Some people think that providing good food and clean water is all that’s needed to grow healthy livestock, when actually proper ventilation plays just as vital a role. So, VAL-CO has stepped up to help achieve the ideal environment with the introduction of the versatile, highly efficient, variable speed V-Fan.
Older-style Triac-induced variable speed fans would get less efficient the slower they ran due to regulating the voltage, thereby making the CFM/Watt (or (m3/hour)/W) worse. The V-Fan motor is not only VFD-driven, meaning the frequency (hertz) to the motor is driven, but it’s also a PMAC motor, yielding greater efficiency than induction VFD-driven motors. The V-Fan delivers up to 35,000 CFM at top speeds and provides up to 56.4 CFM/Watt at low speeds, which is where this fan really shines!
The V-Fan is direct drive, meaning there are no belts to maintain or bearings to grease. The VFD is located directly on the fan and pre-tuned at the factory, so no adjustments are needed, and is IP66 rated to withstand the environments of agricultural production houses. “I think this fan is going to really help save energy in a lot of houses, as well as potentially eliminate the need for smaller size fans for minimum ventilation.” – Sean F. – Director of Customer Support
