Fan manufacturers get together
18 September 2007
Following the signing of its joint venture with ebm-papst, which brings together two of Europe’s largest fan manufacturers, Fläkt Woods is pleased to announce the launch of a complete new range of plate mounted short and cased axial fans designed to precisely match the needs of their customers. Under the exclusive agreement Fläkt Woods will be able to supply its customers with a comprehensive range of plate and cased axial fans, manufactured by ebm-papst using either ac external rotor motors or energy efficient EC motors (plate only).
The economical Compac EC axial fans have an external rotor motor which offers the advantage of matched motor and impeller in a compact space saving design. Mains input direct to fan. Impellers are either sheet steel (coated black) or fibreglass reinforced PA6 plastic.
AC fans sized between 250-450mm and are IP44 rated with class B motor insulation. The sickle-bladed impellers are constructed from pressed sheet-steel, with galvanised-steel wall plates or short cases. They are coated in corrosion-resistant black paint. These fan sizes are available in 2, 4 or 6-pole 230Vac single phase and 4 or 6 pole 400V three phase, with maximum operating temperatures of up to 70oC.
Those ac fans that are sized between 500-800mm are generally IP54 rated with class F motor insulation. Their sickle-bladed impellers are constructed from pressed sheet-aluminium.
All ac fans are pre-wired into an IP54 terminal box, they also include a capacitor (single phase only) and all have lead out thermal overload protection and are speed controllable via the range of compatible controllers. There is also a range of accessories including motor protection devices and shutters.
This new partnership with ebm-papst UK enables Flakt Woods to bring a complete new range of plate and cased axial fans to their customers, that are CE marked and RoHS compliant. They are supplied individually boxed with full installation and operating instructions.
