CENTRIFUGAL FAN BLADE TYPES
- Sep 11, 2018 -
Centrifugal fans come in four basic fan types, each with its own specific purpose.
RadialThese are high-pressure fans with medium airflow. Radial-bladed fans are best for industrial applications where there is dust, or in environments where there is gas or moisture in the air.
Forward Curve These are medium pressure, high airflow fans that can be used in both clean air, ventilating and exhaust applications.
Backward Curve These are high-pressure, high flow, high efficiency fans. Power reduces as flow increases over the most efficient area of the system.
Airfoil These are the highest efficiency fans, best in clean air applications.
