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 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.
To help clear up that confusion, here is a breakdown of the fan types, their benefits, and their uses.
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.
As summer’s temperatures reach their peak, keeping your facilities cool is important for maintaining comfortable working conditions. Cooling commercial spaces properly means finding the right balance for employee comfort, temperature/humidity control, and energy use. In manufacturing operations where additional heat is generated by machinery, and in warehouses where goods must be stored in constant environmental conditions, cooling systems are vital mechanisms.
