Barber-Nichols Inc. (BNI) has been designing and producing specialty compressors and fans since 1966. Barber-Nichols uses Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Analysis when necessary to calculate blade geometry and operating speed to maximize efficiency. Many compressors and fans developed at BNI are used in extreme environments. Machines have been used for operation at temperatures from 175 ºC (350 ºF) to -270 ºC (-455 ºF) as well as for harsh shock, vibration, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), salt spray and more. Barber-Nichols also regularly produces machinery for high purity applications where hermetic sealing is highly beneficial.
