New Form of Wheel

The wheel cone of the mixed flow wheel is precisely matched to the inlet cone for low leakages and turbulence, enhance efficiency and reduce sound.

Advanced Design

The CFD simulation technology is used for optimized design which is also validated through repeated trials. This makes the IMF wheel has far higher efficiency than the traditional mixed flow wheel.

Manufacturing Process

The wheel and flow passage components are molded and continuously welded. With high strength and precision, the product has reliable quality.

High Balancing level

Both after the continuous welding process is finished and after epoxy coatings is applied on the surface, the wheel undergoes dynamic balancing tests. It reaches AMCA 204- G2.5 balancing level, well above the G6.3 standard that is required in China. The wheel balance is thus improved, vibrations and sound reduced.

Sound Characteristics

The performance characteristics of the mixed flow wheel range between the axial and centrifugal wheel. Through the tests performed in the AMCA accredited laboratory (AMCA 300 Standard), we find that the mixed flow wheel has excellent sound performance that is friendly to human ears.


Compact and Cost-effective Scroll-free Structure

Not limited to the inlet distance from the scroll, the YFISH fan has no scroll and airflow is directly drawn into the wheel for pressurization which is a much improved airflow pattern. The design is compact requiring less room which is a primary choice of box-type fans.

Performance Characteristics of Mixed Flow Type

The performance characteristics of the mixed flow fan range between the axial and centrifugal fan. But the mixed flow fan has higher efficiency and lower sound. It takes in larger volume than the inline centrifugal fan and has higher pressure than the axial fan. If the operating point moves between A and B as shown here, the wheel of the mixed flow fan has a smaller diameter than the inline centrifugal fan at the same speed and when it has the same wheel diameter as the axial fan, the speed is lower.

Sound Quality: Low Frequency and Quiet Operation

The quiet sound quality of the mixed flow fan is attributed to its aerodynamic structure. As is shown here, the mixed flow fan produces far lower sound than the axial fan and DWDI centrifugal fan. What is more, the sound value is mainly in the low octave band (62.5-250Hz) and human ears do not feel disturbed by it.

Aluminum Alloy Housing

The housing is made of aluminum alloy which has great strength, light weight and excellent sealing properties. At the same time, acoustical measures can be taken for better overall performance. Soundproofing egg crate foam wall tiles and a soundproofing structure of two layers are available.

Direct and Belt Drive Fan Types and More Flexible Model Selection

— The direct drive type has higher transmission efficiency, compact design, low maintenance, and there are no easily damaged parts.

— For the belt drive type, the YFISH fan has extensive applications. Model selection is more accurate and greater flexibility in adjusting to jobsite conditions is ensured.

Design of Different Discharge Arrangements and Flexible Applications

For the direct drive type, there are four discharge arrangements and seven for the belt drive type. These arrangements can adapt to different design requirements and there will be easier and more convenient jobsite installation.
