ebm-papst has introduced a new line of corrosion-free axial fans with integrated energy-saving EC technology.
The fans have been specifically engineered for use in agricultural applications, such as animal breeding and feeding, greenhouses and food storage.
The company says it has developed the fans to offer increased corrosion protection, ensuring the fans can be safely operated in almost all climate conditions.
The new line of fans uses up to 70 per cent less energy than legacy AC equipment which remains prevalent in the marketplace.
In addition to providing improved efficiency, the fans within the agricultural portfolio are claimed to offer excellent speed controllability and strong acoustic performance and come in a wide-range of sizes to suit a variety of applications.

“We have already undertaken several projects in the UK, including one with the Potato Council, each of which has delivered tangible savings that positively impact on the bottom line.”
“We look forward to working closely with those in the agriculture sector to create greater savings.”
