Noise emission and energy efficiency are key aspects for axial fans used in the evaporators, condensers and heat exchangers in ventilation, refrigeration and air conditioning systems – in addition to the required air flow. With AxiBlade, ebm-papst has launched an innovative fan system that is unique in the sector in this form. The components – the impeller, motor, housing and control electronics – were harmonized with each other down to the smallest details. And in comparison to the predecessor model, the aerodynamics has been perfected. Thanks to their modular concept, AxiBlade axial fans operate with an optimum efficiency of up to 54 percent. The new fans also feature a noise reduction of up to 8 dB(A) compared to the standard product range.

Thomas Borst, Managing Director Sales and Marketing ebm-papst Group, is pleased about the tremendous customer feedback: "We are very satisfied with the results of Chillventa 2016. Our new AxiBlade axial fan has generated plenty of positive response. "It is the entire sector’s new benchmark." On an exhibition area greater than 700 m², ebm-papst showed many other recent developments in its fan and system lines. The company's stand design is ultra modern: it uses large touchscreens to clearly explain the product benefits.

"In recent years, Chillventa has become more and more significant – as shown by the growing number of visitors. And the fact that many visitors come from overseas and Asia shows that Chillventa is also more international now," added Borst. This is another reason why ebm-papst will increase its commitment to Chillventa in the future. The company now chairs the trade show’s advisory committee, which represents the interests of the exhibitors.
