GFS Airfoil

This high-efficiency fan maintains consistent airflow, even when filters load up and cause increased resistance. Inferior fans cannot withstand the pressure.

The aluminum, non-sparking airfoil design delivers higher performance while consuming far less energy. The fan requires much less maintenance because there are no belts, pulleys and bearings to replace.


GFS Burner

With a high turndown ratio and faster cabin temperature rise, direct fire burners are more efficient than indirect heat exchangers. The direct fire burner is made of corrosion-resistant aluminum for reduced maintenance and longer life.


GFS BT Heater drawing

By using variable frequency drives (VFDs) and an innovative pressure transducer, GFS has eliminated the need for dampers to balance the booth. This allows for better performance and less maintenance.
