Working of EC Backward Curved Centrifugal Fans

As mentioned earlier, the fan is designed with a rotating impeller with backward curved blades that are curved in the opposite direction of the rotation. The impeller is driven by an external motor that is equipped with an electronically commutated (EC) motor control system, renowned for their energy efficiency and precise control.  

When switching on the fan, the motor rotates the fan wheel, and the backward curved blades draw air in a direction parallel to the axis of rotation. The air is then forced outward to the discharge side of the fan owing to the centrifugal force generated by the rotation of the impeller. This leads to a high-pressure zone near the centre of the impeller, where the air is compressed. The compressed air is then expelled through the outlet of the fan. This design efficaciously handles both clean and slightly contaminated air. Overall, this operation mechanism enables the fan to produce a high-pressure airflow suitable for various demanding applications.

Advantages of EC Backward Curved Centrifugal Fans

Our range of backward inclined centrifugal fans are widely chosen across industries due to their several advantages as listed below:

Factors to Consider When Selecting Backward Curved Ventilation Fans

When selecting an EC backward curved fan, there are several important factors to consider. Choosing the right fan for your specific needs is critical to ensure the expected level of performance and energy efficiency. A few factors to keep in mind include:

  • Airflow Requirements: Understand the volume of air that needs to be moved, the desired static pressure along with other airflow requirements for your application before selecting a model. Having a clear understanding on these will help you choose a fan with the appropriate size and power.
  • Noise Levels: Understand the level of noise levels that the unit generates. Invest on EC backward curved fan models that have sound-rated designs or noise reduction features. This is extremely important when adding these units to residential or office spaces, where a high level of noise can be a significant concern.
  • Efficiency: As discussed earlier, these fans are widely known for their energy efficiency. Having said this, ensure to invest on models that have high-efficiency motors and low power consumption. This will help you save on energy costs along with minimizing environmental impact.
  • Size and Mounting Options: Check the space available for installing EC backward curved centrifugal fans. These fans come in different sizes and mounting configurations; hence it is important to choose a fan that fits within the available space.
  • Fan Control Options: Invest on a model that offers various control options, which allows for better customization and adaptability to different operating conditions. Various control options can range from speed control, on/off control, to integration with building automation systems, among others.


How to Maintain EC Backward Centrifugal Fans

Proper maintenance is a key to ensure the optimal performance and longevity of your EC backward curved centrifugal fan. How to make them functioning smoothly for long years? Follow the maintenance practice mention below:

  • Regular Cleaning: It is common that dust and debris can accumulate on the blades and impeller of the centrifugal fan over years, reducing its efficiency. Hence, it is mandatory to plan periodic cleaning with a soft brush. You may also utilize compressed to prevent clogging and ensure smooth airflow.
  • Lubrication: To maintain smooth operation, the motor bearings of the fan demand appropriate lubrication on a timely basis.
  • Inspection: Ensure to inspect the fan housing, motor, and electrical connections regularly for any signs of wear or damage. Check for loose screws, frayed wires, or rust, and address any issues promptly to prevent further damage.
  • Filter Replacement: If your model is equipped with filters, ensure to inspect and replace them on a timely basis. Cleaned filters ensure improved air quality and prevent debris accumulation in the fan.
  • Balancing: If you notice unusual noise or any vibrations coming from backward inclined centrifugal fans, it may be unbalanced. You can use a balancer or consult a professional to balance the fan blades in such cases.
