Flexible Control for Advanced Applications
After more than a quarter of a century spent designing and manufacturing fan and motor solutions for the Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) industry, Pelonis Technologies, Inc. (PTI) has developed a wealth of expertise.
Pelonis Technologies, Inc. (PTI) has been working diligently over the past 25 years to master each and every facet of the design and production of fans.
Pelonis Technologies, Inc. (PTI) is a leading global manufacturer of brushless DC fans, axial AC fans, and motors serving a wide array of industries including the aerospace, defense, medical, heating and air conditions, appliances, and automotive sectors.
As modern computer systems continue to add features and become more powerful, their electrical power requirements increase. Additional integrated circuits create heat within the processors, requiring fans to help keep them cool and functional. Managing the rotation of these fans is known as fan control.
Forced-air cooling is advantageous in a number of different scenarios. For example, forced-air cooling of electronic components in an industrial setting is significantly more efficient than convection cooling, as it reduces air temperature in the general vicinity of the components being cooled and improves the heat transfer coefficient.
While most of us understand the basics of satellite communications such as a TV signal sent from space, it can be hard to envision the satellite itself as a piece of working machinery. For one, most of the general public has never actually seen a large mobile satellite hub. Second, space can be a difficult working area to comprehend.
Satellite equipment features an intricate layout of electrical components that function just as they would in a manufacturing environment, computer server room, or similar set up. This means that satellite technologies heat up just like other equipment, and so the need for cooling measures is critical for a few reasons:
• Satellites that malfunction or shut down could cripple networks that are essential for communication and safety.
• There is little to no capabilities to send support technicians to work on inoperable satellites.
• The environment that mobile satellite communications operate in is rugged and unpredictable.
Since the reliability of these mobile satellite communications is so essential, companies that operate in this industry must use innovative and dependable ways to keep their equipment functional. Pelonis was recently faced with this issue when a customer needed a blower that could cool a number of on-board system components.
Axial vs Centrifugal Fans
There are two primary varieties of fan, axial fans and centrifugal fans. Pelonis Technologies, Inc. (PTI), a global leader in fan technology for more than 25 years, manufactures both axial and centrifugal fans.
The design and function of a centrifugal fan is very different from those of an axial fan. Their differences make them each suited for different applications and customers are sometimes unclear as to which fan type will best suit their needs.
To help clear up that confusion, here is a breakdown of the fan types, their benefits, and their uses.
The industrial heating of air and water can be expensive. But you can effectively heat both air and water for industrial applications without breaking the bank. In fact, energy experts at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) found that it is possible to save millions of dollars in industrial settings, such as energy-intensive manufacturing plants, simply by improving the energy efficiency of steam or process heating systems. To save money on the industrial heating of air and water, be sure to keep the following in mind.
Use proper furnace insulation techniques. Simply by properly insulating furnaces, a major industrial plant can potentially save 1 million MMBtu of natural gas per year, according to energy-efficiency specialists in the DOE Industrial Technologies Program (ITP). That translates into a monetary savings of close to $12 million annually, as well as annual carbon dioxide savings of 124,000 metric tons. Proper insulation of the furnace also prolongs operating life. How can you ensure that your furnace is properly insulated?
As technology improves, it gets smaller. This is especially true in electronics; phones get slimmer, TVs get flatter, laptops and tablets get thinner and lighter.
Cooling components are integral parts of all consumer electronics. As electronics shrink, so too must their cooling fans. That’s where Pelonis Technologies, Inc.’s (PTI) micro fans come in.
