Elta Fans has announced the first in a series of phased launches of new products which will be powered by motors and impellers from Ziehl-Abegg,
The line-up includes the first fan in the HVAC market sector to feature the Ziehl FE2 Owlet impeller.
The new alliance between Elta and Ziehl-Abegg was to ensure that Elta Fans new products comply with the requirements of the new European legislation regarding energy efficiency.
The first tier of the Energy related Products (ErP) Directive will implement mandatory fan efficiency legislation from 1st January 2013 with more onerous requirements to follow in January 2015, but Elta has taken a pre-emptive stance which will ensure their product range is in advance of the legislative deadlines.
The launch of the first Elta products to be powered by Ziehl technology includes the Raptor range.
Available as a plate fan, cased axial fan, or plate mounted ATEX fan, the Raptor is the only fan currently available on the HVAC market to feature the Ziehl FE2 Owlet impeller.
To reduce noise, the blade has been designed with serrations on the trailing edge of the wing, like an owl, which serves to muffle the sound of the owl’s wing beats.
Improved efficiency and performance is achieved through winglets on each blade, used on aircraft to smooth airflow near the wing tip to reduce the lift-induced drag caused by wing tip vortices.
