    Default can anyone recommend a fan to move air around in a shipping container?

    i have a dehumidifier set to keep humidity around 50% in a 20ft shipping container that operates a few hours a day, i also want a small fan to move the air around in there as well 24/7, anyone recommend a continuous run small fan that is quiet and not expensive that will move some air around in there?

    So it doesn't matter if it's 50c in it?

    it does hence the roof question asked before.
    hydroponic fans, will look into that one, i looked into inline fans but not sure if there was anything better.

    Having a shaded roof, is probably going to stop it getting to 60c.

    what about an exhaust fan set high in the wall at the opposite end of the entry door> Pull air from outside through the container and out the other end.

    Sounds like a mushroom farm.
    Lots of money in mushrooms; especially the purple ones.

    i thought it was the golden tops that people prefered. I actually remember chuckling to my self one day as my uncle and aunty where down and we where all having a bit of a BBQ and the uncle was cooking. he spotted a bunch of just random flatish topped mushroom growing in our front grass and said "ohhh yeah they will be delicious on the BBQ" and picked them. I just remember thinking, you have no idea of the species of this mushroom. Anyway only my aunty and uncle ate them and then an hour or so after dinner they just looked like death sitting on the couch clearly feeling like @@@@ from eating these random muschrooms (everyone else who didn't eat the mushrooms was fine)

    but any way back to the OP

    I would just look at getting a 12v DC computer fan case fan or similar and just hook it up to car battery and every so often charge the battery. or find a cheap 12v power supply.

    or if you have 240v in your container something like

    for $18 you'll be set

    12v computer fans probably too small, looks like i will have to get one of those inline fans, but a decent one not a $10 one, i dont want it catching on fire in there.
