Type P Vaneaxial Fan, Belt Driven
The VPBD, Type “P”, vaneaxial fan is ideal for installation in hospitals, schools, research labs, fume exhaust systems and high moisture areas. The fan housing is fitted with aerodynamically designed, stationary straightening guide vanes on the air discharge side of the propeller. The guide vanes are welded to both the inner cylinder and the fan housing interior. The vanes function to aid in the elimination of swirl and turbulence downstream of the fan, thereby recovering rotational energy losses, improving efficiency and static pressure capability, and reducing fan noise generation.
The heart of the VPBD, Type “P” fan lies in its propeller. Cast of high strength aluminum alloy, the one-piece propeller has been developed to maximize the highest efficiency possible. With the wide range of hub-to-tip ratios available, the VP can fan meet an impressive assortment of air moving requirements.
