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.
