Horton WindMaster Revolution
fulfills engine airflow demand
May 17, 2010 1:41 PM
Horton has introduced the WindMaster Revolution, a high-efficiency, hybrid-flow fan that meets the airflow demand of EPA10, Euro VI, and Tier 4 engines.
“The WindMaster Revolution is a radical change from current technologies, combining only the best features of axial-, mixed-, and radial-flow fan technology,” said Steve Wardleworth, vice-president operations/general manager fan and shroud business unit at Horton. “The WindMaster Revolution is optimized to move air more efficiently around the engine and through the under-hood compartment. The result is energy savings and the highest efficiency available, with the lowest operating noise--vitally important in meeting emission regulation changes that require better cooling performance. Presently being tested in numerous vehicle and equipment models, we anticipate this will become the leading technology for new on- and off-highway applications.”
WindMaster Revolution fans are designed for compact engine compartments and are available in two sizes. These 550-millimeter fans are engineered for off-highway equipment and vehicles and medium-duty trucks. The 750-millimeter fans are engineered for heavy-duty trucks and some off-highway equipment and vehicles.
These fans have 20% greater airflow than axial-flow fans, lower operating noise, and enhanced efficiency. Compared with radial-flow fans, WindMaster Revolution fans have 40% smaller depth and a larger inlet diameter, require a smaller space, and do not require space for complex fan housing. Versus mixed-flow fans, WindMaster Revolution fans have more than 15% greater airflow, 30% smaller depth, greater efficiency, and a larger hub section that provides for more fan drive mounting options.
