Ductless Ventilation In Fume Cupboards

Science laboratories within educational establishments such as universities and schools  should be committed to ensuring that the users of ductless and ducted fume cupboards handling hazardous substances, are suitably protected from the inherent hazards associated with procedures undertaken as part of their duties. These units also have a duty to reduce both their carbon emissions and reduce overall energy consumption. This works alongside the Governments targets to reduce overall consumption and to improve energy efficiency initiatives. The ...


Better Fan Efficiency – The New Ecofit V8 Motor

Axair Fans are excited to introduce the latest addition to our EC Technology product range. The high power EC motor known in the industry as the “V8 motor” is a new external rotor motor with input power up to 300Watts manufactured by our innovative and reputable supplier partner Ecofit. For our existing customers, the V8 motor replaces the L4 motor, with the advantage of higher power at lower speed enabling a better overall efficiency. Previously the external rotor motor collection consisted of the G9 with input power to 150Watts, and L4 mo...


HVAC Fan Failure Monitoring

A method of detecting fan failure within fan coil units in heating and ventilation. The undetected failure of fan coil units is a long standing problem in heating and ventilation. Fan coil units like the types found in H&V applications tend to be unmonitored and system fan failure can often go unnoticed to the point where a refit or refurbishment is required or where air simply ceases to flow from the ductwork. The oldest format for monitoring the FCU is to use differential pressure switches. Within the fan coil unit, the installer would ...


FLL Series LED Enclosure Lights

  Usually when we discuss enclosures we highlight the importance of effective heat dissipation and thermal management to prevent the premature failure of equipment housed within the cabinet. This usually means using a fan filter unit or associated thermostats or anti condensation heaters respectively, but Axair Fans are excited to launch a brand new set of accessories to our portfolio - our LED Enclosure Lights. All enclosures or electrical cabinets require regular maintenance and it's common for these units to be tucked away in a co...

Thermoelectric Coolers & Understanding The Peltier Effect

What are Thermoelectric Coolers? (TEC) A thermoelectric cooler is a device used for the transfer of heat that achieves the same results as traditional compressor systems without the use of a gas or moving component.... if you exclude the fan. Quite simply, thermoelectric coolers are simply small static heat pumps to transfer heat which operate according to the Peltier Effect. These thermoelectric coolers present a cost effective solution for cooling electronic equipment housed in small enclosures that provide reliable performance with the CFC'...

Woodchip Drying Using High Capacity Axial Fans

Biomass: The drier the wood chip, the more energy produced Over the last 12 months Axair has handled a large amount of Biomass fan enquiries. For those unsure of the term, Biomass predominately focuses on sustainable sources of energy found in wood chip, pellets and dried logs as opposed to using non renewable forms of energy found in fossil fuels such as coal and oil.  The simplest way of using many forms of Biomass for energy is simply by burning it. Recently, Axair has provided several long cased axial fans to facilitate the drying of t...
