Aerotech Vortex Fans Aerotech Vortex®Fans 26″, 51″, 55″ Vortex fan line The Vortex® fan line utilizes a number of features which maximize its performance. This fan isbuilt from inside-out to provide maximum performance and efficiency. The 3-blade cast aluminum airfoil propeller gives the Vortex fans higher airflow. Many parts of this fan work together to increase the efficiency standards. The streamlined fiberglass housing and fiberglass Rifled™ discharge cone make it stand out. State-of-art shutter design usingcounter-weighted airfoil blades, intake channel and weather-tight seals. The inside of the fan continues Aerotech’s high standards with the aircraft design drive support for minimum airflow resistance and increased efficiency. The 51″ and 55″ fans feature high quality pillow block bearings and include advanced drive system and high quality belt tensioner with stainless steel hardware and fasteners for long life. The 26″ Vortex takes the same technology fromthe 51″ and 55″ and transforms it to a direct drive variable speed fan. The Vortex fan line is available in single phase, 3 phase and 2 speed, with 50 hertz motors available for most models. Contact your Aerotech Representative or the Aerotech office for moreinformation.

Notes: 1. The ratings shown are based on tests and procedures performed at the BESS Lab, University of Illinois in accordance with ASHRAE Standard 51-1999. 2. BHP values were not measured at the BESS Lab. The BHP values shown were derived from actual Watt measurements using motor efficiency values supplied by the motor manufacturers.
