Restaurant/manufacturing ventilators or something like that would be my guess, particulate filters of some kind perhaps.. As a practical matter I imagine they’re worth about as much as an old photo copier, which is to say if you put them out at the street somebody might pick them up.

There’s so much junk in this country people won’t pay for salvage items like that I reckon. I think you can sell that sort of stuff to a scrap yard by the ton but it doesn’t pay much and they may have minimums.

Find out exactly what they are, test them, and put them on ebay if you want. You might get a few bucks. Back in the day I learned to rip motors off old junk and I got a few motorless machines running with those motors. The mounts matter though, usually, assuming they run off standard household current.
