Types Of Centrifugal Fans

Centrifugal Fans: The Three Main Types There are three main types of centrifugal fan, based on the design of their impeller: • Forward curved – facetiously dubbed the ‘hamster wheel’ type. These fans have the greatest specific output relative to their size, but often...

Fan Safety and compliance

Risks And Hazards Associated With Fans Fast-spinning impeller blades are the obvious risk with any fan. But there are more – including moving belts, electrical hazards, noise, manual handling, dust/debris/water ingress, and chemical attacks. Let’s examine those risks...

Which Centrifugal Fan is best for my application?

DON’T COMPROMISE ON PERFORMANCE Specifying the best centrifugal blower for your application can be challenging if fan engineering is not your specialism. Given that there are three different kinds of centrifugal fans – forward-curved, backward-curved and radial – even...
Fan Performance and Testing

Fan Performance and Testing

Airflow/Volume, Air Pressure and Fan Motor Power The performance of any fan – centrifugal or otherwise – comes down to three inter-related factors: Airflow – how much air will the fan move in a given period of time? Pressure – how much (or how little) force is needed...
Centrifugal Fan Materials And Construction

Centrifugal Fan Materials And Construction

Why Fan Materials And Construction Matter So Much The materials used in the construction of your specified centrifugal fan are of major importance. They will often be determined by the working environment – or the quality of the air passing through the fan....
