Can-Fan Max Fan

Max-Fans are in-line mixed-flow fans capable of jaw-dropping performance at high static pressure through innovative design.

The Max-Fan is the first fan that has been developed with a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) program. CFDs are used for engineering aircraft propulsion engines. The perfectly designed 3D blades of the impeller and stator make this fan extremely powerful and energy efficient. Compared with other inline fans, the efficiency is 50%-100% higher. 6″-14″ comes pre-wired with an 8 ft 120 V power cord. Can-Fan® brings its innovation to market and sets a new standard for performance. The Max-Fan® is a more powerful and efficient fan that takes less energy to run.

The Can Fan Max-Fans are available in a wide range of sizes

120 Volt

  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 6″ 334 CFM
  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 8″ 667 CFM
  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 10″ 1019 CFM
  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 12″ 1708 CFM
  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 14″ 1700 CFM

240 Volt Volt

  • Can-Fan Max-Fan HO “The Beast” 14″ 240V 3343 CFM
  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 16″ 240V 2436 CFM
  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 18″ 240V 3665 CFM
  • Can-Fan Max-Fan 20″ 240V 4688 CFM

The 240 Volt Max-Fans can bring energy efficiency to larger systems. This high-powered Max-Fans™ potentially saves hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs using lightweight aluminum housing. Comes with a 6 ft power cord (240 V).

Detailed specifications & recommended Can Fan Filters for all Max Fans are near the bottom of this page.

All Can Fan Inline Fans are speed controllable. The 12" Max-Fan required the use of the variable transform controller. Only use a speed or motor control of the proper amperage to adjust the speed of the fans.

  • Lower operational cost than traditional centrifugal fans
  • Easy installation
  • 5-year warranty

Determining your requirement - Exhaust vs Recirculating (Scrubbing)

You will need to determine whether or not you are exhausting (going from a contaminated environment to a sterile environment in only a single pass through the filter) or recirculating, aka “scrubbing” (exhausting the system back into the contaminated space).


In an exhaust setting the air only passes through the filter one time so it is imperative that we remove as close to 100% of the contaminate as possible with that one chance. This requires that the contaminant have a certain time in contact with the carbon in order to be fully adsorbed. Our filters are marked with both exhaust and recirculating ratings for just this reason. If you are using this system to exhaust, DO NOT exceed the exhaust rating for the filter, the more this rating is exceeded the less contaminant will be adsorbed because the two will not have enough contact time for adsorption to fully take place.


In a recirculating system, the contact time is not such a crucial number as we are taking contaminated air, filtering it, and releasing it back into what is typically and constantly decontaminated environment. It is for this reason that it is not necessary to remove 100% of the contaminant in a single pass. Instead, we double the exhaust rating which will reduce the contact time, the goal here is to still remove a large portion of the contaminant but to get raise the cycle rate of air through the filter above the rate of emission from the source. Now, instead of removing 99.9% of the contaminant in a single pass, we are getting closer to 60% but we are getting twice as many cycles through the filter in the same amount of time and over time, reducing the overall build-up of a contaminant in the environment.

Sizing Your Space

Once you’ve determined the type of system you need, it’s time to size your space.

Typically for exhaust, we recommend a simple length x width x height /3 calculation. This will give you the amount of air (cubic feet per minute, CFM) that you will need to move to properly ventilate your space allowing for a three-minute air exchange (all the air in the space is exchanged for fresh air every three minutes). This is the number you will match your filter too.

Room size: 10’x12’x8’ (960 cubic feet)
960 cubic feet / 3 minutes = 320CFM (Minimum recommended CFM to exchange the air every 3 minutes)

For recirculating systems, you can use the same length x width x height but divide by 1.5. This will give you a high cycle rate while still ensuring the removal of a majority of contaminants with each pass through the filter.
