That’s a very cool link. It sounds like they were ahead of their time all the way around. It’s funny I just picked up one today.

Derek, thanks for sharing! ILGs really are amazing fans.


Also that's a nice one, Steve. I wish more of them popped up around here, but I've only seen a few that were extremely overpriced.

Thanks for the kind words. That fan took about two months to get a pickup coordinated. I took the cover off and it looks brand new inside. I guess that’s actually common with ILGs.

That's definitely an interesting article, and its interesting that the company is still around to this day, just under new management.

I have some of the cruddiest Ilg's out there, including ones used in highly acidic environments there the blades have literally eroded away but you open up the cover and the motor looks like new. It was true that when properly installed, with the vent tube open to the outside and properly piped to attract fresh air, that the design really conserved the motor.

Ilg is around today, yes and no. Yes as in name, but no as in product. The company today merely services the "McDonald's Fans," meaning an Ilg designed centrifugal fan that was designed for McDonald's restaurants in the 1960's that had the ability to "self-clean" by means of spinning off grease collected from the fryers. I believe that as the restaurants have been remodeled and these systems removed, they have almost eliminated support for any legacy Ilg products. They carry nothing in terms of propeller fans.
