CAUTION: For General Ventilation Use Only. Do Not Use To Exhaust Hazardous or
Explosive Material and Vapors.
CAUTION: This unit has an unguarded impeller. Do not use in locations readily accessible to people or
animals. WEAR HAND PROTECTION AND STAY CLEAR OF SHARP EDGES! The compactness and
adaptability of the model PSD blower permits easy installation. The units are shipped fully assembled
and can be mounted at any angle. For mounting suggestions see Page 3 & 4. Because this unit has
rotating parts, safety precautions should be exercised during all phases of installation, operation and
maintenance. Remove unit from package and inspect before installation. If damaged, report damage to
carrier. DO NOT operate this unit with visible damage to the blower or impeller assembly. Screen
guards must be installed when blower will be within reach of personnel, within (7) feet of the working
area, or when advisable for safety.
WARNING! DO NOT CONNECT POWER SUPPLY until blower is completely installed.
Make sure electrical service to the blower is locked in “OFF” position.

Check voltage at blower to see if it corresponds to the motor name plate. Installation work and
electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and
standards, including fire-rated construction.
Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gasses through the flue (chimney) of
fuel burning equipment, (e.g., gas water heater, gas furnace) to prevent back drafting.
Follow the heating equipment manufacturer’s guideline and safety standards such as those published
by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the American Society for Heating,
Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the local code authorities.
When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.
Ducted blowers must always be vented to the outdoors.
If this unit is to be installed over a tub or shower, it must be marked as appropriate for the application
and be connected to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) –protected branch circuit.
NEVER place a switch where it can be reached from a tub or shower.
All units are suitable for use with solid-state speed control.

PART 1
Planning the Installation
For best and quietest performance, the In-Line Blower should be installed in the attic, near or
slightly beyond the mid-point of the duct system. In installations requiring the blower be in a chase or
wood-type hood over the range (e.g., no attic above the kitchen), the duct silencer will not be as effective
in absorbing motor noise. In addition, there will likely be motor sound transmitted through the walls of the
chase, bypassing the duct silencer. Given the high performance of Trade-Wind® In-Line Blowers, it
is highly recommended that the blower NOT be attached directly to the liner or in a chase
immediately above the liner unless a Trade-Wind® brand duct silencer is installed between the
blower and liner and neoprene lined FC Clamps* are used.
Trade-Wind® brand Professional Series ventilation systems can be installed in an infinite variety of
configurations. The In-Line Blower and Duct Silencer can be installed at any angle.
Connecting the Blower / Ventilator
After properly aligning and supporting the blower, connect it to the duct. Fasten in place by using sheet
metal screws and tape or preferably FC Clamps*. Fast Clamps (FC Clamps) are the recommended
connectors for connecting the blower to the duct system. FC Clamps are easy to connect and work
extremely well as a vibration absorber and noise suppressor. They are made of steel and are lined with
a 0.3” neoprene pad. If FC Clamps are used to connect the blower to the duct, it is not as necessary to
use them on the Duct Silencer for vibration suppression. FC Clamps are available from Trade-Wind®
(Universal Metal Industries, Inc.) through your Trade-Wind® supplier.
CAUTION: DO NOT hang PSD model blowers / ventilators from the FC Clamp’s hanging
tabs. Instead, use the integral brackets bolted to the blower housing.
Hanger-type vibration isolators and suspension hardware (e.g., threaded rod, slotted angle iron,
hurricane strap) are not supplied with blower. If the blower is suspended with these items, they will
absorb much of the motor’s minor vibration.
For more information about vibration absorbers, visit the following internet sites:
www.grainger.com (e.g., for WW Grainger Item 4C879)
www.vibration-absorbers.com
*FC Clamps are available from Trade-Wind® (Trade-Wind Manufacturing, LLC) through your Trade-Wind® supplier.
Ask for model numbers FC6 (6”), FC8 (8”) or FC10 (10”), 2 per box.

Part 2
Securing the Blower / Ventilator
Follow all applicable codes when installing this unit.
Mounting Illustration Option 1
1. Build and install wood supports to framing structure for blower
mounting.
2. Attach blower directly to wood supports.
The In-Line Blower’s mounting brackets are designed for flexible
and easy installation at any angle—horizontal, vertical or diagonal.
The brackets should be bolted directly to a 2” x 4” type wood
framing structure (e.g., an attic truss) or suspended by threaded
rod, slotted angle-iron or hurricane strap. The installation should
be sufficient to support the blower’s weight.
Follow all applicable codes when installing this unit.
Mounting Illustration Option 2
1. Equipment should be hung in position with temporary fixtures
that can be removed after vibration hangers* are installed.
2. Optional vibration hanger* may be fastened directly to the
structure or somewhere between the suspended unit. Be sure
not to over tighten the neoprene element. Install hangers.
3. If threaded rod is used, turn nuts on rod assembly clockwise
one complete turn on each hanger. Repeat this procedure
until temporary hanging fixtures are loose and blower is
suspended completely on the vibration hangers.
4.
Remove temporary fixtures and level ducting and blower by
taking additional turns on the spring / top hanger rod nut as
required.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Hanger-type vibration isolators and suspension hardware (e.g., threaded rod,
slotted angle iron, hurricane strap) are not supplied with blower. If the blower is suspended with these
items, they will absorb much of the motor’s minor vibration.
