Technical Manager | ebm-papst UK Ltd
My background is in Mechanical & Production Engineering however working for ebm-papst that has expanded into electro-mechanical, some electronic and acoustic engineering. When it comes to acquiring and passing on knowledge, I try to keep it as simple and as least painful as possible. I am happy to receive feedback and if there are any questions that arise from anything that gets published. If I don't know the answer to your question immediately, I am sure that I know someone that can help.
Max Rheiner is making the dream of flight a virtual reality. In this interview, the head of the master’s degree program for design interaction at the Zurich University of the Arts explains how it’s done and why moving air plays an essential role...

For sensible heat loads, using the local ambient air with some provisions for moisture and particulate protection, can provide adequate all year round free cooling without the extra power requirements a mechanical cooling system
To meet the need to reduce energy consumption variable speed drives are used to match supply with demand. Frequency Inverters can achieve this however size restraints, high power density and efficiency losses mean that forced cooling is required.
Tangential fans are also known as cross-flow fans. Used extensively in the past for electronic cooling, they are now mainly used for applications that require a wide curtain of air. Find out how they work and where they can be used...

When an axial fan does not produce enough puff to overcome the resistance to flow and a backward curved fan does not deliver the volume flow required, a mixed flow / diagonal fan can provide a quiet and efficient solution.

‘All newly developed ebm-papst products must be technologically and economically superior to its predecessor.’ This is the heart of the philosophy which is ebm-papst Greentech. Read how the ESM can save energy and improve system efficiency
Variable speed control can save energy, reduce noise and extend lifetime of fans. Building on the range of fan controllers, ebm-papst has enhanced the capability of their closed loop controllers making them user multi functional and user configurable
When high pressures at relatively low volume flow, or high flow rates are needed when space is at a premium, a forward curved centrifugal fan can be the right choice. Used in a scroll housing, forward curved impellers provide an effective solution.
Inspired by Pink Floyd’s ‘Animals’ album from 1977, Architecture Social Club have created a visual experience turning an Album Cover into an animated sculpture. ebm-papst teamed up with the artists to provide technical expertise along the way.

When the application requires airflow through a system but needs to overcome a higher resistance to flow, a centrifugal fan may be an appropriate selection. This article discusses the application of a fan type with the highest efficiency of all fans.
It is important to select a fan on or near the point of peak efficiency to minimise the power consumption and noise emitted from the fan. This article discusses when an axial fan would be an appropriate selection
