Elta Fans has announced the first in a series of new products powered by motors and impellers from Ziehl-Abegg, including the first ever fan in the HVAC market sector to feature the Ziehl FE2 Owlet impeller.
The new alliance between Elta and Ziehl-Abegg was a significant move made to ensure that new products from Elta Fans comply with the requirements of the new European legislation regarding energy efficiency.
The first tier of the Energy related Products (ErP) Directive will implement mandatory fan efficiency legislation from 1 January 2013 but Elta has taken a pre-emptive stance which will ensure their product range is in advance of the legislative deadlines.
The launch of the first Elta products to be powered by Ziehl technology includes the Raptor range. Available as a plate fan, cased axial fan, or plate mounted ATEX fan, the Raptor is the only fan to feature the Ziehl FE2 Owlet impeller. By borrowing scientific insight into the owl’s flight characteristics and combining it with the company’s extensive aero-acoustics knowledge, Ziehl has produced a completely new blade geometry which excels in terms of low noise emission, reliability and high efficiency.
