Colchester-based Fläkt Woods has introduced an axial fan to its ventilation and smoke extraction range.
The JMv is aimed at the catering and hospitality market, with the company claiming that the fan can save 24% in running costs compared to competitor products, as well as reducing CO2 emissions.
The new product utilises Fläkt Woods’ Vortex Creation Control technology, which features a CFD optimised aerodynamic impeller design. Integral to the design are vortex generators on the trailing edge of the impeller blades, which are said to intelligently manage airflow and reduce turbulence to deliver optimum aerodynamic performance.
The fan design also features two-stage guide vanes that are claimed to boost efficiency further, whilst also providing support for the motor and reducing unnecessary weight.
Andy Cardy, operational marketing manager for Fläkt Wood’s fans division, explains: “JMv is actually our first ‘all new’ axial flow fan product for 22 years, so this is an exciting time in our company history. JMv is a huge step forward in fan technology that will allow us to build on the existing JM fans’ success that has, for many years, been a market leading product.
“JMv also addresses key needs of modern installers, who are faced with a rapidly changing legislative environment, the impact of rising energy bills and increasingly stringent building regulations.
“This new range is already ErP 2015 compliant, and in many cases, far exceeds current efficiency targets – so customers can rest assured that any Fläkt Woods product will meet future legislation requirements for years to come.”
