HVAC • Fans

Fans are simple machines that create air flow when the fan blades rotate. Fan types include axial fans, centrifugal fans and crossflow fans.

  A fan is a device that consists of a rotating set of vanes or blades placed inside of a housing to create air flow. Most fans are powered by electric motors, but some have hydraulic motors and internal combustion engines. The result is high volume, low pressure air flow for climate control, ventilation, fume extraction, dust removal, drying, or personal comfort. Fans come in three main types. Axial-flow units force air to move parallel to the shaft on which the blades rotate; this includes table fans, ceiling fans, and computer cooling fans. Centrifugal fans blow air at right angles relative to the intake of the fan, and spin air outwards for applications such as leaf blowers, blow dryers, and air mattress inflators. Lastly, crossflow fans cause air to move transversely across the impeller; they are typically found in HVAC units. Leading manufacturers: Dyson, Hunter Fan, Greenheck, Continental Fan, Panasonic and NuTone.
