Horton has announced that its new WindMaster Revolution is a high-efficiency, hybrid-flow fan that meets the airflow demand of EPA2010, Euro VI and Tier 4 engines. “The WindMaster Revolution is a radical change from current technologies, combining only the best features of axial-, mixed- and radial-flow fan technology,” said Steve Wardleworth, vp operations/gm of the fan & shroud business unit.
“The WindMaster Revolution is optimized to move air more efficiently around the engine and through the under-hood compartment,” he continued. “The result is energy savings and the highest efficiency available, with the lowest operating noise¾vitally important in meeting emission regulation changes that require better cooling performance. Presently being tested in numerous vehicle and equipment models, we anticipate this will become the leading technology for new on- and off-highway applications.”
The fans are designed for compact engine compartments and are available in two sizes. The 550-millimeter fans are engineered for off-highway equipment and vehicles and medium-duty trucks. The 750-millimeter fans are engineered for heavy-duty trucks and some off-highway equipment and vehicles.
WindMaster Revolution fans have 20% greater airflow than axial-flow fans, significantly lower operating noise, greater efficiency and a similar-size inlet, according to Wardleworth. In addition, compared to radial-flow fans, the fans have 40% smaller depth and a larger inlet diameter, require a significantly smaller space and do not require space for complex fan housing. And compared to mixed-flow fans, the fans have more than 15%t greater airflow, 30% smaller depth, greater efficiency, and a larger hub section that provides for more fan drive mounting options, he added.
