MOTOR FAN GE ECM AXIAL
Axial fans are commonly found in various kinds of foodservice equipment. Named for the direction of the airflow they create, blades rotating around an axis draw air in parallel to that axis and force air out in the same direction. They create a large volume of low pressure airflow and require onlya low power input for operation.
Compact axial fans are equipment-cooling fans with blades that circulate air to regulate temperatures in machinery and equipment enclosures. They can either push hot air out of an enclosure or pull cooler outside air into the enclosure. These fans have a motor that rotates the fan blades to create airflow and a housing that can mount into existing componentry.
Fans are used across a wide variety of restaurant equipment to create airflow and dissipate heat. A fan consists of a rotating arrangement of vanes or blades which act upon the air. The rotating assembly of blades and hub is known as an impeller, rotor, or runner. Usually, it is contained within some form of housing or case. This may direct the airflow or increase safety by preventing objects from contacting the fan blades.
Motors are used in all kinds of restaurant equipment to power beaters, blenders, slicers, basket lifts, filters, fans and much more. A motor converts one form of energy into mechanical energy. Electric motors convert electrical energy into mechanical motion, pneumatic motors use compressed air. A motor is a device driven by electricity, air, or hydraulic pressure, which does not change the chemical composition of its energy source.
Electric motors may be classified by considerations such as power source type, internal construction, application and type of motion output. In addition to AC versus DC types, motors may be brushed or brushless, may be of various phase (see single-phase, two-phase, or three-phase), and may be either air-cooled or liquid-cooled. General-purpose motor designs with standard dimensions and characteristics provide convenient mechanical power for foodservice equipment once customized to the exact OEM specifications (RPM, torque, magnet dimension, winding, etc.).
