Air Control Industries has added three fans – the VBL12/3, VBL14/3 and VBL16/3 – to its Slimline range, intended for enclosure/cabinet cooling and fume extraction.

The fans have been introduced to extend the performance capabilities of the range to expand potential applications into areas involving higher air volumes and pressures.

The VBL12/3, VBL14/3 and VBL16/3 fans are three-phase units and therefore intended for more demanding industrial applications than the existing single-phase units.

In addition, because they are centrifugal fans, they offer high power-to-size performance, according to the company.

The fans are driven by a high-efficiency inside out motor with the impeller mounted on an external rotor that rotates around a central fixed stator.

This design employs the impeller to operate as an efficient heat sink for cooler running, while the rotor becomes a high-resistance unit to facilitate speed control.

Precision balancing of moving components smoothes operation and provides quiet operation while ensuring reduced wear on bearings for extended working life.

Airflow rates for Air Control Industries’ new fans reach up to 8,500m3/hr (5,000cfm) with operating pressures up to 1,180 pascals (4.75in.SWG).
