The History of Pfannenberg's Products

The first generation of Pfannenberg Filterfan came about in 1958, with the fan built within metal housing, and mounted on the top or side of relevant control cabinets, while the filter came in the form of a cloth that stopped dust particles from reaching within.

In 1982, the Filterfan was updated with the official 2nd generation product. This new fan was produced with self-extinguishing plastic, with improvements to installation and maintenance also innovated. Meanwhile, the original cloth filter was replaced with a mat, containing special air inlets to prevent excessive dust build-up.

Eight years later, and 1990 saw the launch of the 3rd generation Filterfan, this time improving performance and efficiency, while adding a patented folding mechanism. The new mechanism enabled users to replace two different sized filter mats easily and quickly.

Finally, the fourth generation fan was launched, and is still in use. The new design features a 4-corner fastening system, optimised rotor blades and fins, and an improved longer service life.
