Rite-Hite Direct Drive Fan HVLS

November 20, 2018 | By Mario Cywinski

Direct Drive high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan from Rite-Hite delivers temperature-related solutions with no noise and no oil.

“The gearless motor offers major advantages to facilities operating in various industries,” said Andy Olson, Rite-Hite marketing manager. “The lack of gears reduces noise in commercial and retail stores, while the absence of oil means the Direct Drive HVLS fan eliminates any opportunity of contamination in food and pharmaceutical facilities.”

Configured with three Propell-AirTM blades, it comes standard with 24-foot diameter blades, and is also available in 20-, 16-, 12-, and 8-foot diameter.

A single Direct Drive HVLS fan can circulate a large volume of air up to 85 feet from the fan’s center in all directions for an area encompassing up to 22,000 square feet. The design of the fan directs air outward from the center in a conical shape, eliminating dead-air holes directly beneath the fan and in building corners.


Direct Drive HVLS fan can be controlled with a digital touch screen Fan Commander, wirelessly through a smart device or incorporated into a building management system (BMS). Up to 24 HVLS fans can be coordinated with a single Fan Commander control panel.
