Ideally suited for circulating air in Industrial and Commercial Applications.
Canarm’s “CP” Fans help save energy year round.
In winter, ceiling fans are used to destratify hot air otherwise trapped at ceiling level (Hot air is moved back to floor level where it keeps employees warm and comfortable). This can result in savings of up to 30% on heating costs.
In summer, Ceiling Fans run at higher speeds creating an evaporative cooling effect, keeping employees cool, and productivity higher.
Ceiling fan choice and layout is based on ceiling height and the floor area of the building. As the height of the ceiling increases, larger and more powerful fans are required to achieve destratification.
The floor air coverage of a fan will be greater the higher the ceiling of the building. This is because of the natural cone shape of the air pattern produced by the fan. (See Figure 1)
(HPWP models have increased floor area coverage because of more powerful motors.)
Canarm provides two types of fans:
Use the following chart to choose the correct fan size/type and quantity to suit your requirements. (See Figure 2)
What size & how many fans would be required for a building that is 100 feet wide x 200 feet long & has as ceiling height of 16 feet?
A typical layout for this building is illustrated below.
An additional fan should be used about 10 feet in front of each shipping door to act as an air curtain & reduce heating bills in the winter.
