Modular fans

  • 18-Jan-2010 02:21 EST

Horton WindShift modular fans are suitable for various applications and optimal fan drive cooling in the off-highway, industrial, and other specialty markets. Clamshell knuckles clamp the blades at precise pitch angles, offering flexibility for customer specifications and accelerating the testing and prototyping stages. The blade design is computer optimized to provide efficient cooling; if testing shows a different pitch angle or blade configuration would improve cooling for an application, the knuckle clamp feature better enables modification of the fan design. Customers specify blade configuration, pitch angle, center disk diameter, and rotation. Equally spaced blade configuration options are offered with 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, or 13 blades. Staggered blade configurations, which help to reduce noise, also are available. Pitch width ranges from 3.08 to 6.32 in (78 to 161 mm), and fan diameter ranges from 30 to 48 in (762 to 1219 mm).
