Fan Wall

Fan wall technology is a design approach where a single large fan is replaced by an array of smaller fans. A fan wall consists of multiple panels and fans mounted together. Fan walls can be used in air handler units and cooling towers.

Benefits

This array of fans offers benefits such as:
  • CFM redundancy
  • Decreased maintenance costs over a AC fan counterpart (no belts, pulleys or grease to worry about)
  • Lower Running Costs (more energy efficient)
  • Integrated VFD Technology (speed of fan array can be adjusted with purchasing expensive VFDs)
  • Noise reduction – EC fans are 20% quieter than AC fans

What is a Fan Wall System?

The technology is called by many names: fanwall, fan array, etc. However, they all mean the same thing; a combination of smaller fans that are built into a wall section to replace a single large fan.

A Baikal fan wall or fan array is designed to meet system airflow requirements and is controlled through the use of a small controller that is integrated into a small electrical box outside of the air handler unit and located to allow the operator to adjust the speed of the fans as required.

Fan wall air handling units come in different sizes to match the performance and airflow requirements of a facility and optimize efficiency in operation.

Fanwalls are designed with high-efficiency motors that ensure energy efficiency, variable frequency drives which enable each fan to be turned on or off and each fan’s speed to be controlled.

Where is a Fan Wall Used?

Fan wall air handling units are used in hospitals, universities, sport stadiums, concert halls, fabrication facilities, commercial and residential buildings, and other venues.

The fan wall/array is the best option if you want to reduce air handler footprint, reduce noise, improve reliability, increase energy efficiency, lower costs, and simplify installation and maintenance.

Fan wall technology is a design approach where a single large fan is replaced by an array of smaller fans. A fan wall consists of multiple panels and fans mounted together. Fan walls can be used in air handler units and cooling towers.

This array of fans offers benefits such as:

  • CFM redundancy
  • Decreased maintenance costs over a AC fan counterpart (no belts, pulleys or grease to worry about);
  • Reduced downtime – An EC fans can be swapped out in 15 minutes
  • Lower Running Costs (more energy efficient)
  • Integrated VFD Technology (speed of fan array can be adjusted with purchasing expensive VFDs) and;
  • Noise reduction – EC fans are 20% quieter than AC fans.

In this article, we will discuss what a fan wall is, what its benefits and advantages are, some of its technical specifications, and its practical applications.
