Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

(OP)
Dear All,
I want to choose a blower/fan, for nearly 1,00000 cfm flow rate.

I am searching for a compact blower for this flow rate and low static pressure requirement.

Please suggest
1. Type of fan
2. type of blade
etc,
Considering low space and power requirement.

Thank you

RE: Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

1 - A big one
2 - high flow low head is usually a axial / propeller type.

You need to define "compact" and low space and low power with numbers.

RE: Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

What is it for? I'm reading it as one hundred thousand and not 1 CFM... For this sort of size, they would be typically a belt driven centrifugal blower?

Power is based on your flow requirement, efficiency can be high but minimum power can be defined.

RE: Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

What you may want to check in the Grainger catalog is a belt driven fan with a blade of around 6' in diameter providing a free air delivery of your requirement. You can increase the fan RPM by changing the pulley sizes on the fan and motor by virtue of the affinity law but make sure that the increase in the starting amp does not exceed the electrical motor and the fuse specs.

Dear LittleInch,

Thank you for your response.

I am designing a cross flow heat ex-changer(HX) which transfer the heat from sodium to air, sodium on tube side and air on shell side. The heat removal capacity per HX is 20 MW. hence the air flow requirement is very high (80-110 m3/sec). But i don't have lots of space to install This kind of blower, so I am looking for a compact blower which can be accommodate in a 3m2(maximum) space.

RE: Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

Something like this? https://coolingtowerindia.com/air-cooled-heat-exch...



Also 3m2 is an area, not a volume.

I would suggest you contact some air cooled HX vendors myself.

RE: Compact Blower for a high flow rate and low static pressure application

Per OP "I want to choose a blower/fan..." There is a big difference between a blower and fan.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
