Advantages of Fan Array Technology (March 28, 2017)

March Meeting

Join us on March 28th with Doyle Freeman for a meeting on Advantages of Fan Array Technology

Building owners pay for CFM, static pressure and sound level at their air handling unit discharge. Fan Arrays are designed around a philosophy of eliminating or neutralizing trade-offs from traditional fan systems. In the “Advantages of Fan Array Technology” presentation, we’ll review how owners are reaping the rewards of choosing fan arrays, and discuss the following specific topics:

  • Why Fan Arrays, and what are the real benefits over standard fans in air handling?
  • Analysis of first cost versus operating cost considerations.
  • How has Fan Array technology changed over the years, and what makes one manufacturer different from another?
  • Comparison of EC motors versus AC Induction.
  • What are the various Fan Array control possibilities?
  • What is, and what is not a patent violation in the Fan Array world?
  • Sample projects and successes

Fan Arrays have changed the HVAC world by creating built-in redundancy, energy savings, and quieter operation of air handling units.  They are the only choice for mission-critical applications, and are now very common in K-12, University, Healthcare, and commercial building applications due to their inherent advantages over traditional fan systems.  This one-hour PDH presentation will allow attendees to apply new and increased knowledge of Fan Array systems in HVAC design, and create lasting value for building owners throughout the industry.
