The ventilation industry is subject to frequent legislative changes, which can be a source of major frustration when it leads to product withdrawals. This was just one of several reasons behind the introduction of Elta Fans’ long-cased axial fan – the Revolution SLC EC.
Here are the top five features of the Revolution SLC EC:
The evolving nature of the ventilation industry means that products are frequently at risk of not being compliant, with manufacturers under constant pressure to deliver in-line with the latest legislative changes.
The Revolution SLC EC has been developed to ensure compliance with legislation likely in 2021, and should easily pass any regulations that are anticipated before 2030. In a sector that is vulnerable to sudden change, it provides an assurance of continuity for those tasked with delivering ventilation solutions.
2. Lower running costs
A defining feature of the new fan is the transition from an AC motor to a low energy EC motor. This has a number of benefits, not least the reduction in running costs associated with the unit.
Complete with high-quality impeller blades and an increased blade chord and twist, the Revolution SLC EC achieves running cost savings of up to 20%, helping to reduce overall energy consumption compared to previous models. It also makes ventilation management far easier for the end user, due to built-in control for setting fan speed during commissioning and operation.
3. Greener credentials
Aside from the lowering the running costs, the Revolution SLC EC also significantly reduces CO2 emissions. This is particularly important with the current trend towards improving the environmental impact of buildings, putting pressure on contractors and facilities managers to deliver effective products. The efficiency of the new fan is ideal for decreasing energy consumption and ensuring compliance with the latest ecodesign regulations.
The range of applications that it can be used in marks the Revolution SLC EC as a versatile ventilation option. It’s designed to operate in a wide range of locations, including sports centres, warehousing and stores, factories, and commercial kitchens.
It’s also available in a range of sizes, from 315mm to 630mm, ensuring that the benefits of the long-cased axial fan can be enjoyed in a wide range of applications.
5. Easy installation
The host of benefits associated with the Revolution SLC EC are underpinned by the straightforward installation and maintenance processes. A fitted IP55 terminal box allows the fan to be positioned conveniently to incoming electrical inputs, and the complicated task of having to install a commissioning device is removed because it’s located within the fan itself.
Contractors are able to pass on these savings to their customers, and in an industry fraught with uncertainty, the innovative Revolution SLC EC provides peace of mind for those tasked with delivering ventilation strategies.
