Side opening on a shrouded industrial fan
I need to redirect exhaust flow 90 degrees. Rather than fabricating ducting offsets from a plenum box fitted to the exhaust opening, I am considering doing away with the plenum by blocking off the fans exhaust opening, and creating a side opening in line with the fan blade tips. This will allow straight line ducting. Will this reduce the fans efficiency.
