Innovative Fan

Image102.jpgSpotted this ‘almost giant’ fan installed in a mosque in Defense. Two such fans have been put up to serve the open veranda of the mosque and it appears that the fan have been manufactured locally. The six wings of the giant fan are driven by a remote motor by means of a belt and the system is equipped with a magnetic switch. I could not see the fan in action from a close point but they they appear to be running without much noise from a distance of fifteen meters. Have you seen any similar big fans for any other purposes? I guess they can soon become common for ceremonies that take place in tents on the road during hot weather.

    Interesting. Wonder if this would have any cooling effect in the mosque’s hall.

    There was a huge fan placed on Rashid Minhas road near Aladin Park, although it was for advertisement purpose only, it sure turned heads for the duration it was there.

    Edit: Please don’t delete satire comments(such as mine). Blogging is about freedom of speech, and as long as I’m not mocking the poster directly, I have full the full right to post here. If you feel otherwise, you can might as well go work for Musharraf and censor all the media organizations against him.

    The KMB author’s IQ is going down by the minute. We see same intellectual decline as the societies that lack freedom…may I suggest Pakistan as an example? Pretty soon everyone here will loose respect for everyone of the authors, if they haven’t already,…and then authors will have nothing but a bunch of petty comments everyday they’ll have to run after like dogs to delete…

    Awab Alwi is just one such example…and now Mansoor has joined him…

    Mosques (and I assume Mandirs and churches too) in Pakistan rely on huge ceiling fans, which just circulate the internal air, spreading germs from one person to another and ensuring worse air quality indoors compared with outdoors. The indoor stale air contains water vapors, carbon dioxide, airborne chemicals and other pollutants.

    There is no concept of re-cycling the air using ventilation, to improve the quality of air ppl r breathing.

    Assalamoalikum,

    I have also seen such type of fans 2 years back in Lahore, in Jamia Masjid Al-Qadsi, 4 Lake Road, Choburji, Lahore. They are using in Juma Ceremonies in order to those people sitting in the courtyard of masjid.

    Why, these are fairly common industrial ventilators. Their application here, and in this sort of a rickety stand is what is innovative.
