Air Storm Fans
Installation
Prior to any installation, product should be inspected for any damage caused during shipping.
Any damage found should be documented and communicated to liable parties.
Operation Safety
When fan is in operation, no attempt should be made to service or interact with parts from the fan. Any attempt
to interact with fan parts while the fan is operating could result in injury. Inlet and exit guards and or shutters are
in place to help prevent foreign objects from entering inside the outer perimeter of the housing. If maintenance to
the fan is required, interrupt the source of power to the motor and allow propeller to come to a complete stop
before moving forward with any efforts to service.
Maintenance Safety
Air Storm Fans are designed and built with operator safety in mind. Some safeguards must be disassembled or
removed for the parts to be serviced or replaced. As this fan does have moving parts and is supplied with
electrical power, steps must be taken to ensure safety around these presented hazards.
READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE SERVICE OR PART REPLACEMENT
1. Read and understand the operating manual before trying to install or operate Air Storm Fans.
2. Power supply should be turned OFF and LOCKED OUT for service to motor and electrical components.
Use CAUTION in checking voltage or other procedures requiring power to be ON.
3. DO NOT attempt to bypass any safety features or devices to operate the fan.
4. Keep fan clean of all debris that may collect on the motor, prop, bearings, belts, or pulleys.
5. Use CAUTION when working around all moving parts of the fan.
Fan guards or shutters must be in place before fan can be safely started and operational.
Installation
Framing
The rough in opening for the fan is an exact measurement that accounts for the heads of fasteners and openings
for fan. Ensure there is proper clearance for installation or rough opening may require larger measurements.

Assembly
1. If a cone is required follow steps 2 through 5, if a cone is not required continue to step 6.
2. Remove grill guard from fan by removing all 4 bolts, washers, and nuts
3. Place the fan inlet side down on a level surface. Slide cone over exit orifice of the housing and align pre
drilled holes. There is no orientation for the cone. (This step can also be completed after the fan is
mounted in the wall)
4. Place the grill guard back into the cone and utilizing extended fasteners (supplied with fan), secure cone
to housing by inserting the threaded portion of the bolt through the cone, then through the housing, then
through the grill guard from the exterior of the fan.
5. Secure all 4 bolts with washers and nuts removed in step 2.

6. Insert fan shroud into rough opening from inside of house. This can be done with cone already installed
as the major diameter of the cone is smaller than the required rough opening.
7. Using supplied #14 Sheet Metal Screws (805060), secure housing to framework.
• A total of 8 fasteners are recommended to completely secure fan.
Each corner should be secured along with the midpoint between each corner.
• Ensure adequate space is allowed inside for shutter to mount flush.

8. Using a 1/2” drill bit, drill a relief hole in the housing at desired location for entry of power cord
• ! ENSURE HOLE LOCATION WILL NOT ALLOW POWER CORD TO APPROACH THE PATH OF
THE ROTATING FAN BLADE OR SHUTTER ACTION!
• Also ensure hole location will not allow excessive entry of water during adverse weather conditions
9. A second relief hole is recommended in most applications in the bottom of the housing to allow drainage
of any liquid that could accumulate in the bottom of the housing. This hole should be drilled in base of the
housing centered between the vertical support and orifice exit.
10. From the interior of the house use WS-003 Hardware package contents to secure the shutter to the fan
inlet opening. Place shutter into fan inlet opening. Ensure shutter is oriented so shutter will swing upward
when air flows from the interior of the house through the fan to the exterior of the house.
11. Attach (8) shutter retainer clips with aluminum washer and self tapping screw to fan housing. Space the
retainer clips evenly between securing screws applied in step 7.
THIS COMPLETES THE HOUSING ASSEMBLY OF THE FAN

This Power Unit is supplied prewired for 230 volt operation with the proper rotation direction for correct auger
rotation. If 115 volt operation is required please see wiring instruction on Motor Data Label for converting to 115
volt operation. Black wire should connect to L1(M1) and White wire should connect to L2(M2). Green should be
connected to Ground
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD!
•
Motor replacement and the associated wiring changes should only be made by qualified and properly
trained individuals.
•
Failure to follow the above warning can cause improper equipment function, premature failure of
equipment or electrical shock, leading to property damage or personal injury.
Pre-Operation Assessment
Before beginning fan operation, please follow the below checklist to ensure that:




Fan power cord securely connected to a good power supply.

Air Storm Fans
Operation
At all times during operation, fan orifice should be free of debris. In the event any component of the fan is
compromised, discontinue use immediately and contact your local Hog Slat representative.
Maintenance
In order to begin any maintenance or service to the fan, power must be turned OFF and all moving parts must
come to a complete STOP before accessing. All parts inside of the fan housing are accessed by removing the
exit wire guard and inlet shutter.
Once service is complete, clean excessive build-up from parts. Excessive dust and dirt on parts can cause
vibration in the propeller and overheating of the motor. Before beginning operation again, ensure that all
safeguards are back in place and all foreign objects are free from the area.
