Horton introduces an online application that offers users access to the company’s airflow management knowledge. The Airflow System Configurator identifies the fan model and design of Horton’s plastic, modular, and metal fans used in on- and off-highway, stationary, and industrial equipment. When a user enters design parameters, the web-based application processes the data and provides fan options/recommendations based on test results; links show fan performance curves for the specific configuration. Users seeking plastic fan configurations receive a part number and a reference drawing with general and mounting dimensions. Horton’s application features the ability to include immersion and downstream restriction as parameters for evaluating fan performance. The application is continually updated with test data and designs, and users can watch videos or view PDFs to learn to use the system.
