Learn more about axial fans and blowers and what you need to bear in mind when choosing the best solution for your specific needs.
In addition to considerations such as pricing and effectiveness there are a number of additional considerations that need to be taken into account when considering axial fans and blowers. These include service life, durability, stability and thermal function. Quality axial fan and blower manufacturers will be able to meet all of these requirements so you can be sure that you are purchasing the best product for your particular needs.
Another extremely important area to consider, increasingly so following the introduction of stringent EU legislation, is the energy efficiency of the fans and blowers themselves.
New EU legislation under the Energy-related Products Directive (ErP) comes into force in two stages – in 2013 and 2015 – with stringent requirements for fans and their efficiency in the power range of 125 watts to 500 kilowatts.
The new rules could see as many as 30 percent of all currently available fans failing to satisfy the new regulations. By 2015, when the second round of energy efficiency measures come into force, as many as 50 percent of the fans in operation today could no longer meet efficiency standards.
Ensuring that the fans and blowers that you purchase meet with these stringent energy requirements is a must for any future projects.
