F-Gas Regu­la­tion: Fans meet the chal­lenge

According to the so-called F-Gas Regu­la­tion, emis­sions of fluo­ri­nated green­house gases (F-gases) in the EU are to be signif­i­cantly reduced by 2030. It is there­fore essen­tial to switch to natural refrig­er­ants with a low global warming poten­tial (GWP). However, these are often flam­mable. This means that all compo­nents installed in heat pumps, for example, must meet the stan­dards for flam­mable refrig­er­ants. This also applies to the fans used, but these also need to be as quiet and energy-effi­cient as possible.»

The right solu­tion for every instal­la­tion situ­a­tion

Fans are complex flow machines, which some­times respond to aero­dy­namic changes in their surround­ings. The instal­la­tion situ­a­tion plays an impor­tant role here. This means that, when installed in the appli­ca­tion, the fan is often not as quiet as hoped for, or less effi­cient than promised in the data sheet. Last but not least, we recom­mend having the fan manu­fac­turer on board at an early stage of in-house unit devel­op­ment. This means there will certainly be no unpleasant surprises later.»
