What’s the difference between Sleeve Bearings and Ball Bearings

Two bearing systems are common in air moving products, sleeve bearings or ball bearings. There are several factors that make it important to consider your choice when making a selection for your application. Sleeve bearing fans are more economical; however, it is not recommended that they are mounted in any position other than horizontal. Temperature is another consideration; if the temperature exceeds 70°C the fan will become inoperable. The lifetime of a sleeve bearing fan is often shorter than that of a ball bearing fan, however, if ...


Cabinet Cooling For Outdoor Electrical Enclosures

Outdoor electrical enclosures can be found almost everywhere you go. Containing expensive equipment, these units are exposed to extreme weather conditions; from high ambient temperatures in Summer to a risk of condensation occurring as the temperatures drop in the Winter seasons. The effects of solar radiation are also evident given the hours that the enclosure is in the direct sunlight. Electrical equipment used within outdoor enclosures is generally very durable and robust, although not all can tolerate the extremes that the conditions of ...


Sound & Noise Within Industrial Fan Systems

In the world of HVAC the efficiency of industrial fan systems is often compromised by an ineffectively designed air movement system and poor efficiency. This is often accompanied by unwanted fan or air velocity noise making the whole system less than desirable. The annual UK industrial fan power consumption is estimated at well over 30TW-hours. If best practice was applied within the UK, CO2 emissions alone could be reduced by around 2 million tonnes per annum and electrical costs would also be reduced by a similarly shocking amount. Effici...
