Industrial ceiling fans are designed to be powerful, reliable, and highly efficient. These high volume low speed fans are intended to push massive amounts of air and compared to the standard five speed conventional fan, they offer as much as 84% energy savings, which is always good news for businesses.
Whether running a warehouse, office complex, restaurant, or some other commercial business, the industrial ceiling fan will make the workplace more comfortable and efficient. Best of all, just as you would with a home ceiling fan, you can choose fans that have both forward and reverse options so your building can be cooled in the summer and heated during the winter. Additionally, these fans help with air ventilation, which is perfect for many business types.
To give you an idea of what to expect, the standard size for the industrial fan is 20-feet in diameter although you will find overhead fans that come in sizes ranging form 8 to 24-inches in diameter. These fans have standard mounting hardware for clamping onto beams easily. Remember that the fans are controlled with panels for both speed and acceleration. Typically, the hub of these fans is made from cast aluminum, the blades from anodized aluminum, and the drive is a Lenze gear reducer.
In addition to being 20-feet in diameter, the height is 25.5-feet tall and the fan weighs a whopping 265 pounds. Other features include one horsepower motors, fan speed of 48 RPM, average air speed from three to seven MPH, and an amazing air reach from the center of the fan to 60-feet. For these reasons, you can see why the industrial fan is so beneficial and efficient.
Another option is a vertical fan. For example, MacroAir Technologies makes an industrial fan that is an eight-foot, self0enclosed vertically mounted fan. This type of fan is the ideal choice for mezzanines and similar applications. The standard warranty is lifetime coverage on the hub and blades and then an additional three years on all the other components.
Other options include the fan made by MacroAir. They offer a custom made one to two horsepower motor that includes a 200-degree C moisture-resistant ISR magnet wire. Other features include Helical gear reducers to ensure reliable and quiet operation. Additionally, the fan is designed to be vibration free and will last a long time. The engineering expertise and technology of this fan makes it a great choice for industrial use.
MacroAir also designs controllers that feature Variable Frequency Drives, variable speed control so you can ramp the speed of the fan up slowly and then easily adjust the fan speed for various situations, built-in overload protector, line reactors, both of which provide protection to the fan from spikes in voltage, and these controllers can work with most environmental systems.
