Energy Efficiency Focus For New Fans
|New fans specifically designed to meet the requirements of the energy and climate change legislation being introduced throughout Europe in only a matter of months are now available in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Dublin based Fantech Ventilation is part of the international Elta Group of companies and supplies the Elta range of products in Ireland from their new, extended, premises on Airton Business Park, Tallaght.
Many additions have been made to the fans available, notably those developed to meet the Energy related Products (ErP) Directive which will implement mandatory fan efficiency legislation from 1st January 2013, with more onerous requirements to follow in January 2015.
The new products include the first ever fan in the HVAC market sector to feature the Ziehl FE2owlet impeller following the establishment of an alliance between Elta Fans and Ziehl-Abegg. This was a significant move made to ensure that Elta Fans new products comply with the requirements of the new European legislation.
Commenting on the new legislation Fantech’s Managing Director, Brendan O'Toole, said: "This legislation is fundamental to the HVAC industry and will affect all those who work in it. The focus on energy efficiency is not going away and specifiers, end users and installers of fans need to be aware of its impact. We realise there is still a need to educate the market in understanding its implications. That is why we have developed a CIBSE approved CPD seminar, dedicated specifically to the subject. As a group of companies we have also invested heavily in promoting awareness, including the production of a free guide - 'How fans are affected by the ErP Directive' - designed to demystify the legislation and spell out the major issues. We are well aware that we have to respond to the legislation as responsible and forward thinking fan manufacturers and have been developing strategic alliances and undertaking extensive research and development into how we can ensure we meet all the requirements. These new products are the result of that initiative."
The launch of the first Elta products to be powered by Ziehl technology includes the Raptor range. Available as a plate fan, cased axial fan, or plate mounted ATEX fan, the Raptor was the first fan in the HVAC market to feature the Ziehl FE2owlet impeller. The research department at Künzelsau based Ziehl-Abegg drew from nature in developing the all new Owlet, recognising the owl as a bird renowned for its silence in flight. By borrowing scientific insights into the owl’s flight characteristics and combining it with the company’s extensive aero-acoustics knowledge, Ziehl have produced a completely new blade geometry which excels in terms of low noise emission, reliability and high efficiency. To reduce noise, the blade has been designed with serrations on the trailing edge of the wing, like the owl, which serves to muffle the sound of the owl’s wing beats. Improved efficiency and performance is achieved through winglets on each blade, used on aircraft to smooth airflow near the wing tip to reduce the lift-induced drag caused by wing tip vortices.
