We design and manufacture various EC axial fans used for a wide range of applications which include from general ventilation to Heat dissipation, meanwhile, there are many different sizes and capacities to suit your specific needs. Now, let’s learn more about EC axial fan.
What is the EC axial fan?
An EC axial fan is a kind of special axial fan with an electric motor designed to move air in a direction perpendicular to the axis of the fan, When working, EC axial fans are more efficient than traditional electric motors and quieter as well. EC axial fans are available in a variety of sizes and speeds, which can be used for a variety of applications.
How do EC axial fans work?
When it comes to how EC axial fans work, the first important thing we need to know is about the EC electric motor, The EC motor is a special motor that uses electronic commutation instead of brushes and commutator, which has a lot of advantages, such as higher efficiency, lower electromagnetic interference, and no brush arcing. How does it work in an EC axial fan? Simply speaking, the basic principle is that the fan blades are mounted on a shaft connected to the rotor of the motor. The stator contains the windings that generate the magnetic field required to rotate the rotor. As the rotor turns, it creates airflow.
How to measure the performance of EC axial fans?
EC axial fans are one of the most popular fans in industrial environments, which are known well for high efficiency and low operating costs. However, we should know a few things below when measuring the performance of EC axial fans.
- We need to confirm the airflow, There are two optional ways, cubic meters per hour(m³/h) or cubic feet per minute(CFM).
- We need to confirm the static pressure drop, which can be measured in Pascal (Pa) or mmH2O, or inH2O.
- We need to take into account the power consumption of the fan.
What are the benefits of EC axial fans?
EC axial fans have many more benefits than standard AC fans, including a higher protection class and improved efficiency. EC axial fans are also more compact and can offer greater flexibility in terms of installation.
EC axial fans can be widely used in many fields, including both commercial and industrial. It is ideal for use in environments where there is a risk of dust or other contaminants entering the fan because of a high protection class. EC axial fans are also more efficient than standard AC fans, which means it costs less energy to operate.
The compact size of EC axial fans also makes them easier to install than larger AC fans. EC axial fans are so flexible that they can be installed in a wide range of locations, especially for use in difficult-to-reach places.
What are the drawbacks of EC axial fans?
Apart from many advantages, EC axial fans have some drawbacks, such as, unsuitable for use in sun-drenched storage facilities, and also easy to cause fires if they are not properly installed.
How to choose the fit EC axial fan?
To choose the right EC axial fan, we have to understand what they are and how they work. EC axial fans are designed to move air efficiently and quietly due to their inlet cone that is aerodynamically shaped. This results in less turbulence and resistance, allowing the fan to operate more smoothly.
Additionally, EC axial fans typically can produce a higher airflow than other types of fans, which makes them ideal for spaces that require strong ventilation.
When selecting an EC axial fan, it is important to consider the size of the space that needs to be ventilated as well as the specific needs of that space. For example, if the goal is to reduce noise levels, then a quieter model may be necessary. It is also important to ensure that the chosen fan will be able to meet the airflow requirements of the space.
