C-ALU FANS RESIST 300°C TEST
News 03/11/2014

HW Ventilation is glad to announce that C-ALU aluminum fan performance characteristics at high temperatures have been successfully tested and confirmed by Applus+, an independent 3rd party accredited laboratory.

The fan chosen for the test – a 16-blade diameter 1090mm CL-ALU – has been subjected to the conditions indicated in the European standards UNE EN 12101-3:2002 and UNE EN 12101-3:2002/AC:2006 “Specifications for powered smoke and heat exhaust ventilators”, with the purpose of determining the performance of the blades during the test at a temperature of 200°C for two hours, and subsequently at 300°C for one hour.

TEST SETUP AND RESULTS
The fan has been coupled with a 4 poles, 11 kW electric motor and has been working at 400 V, 50 Hz, 2.75 kW and 1000 rpm during the entire test. The fan has been tested with the inlet and outlet airflow in horizontal direction.

Given the results of the test, Applus+ Laboratories could conclude that the blades of C-ALU fan complied with the European standard UNE EN 12101-3:2002 and UNE EN 12101-3:2002/AC:2006, having maintained their performance characteristics at 200°C for 2 hours, and 300°C for 1 hour!
