The fine art of moving air

Without a doubt, refrigeration technology has been close to our hearts for four decades - after all, it has traditionally been a central focus of the range of services we provide. We have set worldwide standards in this area as the leading experts in moving air and with our external rotor motor: in quality, technology, innovation and, no less importantly, in the reliability of our products.

Our motors and fans have a wide range of applications in refrigeration systems. As the manufacturer of the real heart of a system - the fan unit - our customers demand nothing less from us than continuous progress and innovation.

In response, we have continuously set new standards, particularly in increasing the service life of ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration systems, reducing their energy consumption, developing absolutely low-noise fans, and taking advantage of all the possibilities of modern integrated electronics.

For example, the Atherton Supa IGA supermarket

The task
Atherton Supa IGA, which has 2,800 square meters of floor space, primarily sells regional seafood, meat and produce. His air-cooled condensers have their work cut out for them to keep the groceries fresh and the shoppers relaxed, as steady 35-degree temperatures and 90 percent humidity are perfectly normal during summers in Atherton.

Intelligent GreenTech EC technology provides for cool heads in the Post Tower.

The solution
In January 2017, a service provider replaced three of the six fans in his air-cooled condenser with brand new AxiBlades, which were not even on the market in Australia at the time. That took less than 30 minutes per unit. ebm-papst checked the input power for the three fans a week before and a week after the upgrade.

The result
The retrofit yields annual energy savings between 38 and 43 percent per fan.
