German Design Award for fan

Energy-saving fan for evap­o­ra­tors receives Special Mention


At the German Design Award 2016 the energy-saving fan for evap­o­ra­tors by ebm-papst has been given a “Special Mention” award in the “Energy” cate­gory. This award is given to prod­ucts with a design that has espe­cially successful aspects or solu­tions. The jury praised the fan’s outstanding design quality. “A highly-func­tional, clev­erly designed product. Its strengths are a high degree of effec­tive­ness, a partic­u­larly high level of reli­a­bility, and a long lifespan,”

Gunter Streng, Head of Devel­op­ment A at ebm-papst Mulfingen, received the award on February 12 in Frank­furt.

The energy-saving fan developed specifically for evaporator applications.

The energy-saving fan devel­oped specif­i­cally for evap­o­rator appli­ca­tions.

“We are thrilled with the award, because not only does the fan consume 30 per cent less energy, it also saves about 50 per cent in mate­rial in the manu­fac­turing process. We already made this a top priority in the design.”

The energy-saving fan was designed as a complete unit. This reduces the amount of steel and copper used by half, compared to conven­tional solu­tions with internal rotor motors.

The German Design Award, initi­ated in 2012, is one of the most widely acclaimed design compe­ti­tions in the world that today enjoys an excel­lent repu­ta­tion well beyond the circle of experts. 3,400 submis­sions were presented to the Jury in 2016. Gold, Winner, and Special Mention awards are given in each of the compe­ti­tion cate­gories.
