High-Efficiency Engine Cooling Fans
Horton has announced a new high-efficiency blade design for its WindShift fans. The WindShift WSE fan has been computer-optimized to provide a combination of increased airflow and reduced operating noise, the company said. With a swept-blade design, the WSE generates greater static pressure at slower speeds and is particularly suitable for agricultural, construction, industrial and power generation equipment equipped with EPA Tier 4 and EU Stage 4 diesel engines, the company said.
The WindShift WSE modular fan is available in diameters of 24 to 41 in. (610 to 1040 mm) and 2.44 to 5.94 in. (62 to 151 mm) pitch widths. The blades incorporate UV-stabilized materials that Horton said contains higher glass content than many conventional designs and provides greater strength and durability through a wider scope of temperatures and operating conditions. The fans are constructed with clamshell knuckles that clamp each blade to a 0.25 in. (6 mm) steel center disk. This allows blades to be set to a specific pitch angle for increased airflow, the company said.Edit Module
