Calculating Phase 3 Motor Horsepower

Posted by Margaret Wood, Marketing Manager on Feb 10, 2021 2:11:58 PM

Motor Nameplate InformationIt is relatively easy to calculate how much horsepower a fan is consuming in the field. Once calculated, this information can be used to identify the additional amount of flow and pressure the fan can produce within the limitations of the motor. To perform the calculations, we just need two field measurements which include the motors amperage draw and the line voltage (both can be measured with a voltage meter) and two items shown on the motor’s nameplate. This includes motor efficiency (often shown as “NEMA NOM. EFF.”) and power factor (shown as “PF”).

High Temperature Fans

Posted by Margaret Wood, Marketing Manager on Mar 16, 2020 3:59:55 PM

High temperature fans are used for a variety of purposes, typically ranging from 1200F-1800F (650C-980C). Some common industries are aluminum, steel, copper, carbon/charcoal, waste incineration, and others. Fan sizes typically range from 12"-84" (305mm-2130mm) but larger custom fans can be manufactured as well. The common fan types are centrifugal fans with forward curved or paddle style wheels, or axial fans with single-direction or reversing flow construction. Typical arrangements are 1 and 8, with materials ranging based on application demands. For instance, 316 SS can be used for fans up to 1500F, and other materials can withstand different temperature ranges. Some common accessories include insulation between alloy hot surfaces and mild steel cold surfaces, water-cooled shaft, heat slingers, and floating construction to accommodate thermal growth.

Glen Todd started with a brief introduction of what nyb fabricates and its' operations. James Smith and Jay Amberg conducted tours throughout the facility. While touring, students spent time with Teresa Tabbert learning the CNC machining operations (left picture). Ben Ruholl helped to explain the laser operations (right picture).Rob Werner educated them on robot operations, and Fred Finn and Mike Morrison demonstrated welding operations. Students were given a great opportunity to see manufacturing jobs in their hometown.
