Custom engineered fans for diverse industry applications!
We can configure custom engineered fans for diverse applications such as oil coolers, evaporators, condensers, dry coolers and cooling towers. The importance of low power consumption, cost effectiveness and low-noise fans has driven the development of a number of new sickle blades profiles designed specifically for these electric motor driven applications.
Most portable compressors use a pusher fan configuration mounted directly onto the engine crankshaft to minimize the height of the engine enclosure. Great care must be taken to select a fan capable of withstanding the severe un-dampened torsional vibration from the crankshaft being transmitted directly in to fan blades. WingFan offers a number of specially reinforced low noise blade profiles specifically developed for cooling portable compressors.
Standard “off the shelf” electric fans can seldom achieve the high airflow and static pressure required by large industrial and oil-free compressors. Our sickle profile fans have proven to be the ideal low-noise ErP eco-design compliant solution in a side-by-side contra-rotating fan configuration now used by many of the world’s largest OEM industrial compressor manufacturers.
Large diameter cost effective fans for induced or forced draught cooling towers with low power consumption and noise characteristics are important selection criteria. Our BLEX blade extension technology can assist in dramatically reducing the noise emissions by reducing the tip clearance close to zero, which also results in a measureable power consumption reduction. In some cases the performance of a fan fitted BLEX blade extensions is increased to the extent that a lower motor speed can be used, further reducing the fan noise.
Containerized gen-sets pose an extra challenge for effective cooling due to the very high resistance caused by airflow direction changes, noise attenuators and louvres on the air inlets and outlets. These portable containerized generators are often deployed in urban areas for special events such as music festivals or televised sport events where gen-set noise cannot be tolerated. WingFan can provide guidance to help configure a fan to achieve the noise and cooling targets.
Our high performance fans can be found on many large 8, 12, and 18 cylinder noise optimized gen-sets powering rural towns, remote islands, or as safety critical emergency power solutions for hospitals and high rise buildings requiring 100% reliability. WingFan engineers are always available for on-site testing together with the cooling package supplier to determine the best possible fan configuration / position for a particular shroud geometry, thereby minimizing the fan power consumption and noise.
Grain dryers require efficient fans while being robust and resilient enough to withstand potentially abrasive dust. Low noise emissions are equally important when choosing fan to comply with the stringent ErP 2015 efficiency directive. Our high quality fan materials ensure the highest reliability and durability in modern batch and mixed flow dryers.
WingFan’s robust yet lightweight fans for oil coolers and dry coolers can be fitted with a wide variety of center bosses to fit any electric motor. Our weight optimized thermoplastic blade material not only increases the bearing life of the motors, but are also a cost-effective cooling solution for standardized modular heat exchangers.
Energy efficiency and low noise are important factors when selecting a fan for climate controlled livestock environments. WingFan has developed state-of-the-art fan solutions powered with highly efficient permanent magnet motors for many of the industry leaders in livestock ventilation. Climate controlled sheds and barns for poultry, dairy cows, pigs and turkeys dramatically reduce the energy bill while improving the welfare of the animals and farm workers while improving the yield.
Wood Drying Kilns
Wood drying kilns and other dryers require fans that can efficiently deliver equal airflow in both airflow directions at high temperatures and humidity in a corrosive environment. These challenging conditions are perfectly mastered with our high efficiency truly reversible R4Z aluminum blade profile covering diameters up to 1013 mm.
