Sweat Bee | Big Ass Fans

Sweat Bee®

Sweat Bee® utilizes heavy-duty industrial components and an efficient motor to eliminate uncomfortable working conditions. Mount it to a wall or column and select any position from its 360 degree swivel and 40 degree tilt to send air exactly where it’s needed – to cool employees, clear smoke and fumes or keep pesky insects away. Thoroughly tested in the world’s only fan research and development laboratory, Sweat Bee will stand up to the most rigorous of industrial environments.

Featured Case Study: Impulse Manufacturing

Sweat Bee fans allow our line to run at 100% capacity. Big Ass Fans engineers found a solution for my problem. Our entire team, from the technicians to the engineers, is thrilled with the results. Anyone that works with hot products should use a setup like this. Clay Reiser, General Manager, Dawsonville, Georgia


Working with Big Ass Fans® applications engineers, Reiser learned that increased air speed was the key to rapid cooling. Just two business days after ordering eight Sweat Bee® directional fans, Reiser installed them along the conveyor to quickly cool down parts as they emerged from the oven. The fans allow staff to use the full capacity of the conveyor, increasing productivity by 25 percent. The Sweat Bee fans also cool down metal parts before they enter the paint booth, which has led to a 50 percent decrease in excess paint buildup.
