Our Philosophy

Duty point specific fan design

  • Aerodynamic duty point (CFD – Computational Fluid Dynamics)
  • Structural integrity (FEA – Finite Element Analysis)
  • Targeted dynamic (vibrational) response (FEA Modal Analysis)
  • Fan aerodynamic and structural characteristics verified by independent third party evaluation

Key features

  • No catalogues – each design unique to specific application/system
  • High aerodynamic efficiencies combined with maximum protection against the effect of wind
  • Blade configuration based on aviation industry principles
  • High structural safety factor to guard against failure and fatigue
  • Dynamic tuning to avoid dangerous resonance effects
  • Reduction in blade and hub weight to reduce drive train stress
  • Unique indexing system for accurate and fast blade angle setting/changes

State of the art production

  • High quality resins not subject to the effects of aging
  • CNC cutting of all fiber components
  • Resin infusion process to ensure accuracy and repeatability
  • Blade weight differences < 0.8%
  • Blade mass distribution differences < 0.6%

Scientists dream about doing great things. Engineers do them. – James A. Michener
