Calculator Description
Fan Calculator v1
The fan calculator determines the performance characteristics of generic, axial and centrifugal fans based upon applied power and blade design.

Fans (axial and centrifugal)

Subject

Whilst most fan designs (axial, Sirocco, centrifugal, etc.) are suitable for many applications including; extraction, distribution, compression, etc. and their performance is almost entirely governed by blade design and rotational speed, flow and head characteristics are generally governed by the fan's inlet and/or outlet ducts.

Most technical reference books and related data sites make this subject a little more complicated than it needs to be. CalQlata has tried to simplify the subject with the fan calculator and its technical help page on this website.

Calculator

You calculate the performance characteristics of the blade using either the Axial or Centrifugal calculation option; the output data from which you use to calculate the performance of the fan.

Generic

The performance of a generic fan is based upon volumetric flow rate and blade efficiency (both of which can be determined using the Axial and Centrifugal calculation options), the outlet area of the fan diffuser and the inlet and outlet atmospheric conditions.

The generic calculation option therefore defines the performance characteristics of the fan using calculation results from Axial or Centrifugal.

Axial & Centrifugal (fan-blade design)

These calculation options define the performance characteristics of the impeller (via its blades).

Their output data can be used for input in the Generic calculation option.

Fans provides the most efficient blade inlet angle (minimum inlet loss) should you wish to use it. You alter the outlet angle manually in order to minimise the outlet loss and thereby maximise impeller efficiency.

Fans also provides lists of various output data (against rising impeller speed) for plotting in your preferred spreadsheet.

For help using this calculator see Technical Help
