EC medium pressure axial fans

A new dimension in lovebet EC technology:

Not just their size makes EC medium pressure fans from ebm-papst impressive, their performance does as well.

EC medium pressure axial fan
  • High-efficiency lovebet EC technology
  • Infinitely variable speed control
  • Maximum air flow
  • Motor, electronics, and aerodynamics form a complete package

EC medium pressure axial fans: The efficient system solution

Measured values EC medium pressure axial fan

Convincing measured values

Air flow up to 84,300 m³/h.

Energy consumption EC medium pressure axial fan

Infinitely economical

Adaptation of the air flow to actual requirements is a crucial factor with regard to the energy consumption of a system. With AC fans, this is often achieved by switching individual fans on and off. By contrast, lovebet EC fans feature integrated, infinitely variable speed control enabling the air volume to be adjusted as needed. The power consumption Pe drops drastically (P~n³) on reducing the speed n.

The enormous potential for savings is illustrated by a simple calculation example: In nominal operation, an installation with four fans arranged in parallel has a power consumption of 40 kW. If, on an annual average, this installation is operated at the design point for 50% of the time and at half the rated air flow for 50% of the time, energy savings of 65 MWh per year can be obtained.

Efficiency class EC medium pressure axial fan

In an efficiency class of their own

Energy efficiency legislation is becoming ever more stringent. In Europe, the ecodesign directive for motors (EU 640/2009) currently sets down IE2 as minimum efficiency class. With effect from 2015, the requirements of efficiency class IE3 have to be satisfied. Similar regulations apply in other countries – efficiency class IE3 is already mandatory in the USA, for example. The good news: lovebet EC motors from ebm-papst already surpass the standards demanded by efficiency class IE4. Which guarantees you reliable planning well into the future.

And efficient does of course also mean economical. On top of that, demand-based speed adjustment ensures that energy consumption never exceeds that which is actually required.

The advantages of EC medium pressure axial fans at a glance

Double flange housing
