Centrifugal Fan Information
Often called blowers, centrifugal fans are very different from axial fans. A fan wheel, which consists of a collection of blades set on a circular hub, raises the pressure of the incoming air stream.
In general, the direction of the incoming air and the direction of the departing air differ by 90 degrees. A Centrifugal fan can provide airflow that travels through a network of ducts and pipes. This increases the airflow pressure produced by the axial fans. Despite having a lower flow rate than axial fans, radial fans produce a smoother airflow.
Due to their high pressure, centrifugal fans are perfect for applications like drying and air conditioning systems. They have particle-reduction qualities, and all moving parts are enclosed, making them ideal for use in air pollution and filtration systems. There are many benefits to using centrifugal fans, including:
First-rate energy efficiency: These fans can produce power with a static efficiency of up to 84% due to the steady airflow. This improved efficiency makes the maintenance of bigger air systems easier to manage.
Improved durability: These fans are resilient enough to perform well in even the most corrosive environments.
Simple upkeep: Lighter materials make it easy to clean fans as needed. Additionally, some fans include self-cleaning capabilities that makes routine maintenance much simpler.
Excellent versatility: These fans can operate in a wide range of airflow conditions, including clean, dry, and humid air. They are ideal for multiple airflow/pressure combinations.
These fans come in a number of sizes to accommodate a variety of applications, such as in confined spaces or difficult-to-reach places. Limiting overload is also possible with some fans thanks to their no-overload performance curves, which ensures the motor isn't overextended when its capacity is surpassed.
