Filter Fans

Filter fan units for installation in electrical cabinets and enclosures in which excessive heat develops due to the high density of equipment. Overheating threatens to cause damages to the components inside.

FIlter fan units with a separate exit filter pulls cool air from the outside into the cabinet and pushes warm air from inside of the cabinet out to reduce the temperature and protect highly sensitive electronic components from overheating. 

DBK offers filter fans in different sizes, which can be selected according to the respective cooling requirements.


Available in North America and South America
  • Five sizes available
  • All models UV resistant ABS material
  • Standard color: Light Gray (RAL 7035)
  • Wide range of voltage options
  • Output range: 21cfm to 582cfm (35m³/h to 990m³/h)
  • Operating temperature: 14°F to 140°F (-10°C to 60°C)
  • Snap in place mounting (no hardware required)
  • Hinged cover for easy filter replacement
  • MTBF of 40,000 hours
  • Protection degree: IP54 rated, IP55 capable with optional filter
