I thought my 21"er was kinda big green and heavy lol. The 72" one is just overkill. Unless you're starting your own car company and want to put it in a wind tunnel :cool:

Holy crap from me too! That is seriously fantastic and I love the fact that it has the same  "ILG self cooled motor" stuff on the ring that the smaller ones have. There must be a great story to go along with these great pics.  Thanks for posting!

I dunno, but I'd be worried about that thing suckin' the water right out of the toilet! If you turned that on in a sealed room, you'd boil your blood from decompression! Must sound really neat when it's running...

It is rather imposing seeing it in person. It is only a few inches off the ground.

Mike, what are these fans' destiny? Would the present owners of the building consider donating the 72" to the museum? That is literally the holy grail of exhaust fans, aside from the super early stuff.. What is gonna happen to the building?

It's not going anywhere for the foreseeable future. They use it from time to time. It is on top of the Ilg building. I don't know how you would get off the roof. It clocks in at about 1500 lbs.:shock:

I would kill to have one of those fans. Mike, you found the only one in existence so far!

I'd equally like those 36" ones for my collection. Bet they are smooth quiet runners!

I don't believe they've made the 60" or the 72" with the type Q blade, only the type W. I would think it would be very difficult to balance a huge blade like that and they'd probably be 3" thick in the hub area.

Let me know when whoever gets it brings it down from the roof. I'm going to bring a lawn chair, some suds, and popcorn for the show! :clap:

The motor on this one is tremendous! You can actually see part of the rotor on the first front view where you are holding the louvers. Anybody have any idea as to the hp of the motor? How many poles? It must be low speed, with the pitch of the fan blades themselves. Squirrel cage induction, RSIR or repulsion induction?

Leaning Tower of Pizza Pie!!

Is it the camera angle or is the ILG building leaning? I figured that the building was leaning under the weight of that gigantic fan on top of it!!:shock:

I would venture to say its around a 1.5HP motor. The 42" has 7/8HP and the 48" has 1 1/8HP. Its likely a 440V motor. I'm not sure what the motor design has to do with poles, etc because by standard calculations, 315RPM would make it a 83 pole motor. ILG does not list any specific motor information.

According to the catalog, the 72" 60cycle 2 or 3 phase fans specs are:

Speed RPM: 315
CFM: 40,500
Watts Input: 2100
Shipping Weight: 1600

Interestingly, by comparison
54: RPM 425, CFM 23200. Watts Input 1950
60: RPM 380, CFM 28400, Watts Input 2000

So, for an extra 100 watts, you get almost 2x the CFM. The 72" is far more economical to operate then 2 smaller fans.
