Cross flow fans from Pelonis Technologies are constructed from a temperature-resistant aluminum alloy to withstand high heat environments. Characterized by a long, rectangular shape, cross flow fans are ideal for areas where space is limited. They are available in AC, DC and high-efficiency EC types, as well as numerous sizes and efficiencies for any application. Our cross flow fans are specially designed to minimize vibration and maintain a low noise ratio.

Advantages of Cross Flow Fans

Used widely throughout the HVAC and electronics industries, cross flow fans produce an even laminar airflow to keep components from overheating. Cross flow fans deliver a fairly two-dimensional flow and can be mounted horizontally or vertically. This type of fan is commonly used in a variety of commercial and industrial applications.

Due to their characteristics, they produce a number of advantages over other types of fans, including:

  • More compact with a long, shallow front
  • Greater efficiency relative to smaller pressure and placement
  • Long-throw direct ventilation
  • Controllable versatility
  • Low load requirements when throttled
  • Lower speed
  • Minimal noise


Cross flow fans from Pelonis Technologies also include a variety of value-added benefits. We implement special coating methods to reduce motor winding noise and improve the service life of our products. We also use high-quality bearings with proven quality standards to ensure that our products meet the highest performance expectations.

Types of Cross Flow Fans

There are three main types of cross flow fans, including AC, DC, and high-efficiency EC cross flow fans. Each type provides a unique set of characteristics that make them a viable solution for different applications.

AC Cross Flow Fans

The major distinction between a centrifugal fan and an AC cross flow fan has to do with the method of air flow. The AC cross flow fan features transverse airflow that passes directly through the fan twice rather than through an inlet. Featuring quieter airflow, a compact airflow, and a high-pressure coefficient, these fans are an ideal choice for electronics and appliance applications using an AC power source.

DC Cross Flow Fans

DC cross flow fans offer an ideal solution for equipment powered by a 12V, 24V, or 48V DC power source, providing efficient parallel airflow to the cooled unit, lower noise, and reduced vibration. DC cross flow fans offer third wire options such as:

  • Signal rotation detection
  • Signal-frequency generator function
  • Operating temperature control
  • A variety of single and two-fan mounting options

High-Efficiency EC Cross Flow Fans

High-efficiency EC cross flow fans are centrifugal fans which introduce airflow through the fan instead of an inlet. These fans use electronically commutated motors, which function on AC power but generate magnetic fields in the fashion of a brushless DC motor. These properties give this fan the best features of AC and DC fans for maximum energy efficiency. EC cross flow fans feature long service life, precise control, and versatile speed capabilities. 

Industries and Applications

Cross flow fans and blowers provide the best solution in instances requiring uniform and broad airflow in limited space combined with high-pressure and velocity at low noise and vibration levels. Examples of use cases for cross flow fans include:

  • Drying units
  • Air curtains
  • Melting machines
  • Transformer air cooling
  • Automotive air conditioning
