ebm-papst has launched AxiBlade, a new generation of optimized axial fans. They are based on a modular system, with fan housings of varying heights and an aerodynamically optimized inlet ring. These components are complemented by profiled impeller geometry and winglets for higher efficiency. The impellers have been designed for the various motors they are able to be combined with, which increases efficiency and reduces running noise. Exhaust turbulence and the resulting dynamic losses can also be minimized due to the guide vanes. The guard grilles are matched to the various combinations and aerodynamically optimized. They protect against accidental contact and contribute to the overall efficiency of the axial fans. Due to their modularity, AxiBlade fans can operate in a wide variety of applications with an optimum efficiency of up to 54%.
A noise reduction of up to 8 dB(A) can be achieved compared to standard axial fans. The new axial fan’s footprint corresponds to the current industry standard, hence virtually no design changes to the end unit are necessary. Besides the energy-efficient GreenTech EC motors, AxiBlade models are also available with AC motors.
