From the 1st January 2001, ISO 12499 "Industrial fans - Mechanical fan safety - Protection", the installer and end user are directed as folows: "If the fans rotating parts become accessible during service, the power supply must be completely isolated. In those circumstances, a power supply isolation unit must be placed next to the fan to enable as positive isolation of the unit during maintenance.

To conform to this international standard, all fans must be installed with a local isolating switch.

A large choice of electrical equipment, whatever your starting (method), to make you life easier: - Pre-wired electrical control panels (Star, Star Delta, double speed ...). - Pre-wired frequency inverters for fan performance control. - Safety switch (standard or explosion proof).

Basic Fan selection information ?


High fan efficiencies, low sound power levels, high performance, small surface area and long life are obtained from the fans design and selection according to the given criteria.

Fan selection is derived from:


the nature of the air to be moved and fan environmental conditions. design requirements (volume, pressure...). drive arrangement and discharge direction, available space, accessories and options...

6 different types of impellers for all applications: D, B, P, L, S, T.

Centripal EU small sizes - Clean air applications


Medium pressures

Features
Centripal EU fans for clean air applications: D- type hollow airfoil blades. These are available in 2 impeller widths (L, M). High efficiency levels are obtained with D-type impellers: aerofoil, i.e.,aerodynamically shaped blades matching the inlet cone, reduce shocks produced at wheel entry, resulting in smooth air flow across the blade surface and eliminating eddy currents producing turbulence and noise. Low absorbed powers, high fan efficiencies and low sound power levels.

Typical applications
General ventilation. Boilers and furnaces. Heat treatment. Dehumidification. Smoke exhaust systems. Air conditioning.

Centripal EU small sizes - Dust-laden air applications


Medium pressures

Features
Centripal EU fans for dust-laden air applications. Backward inclined blades (P and L). These are available in 2 impeller widths (L, M). Centrifugal force and blade inclination combine to peel off dust, significantly reducing particle build-up on the impeller. The P type impeller with its sharply inclined blades is most suitable for slightly dust-laden, non-clogging air applications. Slightly inclined, the L-blade impeller is designed for handling slightly clogging, particle-laden abrasive air and corrosive gases.

Typical applications
Furnace burner supply air. Dust separators. Coating machine dedusting. Dusty (cement factories, steel mills) or humid (paper mills, dyeing) environment ventilation systems.

System design recommendations


Design considerations
Our fan performance curves are based on tests performed with optimum installation conditions. The inlet ducts were circular and were connected in a true alignment to the fan inlets with our standard aerodynamic inlet cones fitted. and a discharge duct equipped with an outlet extension connected to a straight measuring duct. Friction loss (system pressure) data is usually available from the duct system manufacturers catalogues. Published data is based on uniform air intake at the fan inlet. It is very rare that a real installation meets the ideal condition, it must therefore be noted that the entire system effect be taken into account to calculate the true performance requirements of the fan, i.e. All duct system components and non-uniform air intake to the fan will have an affect on the fan performance A particular ductwork component located too close to either the fan inlet or outlet will adversely affect the friction loss factors.

Inlet connections
Inlet spin
The various connections shown below all cause air spin at the fan inlet. Air spin is generally either in the direction of, or opposite to the direction of rotation of the fan impeller. If it is opposite to direction of rotation of the impeller, the power consumption will be increased.

If it is in the direction of impeller rotation, capacity will be reduced along with power consumption. Using guide vanes either upstream or in the bends can minimize loss of capacity and static pressure. The friction loss caused by such vanes will need to be added to overall system loss.

There are two solutions to this problem:


Non-uniform airflow at the fan inlet can be corrected with the use of guide vanes. We suggest that you contact our engineering department for the selection of such equipment.

b) Reverse spin

Non-uniform inlet air velocity


Duct bends at the fan inlet usually cause poor inlet distribution, with the higher air velocities at the outer radius of the bend (fig. 1).

Fig. 1

The problem can be corrected by:


installing a straight section of at least 5 duct diameters (L) between the fan inlet and the bend. installing vanes in the bend at a minimum distance of twice the inlet diameter of the fan inlet (L). increasing the duct diameter before the fan, thereby increasing the radius of the bend. In this case, a converging section should be located at the fan inlet. Duct diameters should not exceed 1.5 times the fan inlet diameter.

Fan capacity may be adversely affected when the space between 2 fans or between the fan inlet and the wall is too small (fig.2). The minimum distances shown should correct the problem.
d

Discharge connections
Bends, louver dampers connected directly to the fan outlet. Discharge velocities are not uniform at the fan outlet (fig. 3), which is why duct system components installed immediately downstream of the fan will cause high pressure drops. A good duct layout should have components installed at a minimum distance of: 3x 4 (a x b) In certain installations where it is necessary to install ductwork components near to the fan outlet, the capacity loss may be minimized by the use of a diverging duct section immediately after the outlet (fig. 4). The length of the section should be such that its discharge velocity equals the mean fan inlet velocity measured in the plane of the cone.

Outlet Free
With discharge velocities not being uniform at the fan outlet as shown, an additionnal pressure loss will be incurred, the magnitude of which will depend on the size of fan used, is to be added when the fan discharges directly into a plenum as the cross sectional area of the duct is larger than fan discharge area.
