General Purpose Plastic Fan

APMG Plastic’s G-Series General Purpose fan is a popular and well-established model. This forward curved multivane centrifugal fan has dominated the fume cupboard market due to its light duty performance.


An alternative to our E-Series plastic fans, this range of fans can offer a multitude of rotational discharge angles to accommodate more intricate duct systems and allow improved system flow.

Whether you require the direct drive compact version operated using an inverter as an energy saving option or the optional vee belt drive unit, our full range of fans is manufactured in our factory in Manchester so you can be sure to expect prompt delivery and the highest quality.


The G-Series range of 5 standard sizes is ideally suited to fume cupboard extract systems.

  • Fan Casing – Fabricated from polypropylene.
  • Impeller – Forward curved multivane, polypropylene.
  • Pedestal – Standard rolled steel sections with hot dipped galvanised finish.
  • Motors – IEC standard motors to IP55 which can be upgraded to suit any specification.
  • Bearings – SKF or equal, double row, self aligning ball.
  • Drives – Fenner or equal.
  • Fixings – Stainless steel throughout.
  • Anti-vibration mountings – AVA or equal, rubber in aluminium with option of spring mounts.
  • Drive Arrangement – Standard V belt or direct driven.

The materials of construction are chosen according to their application and resistance to chemical attack. We’ll ask you to provide full details at tender stage.

Are single phase motors suitable for plastic fan operation?

We do not offer single-phase motors for our plastic fans. This is for the following reasons:

  • Single-phase motors must operate above 75% of full load current to limit the excess power dissipating as heat. This heat causes the motor to burn out.  
  • Because the design and actual duties achieved following installation are seldom the same, we use our experience in air movement to mitigate any potential problems by sizing fan motors at the top end of their capability. We base our calculations on the fan duty specified by the client.
  • Short intermittent use of a single-phase motor may be acceptable as the heat rise within the motor would be limited, and the unit would cool down between periods of use. However, we do not recommend or supply this type of motor for any fan applications.

Should a single-phase motor still be requested, we would require this to be free-issued for us to fit. We would be unable to provide a warranty on the fan unit due to the potential issues that may be experienced.

APMG will always recommend three-phase motors controlled using a single-phase input/three-phase output inverter.
