Termotecnica Pericoli Launches New EWD Exhaust Fan12 March 2015
ITALY - Termotecnica Pericoli S.r.l. is always striving for innovation and perfection in engineering through thinking outside the box and the new EWD fan range is a classic example of this.
The new EWD range – three models EWD 26:31 & 37 – is focused on the use of direct drive motors in appropriately sized fans to maximize the characteristics and advantages of direct drive motors, a new propeller blade design and the introduction of a newly patented shutter mechanism.
- Direct drive motors contribute to greater efficiencies by removing energy losses, resulting in greater efficiencies compared to belt driven fans as well as requiring fewer parts, less likelihood of failure.
- The newly designed propeller blade has resulted in a higher airflow
- The redesigned, engineered and patented shutter mechanism is an innovation and evolution of the current single arm mechanism, improving on the opening of the shutters at an even lower rpm.
In addition, the new design removes all of the side thrust on the bearing – greater load optimisation – contributing to an extended bearing life and reduced drag, once again adding to the overall fans performance and efficiency.
The overall increase in efficiency of the new range of extraction fans is the combination of increased airflow (15 to 20 per cent) and reduction in power consumption (six to 35 per cent) through innovative engineering and in-house testing during the development and design stages.
Lower maintenance is a natural offshoot of the Innovation, Quality and Performance the industry has come to rely on from the Pericoli brand.
