Monitoring devices enable fans for machine to machine communications (M2M) and/or to collect data to be used for operational monitoring, maintenance planning, and failure analysis. nyb will continue to expand it's offering of industrial internet of things (IIoT) fan sensor systems.
Vaneaxial Adjustable Pitch Fans are expanded to larger sizes, in 66, 72, and 84" diameters.
Vaneaxial Fixed Pitch Fans are now available with new easy access design, making maintenance easier by allowing direct access to the shaft, bearings and v-belt drive. Clamshell construction ultilizes a single or double door (depending on size) to easily remove the wheel without removing the fan from the ducted system. Swingout construction permits the entire rotating assembly (wheel, shaft, bearing and drive) to swing out of the fan housing when the access door is open.
Vaneaxial Adjustable Pitch Fans are available with new hub ratios of 0.45 and 0.54. The new hub ratios are intended for applications requiring higher flows and lower pressures than the current 0.60 hub radio design. They are available in half solidity for additional performance flexibility.
Industrial Duct Fans are belt-driven, designed with short compact housing to accomodate tight installation requirements and includes an aerodynamic belt-well for high efficient operation. Three wheel designs include a one piece cast aluminum (OPC), a multiple piece cast aluminum (MPC) and a steel fabricated (STG) wheel design.
