#4 Q:   Using 6 to 8 duct adapters if you install a VTX 8 to a 6 duct system can it handle the flow resistance?
A:   Absolutely. Will not perform to listed specification, but will provide plenty of air. Will not harm the fan at all either.

#5 Q:   Can this be directly hard wired for one speed only?
A:   Yes, hard wire direct to a switch or thermostat for on/off, one speed operation.

#7 Q:   1. What do I need to control the speed of the fan? Is that something you can supply?2. Do I need to install a pressure switch to turn the fan off when the furnace is not running or can I just let the fan continue to run?
A:   You want to switch the fan on/off either through a relay wired to the furnace fan or a pressure switch. You can use WC 15 speed controller to control the speed: http://www.hvacquick.com/products/residential/AirFlow-Boosting/Exhaust-Fan-Controls/Fantech-Speed-and-Fan-Controls

#8 Q:   What is the decibel number for VTX600L?& how does it mount to a surface?
A:   Inline fan manufacturers do not publish noise specs because its installation dependent. It comes with mounting brackets. See the installation manual for a diagram: http://www.hvacquick.com/catalog_files/Vortex_VTX_IOM.pdf

       Asked on 2017-05-28 by Tommy
#9 Q:   What turns the fan on and off? Is there a pressure switch that will sense air flow and activate the fan?
A:   The VTX fan is just a fan. No controls. You have to switch it on and off as appropriate for your application.

#10 Q:   Are these fans a true inline (can the fan be hooked up with duct work on both sides?
A:   Yes, they are. Flanges for duct hookup on both sides.

       Asked on 2016-11-11 by Richard
#11 Q:   Would vtx1000 work with a 12 inch duct ? How many cubic ft per minute would deliver with a 12 inch duct as compared with a 10 inch duct?
A:   Yes, you can use 12 inch duct. You would get closer to the nominal (max) CFM of the fan since the 12 inch duct has less restriction than 10 inch duct.

       Asked on 2016-08-31 by Ad
#12 Q:   What is the temp rating for this? And can it handle grease and steam well?
A:   140 F is the air temp rating. That is more than sufficient for most kitchen applications since you are blending steamy and clean air.

       Asked on 2016-06-09 by rocky
#13 Q:   Could you give me a decibel rating for the 6 fan? Also, can these be controlled with a dimmer type switch for variable speed?
A:   There is no hard data on sound for inline fans as they vary greatly on how they are installed...Mid 60s in dBA would be a good guess. You may run it on a speed control which will help quiet it down as well.

       Asked on 2014-06-20 by RJF
#14 Q:   Can these fan be used for kitchen venting?
A:   Yes they can...
