Types of Fans Used in the HVAC Industry | Pelonis Tech

Posted by Sam Pelonis | May 28, 2019 9:45:04 AM | 0 Comments

A fan is a key component of any HVAC system. The most common HVAC fans are axial, forward-curved centrifugal, and backward-inclined, and each is uniquely suited to certain purposes. It’s important to understand each fan’s differences in energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and noise considerations. The wrong fan for the job could lead to reduced functionality and higher costs. Here’s what you need to know about the various fans for HVAC systems.

Axial Fans

hvac axial fan

Axial Fans, which include propeller, tube axial, and vane axial styles, move an air stream along the axis of the fan. These fans work like an airplane propeller—blades generate an aerodynamic lift that then pressurizes the air. Propeller fans embody only a motor and a propeller used to drive the airflow. Similar to a propeller fan, a tube axial fan includes a venturi that surrounds the fan propeller and is designed to reduce the air leak

age or vortices created by the spinning prop. A vane axial fan features vanes trailing the rear of the propeller, which straighten out the swirling airflow that occurs when the air is accelerated by the motor. Axial fans are inexpensive, compact, and light, making them a favorite for industrial applications. They are, however, usually noisier than centrifugal fans. Noise can be abated by insulating the duct; mounting the fan on soft materials like rubber or using a spring isolator to reduce the amount of transmitted vibration; or installation of sound dampening material or baffles.

Centrifugal Fanscentrifugal fan

Centrifugal Fans, which are categorized by their radial, forward curved, or backward inclined blade shapes, increase the speed of an air stream with a rotating impeller. The speed increases as the air reaches the ends of the blades and is then converted to pressure. These fans are able to produce high pressures, which makes them suitable for harsh operating conditions, such as systems with high temperatures or moist or dirty air streams. Tip vortices or tip leakage flow produced by the pressure differential across the airfoil section can be problematic with these basic fans.

Forward-Curved Centrifugal Fans, look more like hamster wheels and can create more air pressure. Because of this, they tend to be noisier than axial fans and require more power to run. They are durable, easy to clean and maintain, and have less problems with resistance. Forward-curved centrifugal fans are also called blowers.

Backward-Curved Centrifugal Fans are uncommonly shaped blades, which can be curved or straight, make these fans excellent for high volumes of airflow and variable resistance. They are often used for industrial purposes.

Applications of Fan Types

Though axial fans are usually the least expensive, they’re not the right solution for every situation. Because of their features and capabilities, they are best for compact electronics, automotive products, medical devices, and appliances as well as large applications such as cooling towers, vending machines, outdoor air conditioner compressors, and combustion engine cooling. Axial fans are also ideal as general-purpose fans.

Centrifugal fans are better for larger systems: air-handling units, air pollution and filtration systems, and drying systems. With incredible energy efficiency and versatility, these fans come in a variety of models, so you can find one to fit into a small, hard-to-reach space. They are also great options for dust collection, glass tempering, and incineration systems.

Choosing the right fan for your HVAC system is essential for its efficiency and performance. An axial fan, for example, won’t do as good a job managing the resistance compared to centrifugal fans of the same size in an air filtration system. Using an axial fan for that purpose would make the system perform poorly and likely lead to extra maintenance and repairs. Even though it would be less expensive initially, it would cost you more in the long run and would not function the way you would expect from such a system. Likewise, using a centrifugal fan in a cooling tower where it’s not needed would lead to unnecessary noise and increased costs.

Intelligent Motion Controls HVAC | Pelonis Tech

Posted by Sam Pelonis | May 10, 2019 2:13:52 PM | 0 Comments

Brushless DC fans and blowers need optimal motion control. When complex or demanding applications need precise levels of output, intelligent motion control systems can keep parts safe while still ensuring high-quality production cycles. These intelligent motion controls (IMCs) have in-board circuits that use programmable, information-gathering features to develop air movement “intelligence” and learn how the parts need to operate in different environments.

IMCs are ideal for:

  • Green applications in which facility managers want to improve reliability, the equipment’s life expectancy, and energy efficiency.
  • Systems that need consistent monitoring and cooling—IMCs have multi-alarm connections to prevent complete system failures, reduce voltage fluctuations, and have more reliable control.

When businesses install IMCs, they will make their facilities greener and more efficient. Read on to learn about all the different benefits IMCs can bring.

Top Solutions

There are several different types of IMCs that can add control to the operation and maintenance of brushless DC fans and blowers. The top four IMC solutions are:

Rotation Detectors

A smart rotation detector can monitor fan operations in parallel circuits to detect ongoing circulation as well as potential failures or stopped fans. These systems give a “high” output signal to the monitoring interface while the fan rotates. That same signal turns to “low” or “off” based on the fan’s status. This allows operators and maintenance teams to investigate potential problem areas more quickly because the system automatically notifies them when a fan stops working rather than requiring them to monitor changes in temperature.

Rotation detectors use the same hardware as the frequency generator (tachometer), which we also describe below. Once the detector is added to an array of fans, it operates as part of the facility’s multi-alarm connection.

Rotation Detectors

Inrush Current Protection

When motors, heating elements, transformers, and power supplies turn on, the current surges. This short-lived inrush current can damage electronic parts if it isn’t properly controlled.

Facility managers use inrush current protection to slow the flood of current to the equipment. This technology allows fan blades to speed up at a more gradual rate through incremental increases of current. The process takes approximately ten seconds during startup, and it protects both the circuits and the moving parts from damage.

Inrush Current Protection

Auto Start

Sometimes, fan blades get blocked by temporary obstructions. Auto starts control the current output in these circumstances. First, the current can be reduced to zero when an obstruction is detected so the fan blades don’t damage themselves. This feature is called locked rotor protection. Then, the auto-start control uses a second feature, restart with current limit, to guarantee the restart of the rotor once it is released.

Auto Start

Frequency Generator (Tachometer)

This IMC solution is an open collective output type that produces an analog voltage based on the fan’s motor speed. These parts provide feedback and can be used to measure the speed of motors, rotors, and engines.

Frequency generators use the same hardware as rotation detectors, and they’re powered by the power supply voltage. A tachometer will send a square wave signal to the reading device if the collector connects with a pullup resistor. This part can handle a maximum collector voltage of 72 V DC and current of 10 mA.

Intelligent Motor Controls | Pelonis Technologies, Inc.

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Apr 18, 2019 3:03:38 PM | 0 Comments

Automation technology has improved by leaps and bounds recently, allowing manufacturers to more efficiently cut expenses and avoid maintenance delays. In the industrial fan and blower field, recent advances have allowed facility managers a greater degree of automation ability over their brushless DC fans and blowers.


Now, industrial fans and similar applications can use intelligent motor controls (IMCs) to better respond to environmental and electrical changes without human intervention, which helps reduce maintenance and labor costs associated with this equipment.

Today, we’re going to answer some common questions about the use and functionality of IMCs in industrial applications.

Will IMCs Increase Product Life and Productivity for Industrial Fans?

For many industrial manufacturers, implementing IMCs on their industrial fans has led to rapid profit growth. IMCs allow manufacturers to automate their fans’ control features, which helps minimize risks associated with power and heat incidents. Installing IMCs also adds a number of core features that make their product uniquely useful to industrial clients.3D-cover-intelligent-motion-control

Both design engineers and system users need cooling systems that protect them against a multitude of safety issues. IMCs can help with the following problems associated with fan equipment:

· Current surges: IMC Inrush Current Protection (IR) control features help avert critical failures caused by current surges.

· Power supply: By ensuring that the power supply voltage never increases over the 20% specified rated voltage (which also can be customized), IMCs prevent issues resulting from power supply overvoltage.

· Blade blockage: The IMC Auto Start (AS) Control with Locked Rotor Protection and Restart with Current Limit system will automatically restart your fan should the blade get blocked. Built-in rotation detectors and life detectors can indicate whether the blade is running (with both low and high signals).

· Aging or wear: Automatic Temperature Control, Manual Variable Resistor Control, Programmable Constant Speed Control, and Multi-Alarm Connections help ensure that your fans run at optimal speeds and control parameters, which increases their total life.

In addition to these features, operators can program the systems so that they can automatically shift their behavior in response to environmental factors and sudden power changes. In this way, your industrial fans can act in the same way as AC units, which automatically calibrate their outputs to a room’s conditions—but IMCs do so at a fraction of the cost.

What Do IMC Systems Protect?

While we’ve already covered the basics, let’s dive into some specifics. Here are 16 ways ICM systems help protect against multiple safety and performance issues.

1. Inrush Current Protection (IR): This causes a gradual current increase in speed until the fan has achieved its maximum speed at the rated current (within 10 seconds)

2. Auto Start (AS): The blade will automatically restart if it’s blocked, and the fan’s current is reduced to zero if the rotary is locked at any point

3. Rotation Detection (RD): This indicates whether the blade is rotating on a LOW signal

4. Frequency Generator (FG): This monitors the fan’s speed for safety issues

5. Rotation Detector Complement (RDb): This indicates whether the blade is rotating on a HIGH signal

6. Life Detection (LD): The LD helps detect whether the fan blades are turning below 70% of their rated target speed, which can indicate aging or wear

7. DC Voltage Signal (VPWM): This safely controls speed via an external DC voltage signal

8. Current Source Signal (IPWM): This controls speed via an external current source signal

9. Pulse Width Modulation Signal (PPWM): This allows you to control speed via a PWM signal (30 Hz to 30 KHz)

10. Over-Voltage Protection (OV): This feature protects the power supply from over-voltage issues

11. Automatic Temperature (TPWM): Similar to thermostats, this automatically controls speed via an NTC thermistor, which can be used to monitor and automatically control overheating issues

12. Manual Variable Resistor (RPWM): This controls speed via an external resistor

13. Current Limit (CL): This feature helps limit the current of the fan during a restart

14. Fixed Constant Speed (CSf): This ensures that your fan maintains optimal speed over a wide voltage range

15. Programmable Constant Speed (CS): This also ensures that your fan maintains speed over a wide voltage range, and it can be essential to overcoming system impedance variations

16. Multi-Alarm Function: This helps monitor the overall state of multiple fans and can alert you to issues immediately—before they become expensive problems

Several factors are likely driving this continued growth trajectory:

  • Industrial economic health has fed into a growing need for industrial fans and blowers
  • Economic growth in emerging countries has fueled the construction of new factories that need large-scale ventilation systems
  • Increasing use and adoption of power generation creates more uses for industrial fans and blowers


Drawbacks like the increasing production costs and growing concern regarding potential environmental impacts may hinder growth and adoption, but sales are nonetheless projected to increase over the coming years.

Global Growth Projections

North America currently has the largest consumer base of industrial fans and blowers, followed closely by Europe and Asia Pacific. Asia has enormous growth potential, but price sensitivity has blocked significant market growth in this industry. It’s likely that increasing fan and blower costs will need to be addressed before the Asian market reaches its full potential.

With incredibly diverse applications, industrial fans and blowers are ubiquitous across industry; as demand continues to grow, the global market for these products is expected to continue on a positive growth trend for years to come.
