SABRE Sickle bladed fans are the latest addition to the Vent-Axia range offering improved pressure characteristics over axial units and lower sound levels. The advanced blade design and purpose built motor ensure excellent reliability and speed control.
SABRE Plate mounted sickle fans are based on an integrated impeller and external rotor motor design, which produces a very compact unit. Together with a specially designed bell mouth inlet and mounting plate, the complete fan is lightweight and ensures an excellent performance to sound level ratio.
The mounting plate is formed from a single sheet, protected with a tough epoxy paint finish. Inlet finger guards and motor supports are manufactured from steel rod, electro welded for extra strength. Sizes 250 to 710 finger guards give protection to BS 848 Part 5. Manufacture is controlled to BS EN ISO 9001 Standards.
The motors and impellers are factory matched, statically and dynamically balanced to ISO 1940, part 1Quality Class G.6.3
The external rotor motors are specifically designed and styled for this range of fan. Ball bearings are greased for life. Sizes 315 - 710 motors are protected to IP54, against dust and moisture complying with BS EN 60529. They have ribbed aluminium body castings for efficient cooling with Motor insulation to Class 'F' (from -40°C to + 70°C). Speed controlled sizes 450 to 710, 6 & 8 pole motors are only suitable for operating temperatures of up to 40°C.
The Sabre range is available for either single phase 220-240V 50 Hz capacitor start and run or three phase 380-415V 50Hz. Motors are fitted with Thermal Overload Protection which should be wired into all controller circuits and into starter contactors to prevent motor damage due to overloading / overheating. Units are suitable for speed control by either electronic, voltage reduction or frequency inverters where permissible.
Forms of Running
Plate mounted fans (ex-stock) are supplied for extract use (Form 'A' running).
An IP54 terminal box is supplied with all models with M20 x 1.5mm gland entry offering protection against dust and water.
The fan performance, is in accordance with tests to ISO 5801.
Fan sound levels, measured in a reverberant chamber in accordance with ISO 3744 Part 1. Published dB(A) figures are free field sound pressure levels at 3m with spherical propagation at a reference level of 2 x 10-5Pa (20 micro-Pascal). The sound power level spectra figures are dB with a reference level of 10-12 Watts (1 pico- ~ watt). To ensure minimum noise levels during speed control, an auto transformer speed control is recommended
