When it comes to keeping massive commercial buildings comfortable, your HVAC contractor relies on various fan systems. These pieces of ventilation equipment help circulate air throughout the building and keep temperatures where people expect them in the summer months. When these industrial fans break down, the repair isn’t as simple as hitting a restart button — that’s where M&M Hydraulic Co can help.

What is a Fan Shaft and How Does it Work
A fan shaft is a component of machinery used to transfer rotational power from one end to another. It consists of two parts: the drive section, which transfers power from the motor, and the driven section, which transmits it to the fan blade or other device that needs movement.
The system works by transferring energy from the motor to the driven section via a series of belts and pulleys on the shaft. This sets up a continuous cycle where one side turns while the other remains stationary. This also ensures that as long as power is available, either end can be used for motion.
Common Causes of Fan Shaft Damage
Fan shafts are a critical component of many fans. Unfortunately, they are also prone to damage for the following reasons:
- Bearing Failure occurs when the bearing locks up or slips this causes the inner race to press on to the shaft. When the inner race slips on the shaft this can cause wear and damage.
- Misalignment can occur when the fan blades or impellers aren’t properly aligned with the fan shaft causing excessive stress.
- Excessive vibration tends to be caused by an imbalance in the system components, resulting in unnecessary wear and tear on the parts.
- Improper lubrication and overloading can lead to overheating and eventual failure due to fatigue caused by too much strain on the metal components.
Fortunately, all these common causes of fan shaft damage can be avoided with proper maintenance and repair.
