Air-inlet grille for axial and centrifugal fans

Sound absorber for refrigeration, ventilation and air conditioning technology

The FlowGrid air-inlet grille from ebm-papst – the efficient way to drastically reduce noise levels in refrigeration, ventilation and air conditioning technology. Disturbance of the flow of air into the fan produces a high noise level: Particular installation situations involving asymmetrical air intake for example can lead to great turbulence. Wherever there are constrictions, so-called vortex string formations develop. These collide directly with the rotating blades and generate unwanted noise – namely broadband noise and narrowband, tonal noise components, also referred to as propeller noise or blade passing frequency.

With this in mind, the Mulfingen engineers developed the special FlowGrid air-inlet grille which has a straightening effect on the inflowing air. The vortex strings are split upon hitting the grille and considerably weakened as they flow through it.  In other words, the air-inlet grille drastically reduces noise-generating disturbance – resulting in a decrease in sound pressure over the entire frequency range, however particularly at the disturbing low blade passing frequency. The air-inlet grille is suitable for use with both axial and centrifugal fans. And best of all: There is virtually no effect on power input and air performance.

Use of the air-inlet grille for a condenser with axial fan for example makes it possible to reduce the noise level by 3.9 dB(A) and the blade passing frequency by 16 dB. There is thus considerably less need for insulation and noise protection and the corresponding standards can be more easily satisfied. Another way of improving the sound level is to combine the air-inlet grille described with the ebm papst AxiTop diffuser on the discharge side. This both increases energy efficiency and reduces noise emissions still further – above all in the medium frequency range.

The air-inlet grille is made of tough composite material and is available up to fire protection class UL94-5VA standard. In addition to condensers, the FlowGrid is also suitable for use with flat panel air conditioners, centralised air conditioning units, air purifiers and heat pumps.
