Same advantages of proven Rite-Hite HVLS fan technology in a compact design to better move air in smaller spaces, areas with low ceiling heights
This High-Volume/Low-Speed (HVLS) fan supplements heated and cooled air for more efficient and cost-effective air circulation in any commercial facility. This product circulates a large volume of air up to 50 ft from the fan's center in all directions for optimum heating or cooling of an area encompassing 7,800 sq ft. Unlike traditional floor and ceiling fans, the fan turns slowly to gently move air – reducing a facility's energy consumption by 20% to 30%.
Available in 8-, 10-, and 12-ft diameters, the Revolution SP Fan's four-blade design includes easy-to-use controls that allow users to adjust fan speed, or operate the unit in reverse. The unit comes standard with polished aluminum blades. The blades can also be painted to match the operating environment. Mounting heights range from 10 to 30 ft from the finished floor to the bottom of the fan blade. Also available is a touch-screen control box for operation of up to 18 Revolution SP Fans.
The design of the Revolution SP Fan directs air outward from the center in a conical shape, eliminating dead-air holes directly beneath the fan and in building corners – translating to more uniform airflow from floor to ceiling and from wall to wall. The Revolution SP has a rotationally balanced blade/hub connection along with vibration-absorbing resilient material that reduces stress to the hub by 50% to 75%. A robust motor and an extruded, precision-milled aluminum hub provide reliable operation with no maintenance.
The Revolution SP Fan features a steel universal mounting bracket. The mounting system also includes a beam clamp, motor housing, and a three-way motor-to-hub safety connection.
The Revolution SP Fan comes with a three-year parts and one-year customer satisfaction money-back guarantee in addition to a 10-year structural integrity warranty.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
