It originates within the motorised impeller unit and cannot be entirely eliminated until new technology invents an induction motor that is free of electromagnetic vibration and an impeller that is perfectly balanced. Ecofit believe they have gone a long way towards solving the problem by introducing double inlet centrifugal fans that incorporate anti-vibration mountings between the fixed shaft and the scroll mounting arms. The fans, prefixed ‘GDS’, therefore achiev...
