ebm‑papst will be presenting its latest solutions at InnoTrans (September 20-23, 2022, Berlin), focusing on railway technology and IAA Transportation (September 20-25, 2022, Hanover), focusing on commercial vehicles.
The new AxiEco Track axial fan will be presented at InnoTrans in Berlin for the first time. The AxiEco series has been successfully establishing itself on the market for over two years. The product range's new fan was specially developed in view of the requirements of railway technology. In the AxiEco Track, the impeller, integrated diffusor ring and hub form a compact unit. The blade tips pass directly into the integrated diffusor ring, which has eliminated the tip gap. This increases the efficiency and, at the same time, generates less noise.
Reliability, robustness, fire protection and electromagnetic compatibility are key requirements, particularly in railway technology. The AxiEco Track with plug-and-play capability is available in sizes 300, 400, 450 and 500 mm and, thanks to its high static pressure increase, covers all typical applications. The size 500 features automatic resonance detection, i.e. critical speed ranges are detected automatically and "blended out". As a result, and due to its compact, robust design, it is resistant to vibrations and shocks, ensuring long operational reliability.
Another new product awaits visitors at the IAA Transportation: the new W3G-180 fan was developed for applications such as stationary air conditioning for buses and trucks. This fan has bionic blade tips, known as "serrations", which minimizes tonal proportions of noise, leading to significant noise reduction. With a diameter of 180 mm to a maximum height of 45.5 mm, the powerful fan ensures a pleasant climate and low noise characteristics in the driver's cabs even in a small space. The fan comes with intervention protection already integrated and is made of glass-fiber reinforced composite material, which ensures a high mechanical stability. As the front of a truck is exposed to changing and adverse ambient conditions, the electronics are sealed in accordance with the IP degree of protection IP6k9k.
