I have an industrial size fan that my client wishes to sell but I am hitting a brick wall in finding out anything about these fans and only spotty information on the company. Also, need to determine what the value would be and can't find anything like it to compare it to. If anyone know anything or can direct me or where to look for more info I'd appreciate it.  It is 10 ft. across and says, "Typhoon Fan Co NY Patented June 15, 1909, No 10."

I've attached a picture of the fan itself. Sorry I could not get it to upload in the thread.

OK, let me just say "WOW." That fan is gorgeous.

I wish I could pinpoint a value on these fans. There are way more of them then I thought around (I know of 5-6 here) but are being lost everyday because nobody can/will remove them from buildings. They recently trashed 2 of those from the Saenger theatre here and several were not removed before a factory here was demolished last year.

Your fan DEFINITELY needs to be saved, although your prospects for a buyer are limited due to the size. If it was local and for the right price I'd find a place for it but it would really be hard!

Where is the fan located and what type of building was it used in?

It is in Preston, CT. It is currently in a building that was used a a brass making company for about 100 years. The building and its owner is still on the premises. It was originally his father's business that was then his and now he is elderly and the company has closed. He turned it on for me and it works fine. He is going to remove it himself so the potential buyer would not have to worry about that. Just the transport of it. If you hear of anyone who might be interested or could give me a ball park of the price let me know. I have more pics ...here are a few.

Why remove it?  leave it where it is.

You are not going to get enough money for it to justify removing it.

Just to dang big.

I would say its going to be less than $500 realized for the sale. Its a VERY specialty item.

I routinely find people PAYING to haul big fans away.

Interesting that it appears to be an intake fan also. Is there another for exhaust?

Yes it would be wonderful to see it put in another building that it could continue to be seen and used.

Please, I say, leave the fan there. Don't touch it. The fan is certainly an industrial masterpiece. The building is perhaps a masterpiece also. Together they are better than the sum of the parts. Conserve. Conserve. Conserve.

Well sadly that isn't my call on leaving it. I'm just trying to help find it a new home.

I'd give it a home but quite honestly it would have to be free basically. Thats a tremendous expense of moving, storing and finding a place for it.

Not sure if this is going to work. The first one is a dark as it was the interior. They are short but shows the fan works like a charm. If you click on the picture it should take you to my Photobucket to see it. If not, let me know.

He says he is going to take it apart...number the blades, etc. No idea of the weight.

I love the sound that motor produces. Sounds like something straight out of a sci-fi movie.

So glad you guys enjoyed it. I was surprised at the force of the air when I was standing inside the building.

To my knowledge it still is installed in the building. He said he was going to start to remove it in a few weeks. I haven't been by there yet to see if he started sooner than expected.

Hopefully he plans to remove it without damaging it. That may make it easier for someone here to obtain it.

I feel he'll be careful. He said he was going to number the blades so they would go back in as they came out.
