Whether winter or summer, your livestock need to have maximum comfort levels to achieve optimum results. The AP line of specialty ventilation fans can aid in the bettering of otherwise marginal environments. The success of the modern facility depends on many
issues of which longevity, efficiency and performance of
the ventilation fans are a substantial part.

When the design team at AP
was given the challenge of
developing the Performer
series fan line, three points
were paramount. Performance,
efficiency, and longevity
all needed to be maintained
while keeping the price as
competitive as possible. You
will find the Performer Series
ventilation fans have not only
met, but exceeded those goals.

Performer & Competitor Fan Performance
All fan performance numbers based on 60 Hz operation.
Performer and Competitor Fans Include:
A white PVC shutter with stainless steel rod hinges is standard equipment.
(Optional aluminum shutter available for 12”-36” fans with optional motor operator where required.)
All aluminum motor mounts constructed of heavy gauge materials.
All weather fan hoods for 14” to 24” fans save on costs and improve fanefficiency particularly in windy or cold weather conditions.
Wind deflector cones can be easily adapted to new or existing fans to improve the efficiency and performance of the total ventilation system.
Transit tubs are available to fit 8” to 24” fans. Transit tubs are ideal for applications where pump outs are not required.
Designed for the coldest weather, these insulated panels seal out even the most extreme winter conditions.
For Competitor and Performer 12” - 24” fans, the Competitor series pit transition is available where pump outs are required.
Made of durable fiberglass, AP’s optional discharge cones boosts fan output by as much as 15%.
Quick-Lock kits simplify cleaning and maintenance. Stainless steel pit transitions are also available for 14” to 24” fans where pump outs are not required and sidewall curtains are necessary.
The 14”-36” fiberglass cones are provided as a one piece unit and 50” & 54” in an easy to ship and assemble 3 or 4 piece units.
Whether winter or summer, your livestock need to have maximum comfort levels to achieve optimum results. AP’s selection of specialty fans can improve upon otherwise marginal environments. Be it high powered cooling, gentle circulation, or something in between, look to AP for a cost saving solution.
Basket fans are available in 24” and 36” single speed and variable speed models. Basket fans feature heavy duty fan guards with baked on finish, high efficiency motors and propellers, and versatile mounting options that adapt to most applications.
Mini-Brute & Duct Fans
Ideal for low air requirements of small farrowing or nursery rooms, AP’s Mini-Brute and duct fans are a very cost effective solution. These fans deliver more precise amounts of air under windy conditions than larger fans. The duct will adapt to existing 10” PVC pump out ports. 10” PVC pipe extensions and elbows for duct fans are available.
Fiberglass Panel Fans
AP’s fiberglass panel fans feature durable & aerodynamic fiberglass housings with stainless steel mounting hardware that carries a limited lifetime warranty. Heavy duty fan guards with a baked on finish are available for front, rear or both sides ofthe fan. Motor mounts are constructed of all aluminum heavy gauge materials for a lighter weight unit and extended life. Carefully balanced, composite fiberglass blend propellers feature a lifetime warranty.
