The Right Balance in Ventilation: Multifan Introduces Vplus - Permanent Magnet Motor at IPPE

11 January 2017
Vostermans Ventilation

US - Multifan, the dedicated agricultural fan manufacturer, is addressing the need for more energy efficient fans in agricultural applications, by introducing of the permanent magnet motor in their Fiberglass Cone Vplus 54.

This fan ranks amongst the highest in airflow performance/efficiency and will be introduced at IPPE Atlanta.

Ventilation affects the quality of animal environment as well as farm operating costs, specifically energy costs. Air exchange is critical to providing a healthy climate by reducing humidity and noxious gases like ammonia and carbon dioxide. Since under-ventilation creates an unhealthy environment and over-ventilation wastes valuable heating and electrical energy, finding the right balance in ventilation is key. Fan selection is important since fans are the engines of the ventilation system.

Selecting the right fan results in more efficient bird growth, a healthy animal environment and reduction of the carbon footprint by the energy savings gained.

Variable speed fan for more energy saving

To fulfil this need for a super efficient variable speed fan with substantial energy savings, Multifan introduces the Fiberglass (FG) Cone Vplus fan. By implementing the latest insights in motor research, Multifan developed the next step in their breakthrough in energy consumption. This fan with permanent magnet motor and Multifan Fan Drive for adjusting the speed is their answer to the energy challenge. Over-ventilation is avoided and the total number of fans is reduced by the high air performance. The CFM/watt efficiency numbers are objectively measured by Bess Labs, unbiased source of performance data for ventilation fans (1).

FGCone Vplus fan ranks amongst the highest in airflow performance/efficiency and air flow ratio (2).

Suitable for new and existing confinements

Multifan, a true manufacturer of proven fans and motors since 60 years, has made sure this new fan is mechanically compatible and interchangeable with current fan designs. By this way existing farms are able to profit from the improvements of the FGCone Vplus fan.

Suitable for both new projects and renovations, the fan will be made available with different shutter options (aluminum, butterfly, PVC, insulated PVC) to guarantee maximal flexibility for different environments. Thanks to the material knowledge gained by Multifan over decades in agricultural ventilation, the motor is guaranteed for longlasting frequent use in the most aggressive climates.

What do customers say?

Clint Jaeger, Brenneman Pork, USA: ”Effect on the animals by the Vplus fan is significant. The amount of CFM the fans move is large, which makes a very dry environment for the hogs inside my barn.”

Brandon Bell, Keota, Iowa, USA: “This fan is 30 per cent more efficient. Energy savings are very important to me as entrepreneur, especially if you get the same performance; it pays back directly to your bottom line.”
