Atmosphere's new V-14XL, part of the Vortex Powerfans V-Series, is a 14-in. inline fan equipped with a mixed flow impeller, which the company says allows more air volume than any other comparable impeller design. The V-14XL delivers 2,905 CFM at 1,500 RPM. As the 12-in. and 16-in. V-Series, this new size is meant to ensure high performance and quiet operations. Furthermore, the heavy-gage steel casing with the hammertone powder coat finish makes it more sound absorbent and rustproof. As with all of the Vortex Powerfans line, the V-14XL allows easy duct hook-up with the extended collar and lip.
