The right radial fans for your system
The range of applications for radial fans is huge, as every ventilation system needs a radial fan to supply energy. Ideally, the equipment will be perfectly matched to the operational situation in question so that it can work successfully and at a high level of efficiency.
At Scheuch COMPONENTS, radial fans are available in a wide range of designs, and tailored models are offered too.
What is a radial fan?
Radial fans are continuous-flow machines that generate a high pressure in their surroundings with a low air volume.
How does a radial fan work?
The fan brings the air flow together and channels it in its concentrated state in one direction. This is known as a centrifugal function principle. The air is first taken in parallel to the drive axis. The rotation of the radial impeller then diverts the air flow by 90° and it is blown back out radially. Radial fans have an exceptional degree of efficiency and are capable of transporting a volume flow of up to 1,500,000 Am³ per hour and generating a pressure increase of up to 30,000 Pa.
Multiple fans boost the effect
If you want to boost the pressure increase of radial fans, you can install multiple units in succession.
If you install multiple fan units with radial fans next to each other in a parallel configuration, this increases the volume flow. These methods are used in factory halls or commercial kitchens, for example.
Available radial fan designsModels and types at a glance
Scheuch COMPONENTS offers various radial fan designs to match your individual requirements and the environment in which they are to operate. A wide variety of drive types (e.g. with belt drive or direct drive), impeller types (e.g. forward or backward curved) and model series means you are sure to find the right design for your needs.
Type of drive:
Impeller type – dependent on:
- Impeller diameter
- Impeller curve (forward or backward curved)
- Impeller width
Radial fan for extraction
Robust and high-quality radial fans are not only suitable for use as ventilation machines, they can also be used to provide extraction. This method of extraction is deployed in a range of fields, including the process air technology sector.
Whether dust, gas, grains, plastic or wood particles – extraction is absolutely no problem for radial fans. The same is also true when it comes to hot vapours and aerosols.
The benefits of radial fans from Scheuch COMPONENTS
- Large pressure increase
- Complete series and nominal widths for various applications
- Extraction or ventilation
- Straightforward commissioning process
You can also use our additional and safety equipment for radial fans to make using them even more convenient and safe.
How is the sound generated by the fans attenuated?
Radial fans generate sound which must be reduced in order to protect employees and neighbours.
Scheuch COMPONENTS offers a comprehensive range of industrial soundproofing solutions. This includes:
• Pipe silencers
• Baffle silencers
• Fan insulation
• Soundproofing cabinets
Sound measurements, analyses and calculations will be carried out in order to accurately assess the situation at your site.
Where are radial fans used?
Industrial radial fans are used wherever potentially explosive air or air that contains chemicals, fats or odours needs to be transported in large volumes – for example, in industrial processes, at petrol stations, in laboratories, storerooms for hazardous goods, boiler rooms or commercial kitchens.
