Through decomposition, landfills produce syngas, a combination of methane carbon monoxide and other hazardous gases. To avoid dangerously high levels of these gases, forced draft fans are used to drive fresh air into the landfill mass. Induced draft fans are also used for pulling noxious gases out of the landfill for safe disposal or for collecting them as a fuel source. The fans used in these applications often require special materials or coatings along with spark resistant construction. Depending on your specific needs, Twin City Fan will work with you to select the proper air moving equipment.
