Rite-Hite has introduced the Revolution Fan?a high-volume/low-speed (HV/LS) industrial fan that provides more consistent air circulation and ventilation with better energy efficiency than traditional high-speed ceiling fans or industrial floor fans. The end result, says the company, is increased employee comfort and productivity for lower overall cost.
According to Dan Anderson, product manager - Environment Control Solutions, the Revolution Fan's innovative blade design moves more air than traditional fans while saving up to 30 percent in energy costs?equating to a payback in as little as six months. With just four contoured anodized aluminum blades, the Revolution Fan also outperforms other HV/LS fans with six or 10 blades. The unique design moves air more consistently across the whole blade, creating an industry-high airflow of more than 360,000 actual cubic feet per minute.
At the heart of the Revolution Fan's advanced design is the anodized aluminum Propell-Aire blade that varies in width and pitch angle. The shape is impossible to produce with extruded blades used on other HV/LS fans. Additionally, the blades are attached to the hub by a pivot, which allows the blades to rise to their working position. The pivot itself is surrounded by a vibration-absorbing resilient material that reduces stress by 50 to 75 percent to maximize fan life. Available in 12-, 16-, 20- and 24-foot diameters, the Revolution Fan uses steel universal mounting brackets for easy installation. The mounting system includes a beam clamp, motor housing, stabilization cables and a three-way motor-to-hub safety connection. A robust motor and extruded, precision-milled aluminum hub provide reliable operation with virtually no maintenance.
