Design and Development
Using a combination of NASA research into wing
performance and winglets, coupled with a study of bird flight has enabled the development of the best available Sickle blade profile. Matching this to a purpose designed close fitting casing ensures best use of this blade technology thereby reducing noise and improving the performance in cased axial fans.
The Sabre® Sickle Short Case fan range share the same case lengths as the Euroseries Cased axial range making them fully interchangeable and compatible with the full range of Vent-Axia Accessories. The strong and compact short case is constructed from rolled steel plate and protected with a tough, epoxy paint finish. Casing dimensions are to DIN 24151 and flange dimensions are to ISO 6580.
Manufacture is controlled to BS EN ISO 9001. The compact motor/impeller unit is robustly supported within the casing by electro welded and epoxy coated steel rod mounting supports for ease of installation and service access. Suitable for all outdoor weather environments.
The motors and impellers are factory matched, statically and dynamically balanced to ISO 1940, part 1Quality Class G.6.3.
The impellers incorporate the latest in Sickle blade aerofoil technology to ensure minimum sound and maximum performance. Impellers up to 400mm diameter are moulded from a composite polymer, impellers above this size are Aluminium. The motors and impellers are factory matched, statically and dynamically balanced to ISO 1940 part 1, Quality Class G.6.3.
The external rotor motors are specifically designed and styled for this range of fan. Ball bearings are greased for life. Sizes 315 - 710 are protected to IP54, against dust and moisture complying with BS EN 60529.
They have ribbed aluminium body castings for efficient cooling with Motor insulation to Class 'F' (from -40°C to + 70°C). Speed controlled sizes 450 to 710 6 & 8 pole motors are only suitable for operating temperatures of up to 40'C.
The Sabre® Sickle Short Case fan range is available for either single phase 220-240V 50 Hz capacitor start and run or three phase 380-415V 50Hz. Motors are fitted with Thermal Overload Protection which should be wired into all controller circuits and into starter contactors to prevent motor damage due to overloading / overheating.
Units are suitable for speed control by either electronic, voltage reduction or frequency inverters where permissible. For optimum efficiency and controllability Vent-Axia recommend the use of the eDemand Inverter Controller to give close control via sensors or manual control.
Forms of Running
Cased mounted fans (ex-stock) are supplied for extract use (Form 'B' running).
The fan performance, is in accordance with tests to ISO 5801.
Fan sound levels, measured in a reverberant chamber in accordance with ISO 3744 Part 1. Published dB(A) figures are free field sound pressure levels at 3m with spherical propagation at a reference level of 2 x 10-5Pa (20 micro-Pascal). The sound power level spectra figures are dB with a reference level of 10-12 Watts (1 pico-watt).
To ensure minimum noise levels during speed control, either an auto transformer or eDemand inverter speed control is recommended.
A full range of accessories is available with the Sabre® Sickle Short Case fans:
- Electronic Speed Controllers
- Auto Transformer Speed Controllers
- eDemand Inverter Speed Control
