EXD rated motors, non-sparking material combinations for runners & housings, non-sparking shaft seals.

Supplied in almost any configuration and any material, matched to provide a fuss free connection between the fan and ductwork Flexible Connectors are available in variety of styles & materials to suit all applications ranging from hygienic to high temperature applications. Special designs are also available to suit high wear applications.


Duct Silencers:
Designed for individual applications where noise may be an issue. Examples are boiler ID fans exhausting to atmosphere though stacks.



Single & Multi Blade Dampers:
Supplied to regulate and isolate parts of a process. Multiblade dampers have the benefit of very compact axial dimensions. A variety of actuators and position monitoring is possible, including manual, electric, pneumatic and hydraulic.



Slide Gates:
Economic and compact way of isolating parts of a process. These can be actuated manually, electrically, pneumatically & hydraulically.
