Exhaust Fans VL 50

Exhaust Fan VL 50 (V-line)

VL 50VL50 is the ideal exhaust fan offering a cost effective solution to high airflow demand and high quality material. The propeller has a simple design including self-cleaning functions and high efficiency characteristics, all of which are features of the new V-line product segment.

The square fan housing and air conveyor (venturi) are made of a strong galvanised sheet-steel. The 6-blade propeller is statically and dynamically balanced. The propeller is available in stainless steel and galvanised steel.

To improve aerodynamic efficiency, the fan has been developed in Munters Euroemme’s R&D lab. The test chamber has been built according to ANSI / AMCA 210-85 Figure 15 specifications. Construction details and air tightness have been verified by personnel of the BESS Lab at the Agricultural Engineering Department, University of Illinois – USA.

Propeller and Shutter

principle ot the climateAttached to the propeller is a large v-belt pulley in which is embedded a ball bearing, fully protected against water. The belt transmission ensures low propeller rpm, which in its turn entails high efficiency and low energy consumption as well as low noise. The shutter is made of pressed galvanised steel for all models, which is stronger than aluminium and plastic.

The fan shutter is tightly closed when the fan is not in peration, preventing any air leakage through the fan. The patented centrifugal system hinders the shutter from being closed by air pressure, keeping the efficiency of the fan at peak performance at all times by maintaining the shutter fully and firmly opened. Opening of the shutter is made by rotating weights placed over the centrifugal system arms.

Closing of the shutters is provided for by powerful springs, when the fan is not operating. The shutter does not have to be cleaned regularly as dust does not affect its opening and closing movement. All the plastic parts are made of gray acetalic plastic.
