Capital or Operating Cost?07 May 2015
ITALY - The theory “What goes up must come down” does not always apply to energy cost; there may be fluctuations but the trend will always be up for the foreseeable future, says Termotecnica Pericoli.
So the question is: initial capital outlay/purchase price of equipment or operating cost?
It is common knowledge that cone fans are more capital intense but the converse is they are more efficient than the conventional or box exhaust fan (10 to 15 per cent).
The delta in efficiency will vary between brands and many other features in design, location and application.
The Pericoli EOC 53 stands out amongst the competitors due to:
- Shutter flaps – inlet side of the fan:
- providing a clean undisturbed laminar flow of air to the propeller blades
- clean undisturbed rotational discharge from the propellers into the cone maximising venturi effect
- reduced condensation within the fan housing.
- Cone angle: optimises the venturi effect
- Six-blade propeller design out performs competitor under increased static press
- Unique shutter blade mounting and shutter sockets effective seal eliminating both light and unwanted air when fans are not operational.
- Aerodynamic propeller hub and main pulley, Motor position, rigid body housing with ease of access for service and maintenance.
It is therefore clear that the “difference is in the details” and the EOC 53 delivers all the advantages of a truly efficient, robust cone fan - a robust cost-effective option for all extraction fan requirements.
