Horton Unveils Expanded WindShift Modular Fan Product Line
ROSEVILLE, Minn.–Horton’s WindShift™ product line now offers more fan configurations, including a wider selection of computer-optimized blades. The new WindShift WSC and WSD blade designs provide maximum efficiency in low-restriction airflow applications such as HVAC, ventilation, stationary power generators, auxiliary coolers and others. Engineered to fit in a narrower, more compact space, these new blades have less deflection, resulting in increased durability. Competitively priced, WindShift Modular Fans provide greater design and manufacturing flexibility for higher performance and faster, easier testing and prototyping.
The fans are constructed with innovative clamshell knuckles that clamp each blade to a 0.25-inch (6 mm) steel center disk. This allows blades to be set to a specific pitch angle for increased airflow. Other options include clockwise or counterclockwise rotation and custom center disks for virtually any blade count, fan diameter and pilot or bolt circle pattern.
“By offering our customers a greater range of modular fan solutions, we can engineer fans to meet or exceed the cooling demands for more applications,” says Jeff Wood, Horton’s product manager, fans. “This flexibility combined with unique manufacturing processes and Horton’s exceptional service allows us to deliver custom-configured fans with shorter lead times.”
WindShift Modular Fans are offered in diameters from 18 to 60 inches (450 to 1525 mm) with 3 to 16 blades, equally spaced or staggered to modulate system noise. In addition to flat plate center disc mounting, straight- and tapered-bore adapters are available. WindShift Modular Fans are compatible with Horton fan drives.
