Fan Law 1: CFM varies directly with RPM R.P.M. C.F.M.

Fan Law 1 says that air volume (CFM) varies directly with rotational speed of the fan in RPM 388 10,000

(revolutions per minute): 582 15,000

776 20,000

CFM2 RPM2

= 970 25,000

1164 30,000

CFM1 = original CFM RPM1 = original RPM 1358 35,000

Fig. 14: CFM varies directly

RPM2 = new RPM CFM2 = new CFM with RPM

Fan Law 1 means that if the RPM of a fan is increased, the CFM increases by the same

percentage. Figure 14 shows the relationships in Fan Law 1. If the CFM is increased 50%

(from 10,000 to 15,000) the RPM increases 50% (from 388 to 582).

Sheet metal workers often use Fan Law 1 because it predicts RPM or CFM when fan

changes are made. For example, the CFM produced by a fan needs to be raised from 25,000

to 30,000. The current RPM is 970. What RPM should he used to produce the 30,000 CFM

needed?

CFM2 RPM2

=

CFM1 RPM1

RPM2 30,000

=

970 25,000 Therefore to obtain 30,000 CFM, the fan speed must be

increased to 1165 RPM.

RPM2 x 25,000 = 970 x 30,000

25,000

RPM2 = 1164 (Round to 1165)

In the same way, the new CFM can be predicted if the RPM is changed to a specific

amount. For example, a fan is producing 21,420 CFM at 801 RPM. If the RPM is changed

to 700 RPM, what CFM will be produced by the Fan?

1. A fan is delivering 3,750 CFM @ 945 RPM. If the speed is increased to 1,175 RPM, how

many CFM will be delivered?

how many CFM will be delivered?

CFM2 1250

4. A fan is delivering 7,500 CFM at 886 RPM. If 10,000 CFM is required,

what will be the new RPM?

Fan Law 2: SP varies as a square of RPM

Fan Law 2 is used to determine the static pressure a fan will produce after

the fan RPM is changed. Fan Law 2 says that static pressure (SP) varies

directly as a square of the rotational speed of the fan (RPM):

2

SP2 RPM2

SP1 RPM1

changed from 500 RPM to 550 RPM. What will the new static pressure be?

2 2

SP2 550 SP2 = 0.5 x 550 SP2 = 0.605”

0.5 500 500

Fan law 2 says that the SP ratio is the square root of the RPM ratio. You can

demonstrate this with the answer to the problem above. The SP ratio is 1.21:

0.605 1.21

0.5

550 1.1

500

2

1.1 = 1.21

Because a change in RPM is directly related to a change in CFM (Fan Law 1),

the following variation of fan law 2 can be used:

2

SP2 CFM2

SP1 CFM1

A fan is delivering 7,534 CFM @ 886 RPM @ 1.2 SP. If 10,000 CFM is

required, what will be the new RPM? And what will be the new SP?

Fan Law # 3 Bhp varies as the cube of the RPM

• Fan law 3 is used to find the new Bhp (brake horespower) needed if the RPM is

changed, or it can find the RPM if the Bhp is changed. Fan Law 3 says that brake

horsepower (Bhp) varies as the cube of the rotaitional speed of the fan (RPM):

3

Bhp2 RPM2

Bhp1 RPM1

For example, a fan motor is drawing 0.84 Bhp and is producing 7650 CFM at 360

RPM. The speed is increased to 396 RPM. What is the new Bhp?

Bhp2 RPM2

Bhp1 RPM1

3

360

Bhp2 = 1.118

• Fan Law # 3 says that the Bhp ratio is the cube root of the RPM ratio. You can

demonstrate this with the answer to the problem above. The Bhp ratio is 1.331

1.118 = 1.331

0.84

396 = 1.1

360

The Bhp ratio 1.331 is the cube root of the RPM ratio 1.1:

1.1 = 1.331

1. A system is operating under the following conditions: 7,255 CFM, 575 RPM, 1.36”

SP, 7.75 Bhp. If the system required 9,250 CFM, what would be the new values

for RPM, SP, Bhp?

2. A system is operating under the following conditions: 12,735 CFM, 976 RPM, 1.55”

SP, 12.35 Bhp. If a 15 hp motor is installed, what are the maximum CFM,

RPM,SP that can be obtained?

A system is operating under the following conditions: 7,255

CFM, 575 RPM, 1.36” SP, 7.75 Bhp. If the system required

9,250 CFM, what would be the new values for RPM, SP, Bhp?
