Design Variables of Centrifugal Fans

The principal action of an axial-flow fan in

producing pressure is to impart a tangential

l ti t th i it th h acceleration to the air as it passes through

the impeller of the fan.

Any centrifugal force generated is small and

practically negligible when the fan operates

at rated conditions.

The rotative energy must be converted into

linear-flow energy and static head as the air

leaves the impeller.

Lec17_3

Theory and Design of Axial-Flow Fans

The total head imparted to the air by an axial-flow

fan, theoretically, can be found from the following

equation: equation:

Example 1

Given an axial-flow fan operating under the

following conditions:

Hs = 3.84 in. (956 Pa)

D = 6 ft (1.83 m)

Q = 140,000 cfm (66.07 m3/s)

n = 1750 rpm

Pm = 140 bhp (104.4 kW)

g = 0 075 lb/ft3 (1 20 kg/m3) g = 0.075 lb/ft3 (1.20 kg/m3)

Fan Laws

The behavior of a fan under changing head-

quantity conditions is predictable from its

characteristic curves.

However, there are certain variables other

than the flow and resistance of the system

that exert a considerable effect on fan

performance p

as measured by fan head, quantity, power,

and efficiency
