The Top Six Benefits of Working With High-Performance Blowers

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Feb 25, 2019 10:10:46 AM | 0 Comments

High-performance blowers are a critical aspect of keeping a plant or factory running; smaller and more compact options are also useful in the average family home. These types of blowers ensure that air can move continuously while maintaining an energy-efficient level of operation.

High-performance blowers provide increased airflow, which reduces the amount of cold spots in the home and improves the performance of humidifiers and air purifiers. They also feature nearly silent motors, so you may not even hear the system running.

Applications and Uses of High-Performance Blowers

Blowers are common in plants and factories because they help combat pressure rising in pipes that feature components such as filters, grates, valves, heaters, and condensers. They are often deployed with fairly narrow pipes to promote a higher and stronger flow; this can be especially beneficial in scenarios where fumes need to be removed from an area.

Air velocity is also an asset in:R1232-28_Titan_Series_DC_Blower.jpg

Most Common Questions About Fan Selection

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Apr 1, 2014 9:00:00 AM | 1 Comment

Are you looking for a cooling fan for your industrial operation?  We’re in the business of helping to answer the numerous questions that develop when it comes time to choose a new fan or blower. Here are a few of the most common questions we get from people at this point in the decision making process.
 
How much heat am I generating?

In order to determine the airflow that is needed to cool the system you must conduct a thermal analysis.  The origin and amount of heat generated inside a piece of equipment or during a process is measured by using one or a combination of six different types of sensors and other devices. 
Fotosearch_k11412998

Data delivered from these sensors can indicate where heat problems exist while helping to map the necessary airflow to provide cooling.  Once the amount of airflow is determined, the cooling air path is mapped using sensors and software to ensure that all major sources of heat receive the air required to adequately cool them.
 

How can I avoid static pressure?

Obstructions in the airflow path cause static pressure within the enclosure, referred to as system impedance.  To maximize airflow, resistance should be minimized.  Once required airflow and system impedance are determined you may start to narrow in on the type of device you need.

Should I install a fan or a blower?
Once you have determined your airflow needs and calculated system impedance you are ready to determine whether you should purchase a fan or a blower.   Fans, specifically
different kinds of dc fans, and blowers differ in their flow and pressure characteristics.  Fans typically work best in low-pressure situations.  When high pressure is required, blowers are used instead of fans.  Blowers can generate much higher pressures than fans, but are typically noisier.
 
The types of fans and blowers, and when to use each, are detailed in the Pelonis guide.
 
How are performance curves used?
The characteristics of each fan are represented graphically as performance curves.  Curves can be developed for a number of conditions, including
fan volume, system static pressure, fan speed, and brake horsepower. 

The intersection of the system curve with the static pressure curve is called the operating point.  Power requirements are determined by plotting the operating point to the power curve. 
 
You should select a fan whose performance curve matches the proposed operating point, so that the fan will sufficiently cool the system in question.
 
Why are failure monitors and speed control important?
Bearing assemblies in fans and blowers are a major point of failure, so fan operation should be carefully monitored.  Failure monitoring circuits can be used to track performance and to detect potential malfunctions in advance.  Some of these fan performance monitoring circuits even include thermal shut downs that will cut the power if overheating is detected.
 
The speed control circuit can also be used to increase the lifespan of a fan or blower.  A fan or blower that runs continuously at high speeds wears out faster.  In addition to handling changes in airflow requirements, changing a unit's speed, when appropriate, can also increase its life span.

Ball Bearing and Sleeve Bearing Fans

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Mar 18, 2014 4:34:18 PM | 2 Comments

What are Ball Bearing and Sleeve Bearing Fans?

Ball Bearing FanBall bearing and sleeve bearing fans are particularly useful for cooling and industrial applications as they exhibit a lower level of friction and are able to operate faster and with greater efficiency.

Ball bearings incorporate rolling metal balls within parallel grooved rings, or races, that facilitate fan motion with minimal friction. The free movement of the balls within the bearing allows it to move smoothly in any direction, which makes ball bearings popular for applications that require multi-axis movement. In fans, they offer the benefit of variable speed, extended fan service life, and enhanced energy efficiency.

Sleeve bearings, also known as slide bearings or bushings, are cylinders placed within a housing that enhance linear motion by absorbing friction, thereby improving efficiency and reducing vibrations and noise. They can be composed of a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and fiber composites, and they are often used in fans to facilitate smooth, reliable motion. Due to their longevity and efficiency, both sleeve and ball bearings are extremely popular in DC fan manufacturing for a variety of cooling and ventilation applications.

Ball Bearing and Sleeve Bearing Fan Characteristics

Lifespan

Most ball bearing fans operate for approximately 50,000 hours or more. A conventional sleeve fan will operate for more than 30,000 hours. There are a variety of factors that determine the overall life of a fan such as ambient temperature, fan mounting position, amount of friction, and bearing lubrication used.

Under some conditions ball bearing fans and sleeve bearing fans have comparable life spans. However, when ambient temperatures or friction increase, or when mounted in a non-vertical position, the life of sleeve bearing fans decreases significantly. Sleeve bearings have broad line-contact between the shaft and bearing during the back-and-forth sliding motion which generates more friction than the point contact of ball bearings.
To reduce friction and minimize overheating, fans need lubrication. For ball bearing fan systems thicker lubricants are needed. These include lubricants with more additives that are subject to less evaporation. The lubricants within sleeve bearing fans have a greater concentration of oil, and the sleeve bearings' bushings can only hold a fixed amount of lubricant. Since there is no periodic recharging of the oil, the lubrication within a sleeve bearing system is more likely to evaporate.

Noise

Sleeve bearing fans generally run quieter than ball bearing fans at low fan speeds. Their noise level depends on the clearance of the fan's bushing and variances in component parts.

Cost

Sleeve bearings are not precision made, and are therefore less costly. Conversely, ball bearing manufacturing is a more extensive process which results in a higher cost.

Friction

Bearings are particularly valuable for use in fans as they reduce the friction between moving and rotating parts. This allows the parts to operate smoothly and reduces overall wear on the moving components. Ball bearings offer multi-axis, low-friction options, while well-lubricated sleeve bearings exhibit quiet, low-friction qualities ideal for low-speed, linear operations.

Versatility

From automobile engines to industrial conveyors and computer hard drives, nearly every application that requires motion employs bearings. For this reason, bearings are designed and manufactured in a wide variety of configurations, including round ball bearings and cylindrical sleeve bearings. Ball bearings are ideal for applications in which fan speed and low friction are critical, while sleeve bearings offer the advantage of quieter operation for linear applications.

Applications that Utilize Ball Bearing and Sleeve Bearing Fans

Ball and sleeve bearings each have unique design characteristics that make them useful for particular applications. Some of the most common ball bearing designs include:

  • Angular contact bearings. Angular contact bearings are engineered to support both radial and axial loads. This type of bearing is ideal for heavy duty, high speed fans in pumps, electrical motors, and vehicle clutches.
  • Axial bearings. Axial bearings, also known as thrust bearings, are used to support axial loads, and are often used to facilitate low-friction movement of high-speed impellers for optimal air flow.
  • Deep-groove bearings. Deep-groove bearings are designed to facilitate radial and low axial loads, which makes them ideal for use in fans with high speed and low noise designations, such as ceiling and ventilation fans.
  • Linear bearings. Linear bearings allow for linear movement in one direction and are often used for vent and exhaust fans.
  • Self-aligning ball bearings. Self-aligning ball bearings consist of two separate rows of self-aligning balls ideal for radial and light axial loads in easily misaligned shaft assemblies.
  • High-speed angular contact bearings. High-speed angular contact bearings are designed to accommodate high speed operations with exceptional accuracy. This makes them perfect for fans in high performance applications that require low operating temperatures.

Advantages of Using Ball Bearing and Sleeve Bearing Fans

Sleeve bearings and ball bearings each offer distinct advantages for a variety of applications. Sleeve bearings are less expensive than most ball bearing designs and require less maintenance and installation time. They are also quieter at low speeds when compared to ball bearings.

Ball bearings generate less friction which creates less heat. The narrow design of ball bearings makes them easier to fit into complex and compact equipment, shortening the shaft and reducing the potential for deflection. They do not require as much lubrication as sleeve bearings, and they are able to carry both axial and radial loads, making them highly versatile. Ball bearings can also be stacked in tandem or back-to-back in order to increase their load carrying capacity.

PTI's Sealed Bearing System: The High Performance, Low-Cost Bearing Solution

Recent improvements in sleeve bearing manufacturing have not resolved the problem of oil leakage and dust contamination that occurs in the impeller side opening of the bearing. Pelonis Technologies' new “Sealed Bearing System” solves this problem by using a special sealer in the impeller side. Because the oil remains in the bearing without dust contamination, the sleeve life fan compares favorably to the life of the ball bearing fan, generating less noise and providing a shock resistant operation.

The Pelonis “Sealed Bearing System” is a practical solution for DC fan applications that require the benefits of both sleeve and ball bearings. The cost of the SBS technology is slightly higher than the conventional sleeve bearing technology but well below the ball technology. In addition, SBS reduces oil leakage and dust contamination associated with sleeve bearings, thus making SBS an ideal high performance/low cost environmental DC fan bearing solution.

Choose the Correct Fan: AC, DC, Centrifugal or Axial

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Feb 25, 2014 9:00:00 AM | 1 Comment

The biggest factor facing the longevity and efficiency of cooling fan motors inevitably concerns the ability of equipment to handle demands of friction and heat stress. A cooling dc fan motor could theoretically be in operation around the clock and in place for a longer overall lifespan than most other industrial equipment.

Fotosearch_k10105520Finding the right balance of power and cooling ability, counterpoised by energy efficiency and maintenance cost are key. It can be a daunting task, especially if the fan is responsible for cooling critical equipment. But, by following the steps below, you can be confident that you’ve made the right choice.

1. Consider Thermal Analysis

How much heat is the system estimated to generate? How many cubic feet per minute (CFMs) of air will need to be moved by a cooling fan to reach and maintain a proper, functional operating temperature?

Thermal resistance, surface temperatures of mechanisms within a unit, the temperature of fluids within an apparatus and their expansion potentials, and failing point of materials are all focal points when deciding on the proper cooling fan.

When conducting thermal analysis, the temperature source should be accounted for typical and worst-case scenarios. Once this is determined, an effective air–flow requirement can be established.

2. Determine the System Impedance

As air is taken into and exhausted from a cooling fan and therefore removed from equipment, a cooling system will lose air pressure. System Impedance is simply the sum of pressure drop throughout a system.

The more air paths—e.g. the more exhaust venting, intake valves, and overall system length and complexity within a cooling system—the greater the margin of error for controlling system impedance rises. Determining overall capacity and integrity of a cooling fan and connected systems will further enable efficient determinations of static pressure and needed ventilation can be established.

3. Determine if you actually need a fan, or if a blower makes more sense

Air flow and pressure dynamics are the biggest considerable differences between choosing a fan or blower system. Blowers operate against a high-pressure gradient and deliver air flow perpendicular to the blower axis.

In contrast, fans work against low pressure environments and produce high air flow rates parallel to their fan blade axis. Blowers create much higher air pressures and are generally much louder than fans. Blowers can be gear–driven air pumps and are most effective when dealing with a disparity of air pressure in an application.

Whether a fan is oriented centrifugally or axially is also a concern when choosing the proper cooling fan motor.

Centrifugal fans produce markedly higher air pressures and can handle more hostile operating conditions such as extreme heat or dryness. Physical strains placed upon units by virtue of their design, though, such as vortices or tip leakage flow can be problematic.

Axial fans, those which work like an airplane propeller, create an aerodynamic lift which pressurizes air. Although these fans are usually cheaper, smaller, and lighter than their centrifugal counterparts, they typically are noisier and can generate considerable vibrations which can be costly to manage. These vibrations could additionally add strain to the operation of the unit.

4. Consider the performance curve

The characteristics of each fan are represented graphically as performance curves. Curves can be developed for a number of conditions, including fan volume, system static pressure, fan speed, and brake horsepower. 

The intersection of the system curve with the static pressure curve is called the operating point. Power requirements are determined by plotting the operating point to the power curve. A fan’s performance curve should match the proposed operating point, so that the fan will sufficiently cool your system.

5. Choose a fan that fits your design

The last step is the easiest: choose a fan with the right size, weight, and design so that it can be integrated into your system.

RoHS Compliance - What Is It?

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Feb 3, 2014 8:50:00 AM | 0 Comments

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) is a directive from the European Union (EU) that restricts the use of six hazardous materials commonly found in electrical and electronic products. In particular, it specifies maximum levels for lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

All companies that sell electrical or electronic products or components to RoHS countries must adhere to these regulations. The EU will grant a company RoHS certification after reviewing its documentation, completing a thorough audit and performing on-site

Protecting Against the Dangers of Toxic Waste with RoHS

RoHSThe RoHS directive took effect in 2006 and was a response to increased public scrutiny on the impact of electronics on the environment. According to DoSomething.org, a non-profit organization that advocates for social change, electronic waste “represents 2 percent of America’s trash in landfills, but it equals 70 percent of overall toxic waste.” This waste can lead to death, illness and birth defects in all those who are exposed. To protect people against the dangers of toxic waste, a total of 27 countries now require RoHS compliant units.

The dangerous substances that RoHS seeks to control are found in a wide range of consumer electronics. Lead, one of these restricted substances, can be found in cables such as USB charging cables and power cords. Lead is also present in batteries, printed circuit board finishes, and the glass on television screens and cameras.

Cadmium, another restricted substance, is present in certain photocells and batteries. To achieve RoHS certification, companies must keep the amount of lead in their products below 1000 ppm, and cadmium below 100 ppm. They must also keep levels of hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers below 1000 ppm and mercury below 100 ppm.

Benefits of RoHS Compliance

In addition to a cleaner environment, companies that comply with the RoHS directive can expect to gain a number of benefits. Stricter regulations require “tighter process control, overall reduced number of defects and increased production efficiency.”

They also necessitate more communication across the supply chain and skills in the workforce. Finally, RoHS compliance confers a competitive advantage to manufacturers and companies for those markets that have just begun to consider the implementation of environmental standards. 

Companies in the consumer electronics industry can help reduce the danger of toxicity to humans and the environment by pursuing RoHS certification. They will also contribute to the growing momentum of initiatives concerning sustainability and energy efficiency.

Pelonis Technologies is one of those companies. At Pelonis, we are committed to developing fans and motors that are not only high-quality but also environmentally friendly. We’re proud to be a RoHS compliant company.

Fans & Blowers Experience Industrial Market Growth

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Jan 21, 2014 9:00:00 AM | 1 Comment

As in the U.S., the European manufacturing industry suffered deep consequences as a result of the recession of 2008.

Construction projects slowed or came to a complete halt, which hurt all sectors of the industry, including the market for fans, blowers, and heating elements.

According to some reports, however, the fan and blower industry seems poised for a comeback, which is welcome news for workers, manufacturers and customers in Europe and beyond.

Projected European Market Growth

Fotosearch_k15003822In 2011, Companies and Markets, a leading global aggregator of business information, released a report that analyzed 27 European Union countries to determine the health of the European market for ventilation equipment. They examined shipments of equipment such as axial fans, centrifugal fans, and cross flow fans, among others.

As a result of their research, Companies and Markets predicted that the European market would reach a value of about $6.75 billion by 2015. In other words, they expect that the market will grow by at least 8% more per year than in 2006, before the recession hit. In 2006, the European industry for fans was valued at $3.37 billion.

According to another report from Research and Markets on the UK market in particular, the ventilation industry—which includes both domestic and non-domestic ventilation products—has, in recent years, been revived “by positive levels of exports and after-market sales.”

The report attributes better sales to the government’s renewed focus on health, safety and energy efficiency. The data suggests that new building and environmental legislation set by the government has “stimulated product innovation and development.”

A Bright Future for the European Market

Hopeful forecasts from leading market researchers suggest that the European market for fans and blowers is likely to continue improving in the near future. As the world slowly recovers from the global financial crisis of 2007 and 2008, members of the industry can look forward to a reprieve from what was once a stagnant market.

Using Cooling Fans for 3D Printing

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Dec 12, 2013 11:48:24 AM | 3 Comments

Though 3D printing has been around since the 1980s, the process has only just begun to enter mainstream society.  A 3D printer works by depositing material, such as PLA thermoplastics, in layers until it has built up a physical object based on a digital file. In the past, these printers have been used to create jewelry, prototypes, industrial parts and more. As an increasing number of manufacturers, hobbyists and companies experiment with the potentials of this process, they’ve also developed new methods to improve the quality of the end product. One of those methods is to use a cooling fan to improve bridging and overhang performance.

Fotosearch_k14489016A cooling fan is crucial for good overhang performance on a PLA 3D printed product. It can be programmed to operate at different speeds during the printing process, which has several desirable consequences. Running a fan constantly during printing is detrimental to the final product. It can cause stringing, a defect in which “small threads of plastic are trailed into undesirable areas.” Stringing occurs when the machine is unable to remove the force that pushes the thermoplastic filament out of the nozzle quickly enough. Using a fan at different speeds also makes the quality of a 3D print more consistent and less dependent on the temperature of the environment at the time.

There are several other factors to consider when implementing a PLA cooling fan. Cooling reduces the level of adhesion to the bed surface, so the fan should not be used while the first few layers of the item are built up. It must also not be directed toward the hot end of the printer, as this will naturally alter the temperature of the nozzle and thus affect the heated PLA material. Lastly, fans should not be used when printing items with ABS, another commonly used thermoplastic material used in 3D printing. This is because ABS is prone to cracking when cooled.

Before embarking on a 3D printing project that requires the printer to print across gaps or create overhangs at sharp angles, you might consider the use of a cooling fan. For 3D prints made of PLA material, a cooling fan can be a crucial factor in obtaining high-quality prints. When used correctly, a fan will reduce stringing, thus helping you achieve a cleaner, more appealing final product.

AC Cross Flow Fans in Beer Dispensing Applications

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Oct 16, 2013 9:00:00 AM | 0 Comments

To the beer enthusiast, especially during football season, there are few things better than an ice cold brew at your favorite restaurant. While we can appreciate any kind of beer, at Pelonis, our focus is on high-end beer dispensing equipment.

pelonis4Beer dispensers, believe it or not, were first introduced in the late 19th century. In the beginning, they were served through casks and eventually moved to kegs, but the first home dispensers didn’t make an appearance until the latter part of the 20th century. Now, our fans are doing their part to keep the beer cold when coming out of the tap at restaurants and hotels—and keeping customers happy.

For companies looking to bring our high-end equipment into their facility, we have more than a dozen AC cross flow fans that can suit any application. Our most popular selection is our AC cross flow fan JE-030A series, which is a temperature-resistant aluminum alloy and has a maximum pressure of 0.8mmAq to 1.7mmAq.

Keep Pelonis in mind next time you order an on-tap beer at your favorite restaurant, and if you’re an engineer looking to spec a similar fan for a similar application or an application like beer dispensing that has the same challenges, give us a call.
