Axial Flow and Centrifugal Flow Classifications
The axial flow fan is well known around the average household as a ceiling fan: the motor spins blades around a hub, which moves air parallel to the axis of rotation. This type of blower is primarily used in ventilation systems.
A centrifugal blower uses centrifugal forces to rotate the blades. The flow of air or gas is moved around a fixed point, allowing sediments in the air to be caught. This very fact makes them great for pollution control, but they also serve as a high-pressure cooling mechanism. Examples around the household would include a hair dryer, leaf blower, or air mattress inflation device.
Some product information and kinds of fans we offer:
- Centrifugal and Axial Fans
- Sizes from 1/12 to 500 HP and everything in between
- Capacity selections are available up to 425,000 CFM
- Pressure selections up to 110" SP
Centrifugal Fans blow air at right angles to the intake of the fan, and spin the air outwards to the outlet (by deflection and centrifugal force). The Centrifugal Fan has a moving component (called an impeller) that consists of a central shaft about which a set of blades are positioned.
The Axial Fans have blades that force air to move parallel to the shaft about which the blades rotate. Axial fans blow air along the axis of the fan, linearly, hence their name. This type of fan is used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from small cooling fans for electronics to the giant fans used in wind tunnels.
