Our R&D engineers are sitting door to door with our sales engineers that are working directly with our OEM customers since the beginning. This is the only way to really learn about our customers’ requirements and develop better solutions to solve them. 

State-of-the-Art test facilities help to speed up the design process. As a result you can see that WingFan each single year introduces several new products.

The performance of your cooling package is greatly influenced by the position of the fan in the shroud, shroud geometry and upstream and downstream airflow restrictions.

Customization of the shroud and ideal fan placement according to your required working point will ensure optimum air flow profiles, efficiency, and a reduction in noise emissions.

Testing airflow performance of the entire cooling package on our inlet side chamber test rig will ensure that the cooler achieves the required performance before costly field performance tests are conducted. Use the extensive experience of our engineering team to find the smartest fan solution for your cooler.

Burst test

The test consists of accelerating the fan’s blade until it bursts open. 

The rotating fan blade is a highly stressed component. The demand of high strength to weight ratio for each component in a cooling system makes the fan a critical component from design point of view. Burst of fan blades is one of the catastrophic failure modes. A typical axial fan is modelled and an elastic-plastic analysis is carried out by linearly increasing the speed.

Finite element technique has been used for the analysis. The burst criteria is proposed based on the deformation taking place in the fan. A safe permissible speed between burst rotation speed and maximum allowable speed of the fan is also identified as per application regulations.

FEM

The finite element method (FEM) is a numerical technique used to perform finite element analysis (FEA) of any given physical phenomenon.

It is necessary to use mathematics to comprehensively understand and quantify any physical phenomena, such as structural or fluid behavior and thermal transport. Most of these processes are described using partial differential equations (PDEs). However, for a computer to solve these PDEs, numerical techniques have been developed over the last few decades and one of the most prominent today is the finite element method.

CFD

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is an application that assists the analysis and prediction of flow patterns, pressure distribution, and their interactions with counteracting flows, objects, and structures alike. This analysis, or simulation, works to evaluate digital replications of planned or existing designs, allowing for an iterative design process across virtually all industries.
