The fan motor does not have any oil or grease maintenance spots. The shutters are can be cleaned by blowing them out with a air compressor. The shutters can be oiled by simply spraying WD-40 on the hinges.

Question

Can it be used in a wall with studs at 16inch center

Does this fan seperate like the 12inch and if so any problem with using it in a wall with studs at 16inch center. I realize there will be a small amount of blinding on either side of the fan but i can live with this for the extra cfm over a 12inch.

Question

Is this unit designed to exhaust HEAT/SMOKE

Im planning on using this for my restaurant kitchen. Its about a 10x16 space. Sometimes the exhaust hood doesnt pull up all the smoke fast enough, and some smoke leaks out from under the hood and into the kitchen...will this fan placed on the wall blowing outside, will it be able to exhaust the excess smoke? Heat, it gets really hot in that kitchen. Is this fan designed to suck out the excess heat in the kitchen? Thank you

I don't see any reason why it could not be used for that purpose. I used to work restaurants, so I know what you mean. There is no guard on this fan.

No, the TPI Shutter-Mounted Direct Drive Exhaust Fan would not be explosion-proof. Northern Tool does sell some explosion-proof exhaust fans from Canarm LTD. See Northern Tool item # 14771 or # 13767 for more information.
