Reliable and efficient industrial fans contribute to worker comfort, safety, and operational efficiency while reducing energy consumption. Thus, the investment in top-notch industrial fans is indispensable across industries.

Rigorous Testing Procedures

At Hartzell Air Movement, rigorous testing is integral to our commitment to delivering superior-quality industrial fans. Comprehensive testing ensures that every fan meets the highest performance, reliability, and durability standards. These stringent testing procedures are designed to identify and rectify potential issues before the fans are delivered to customers.

Performance Testing to Ensure Optimal Airflow and Efficiency

Hartzell thoroughly tests each fan to verify its vibration characteristics and efficiency. Hartzell’s AMCA-accredited lab measures airflow rates, static pressure, and power consumption. Analyzing these performance parameters, Hartzell ensures that our fans deliver optimal airflow, meet specified requirements, and operate at peak efficiency.

Noise Level Analysis and Vibration Testing for Enhanced Durability

Hartzell Air Movement in addition places great importance on analyzing noise levels and conducting vibration testing. Noise level analysis helps ensure the fans operate within acceptable noise limits, providing a comfortable and quiet working environment. By mitigating excessive noise, Hartzell enhances the overall user experience and minimizes disturbances caused by fan operation.

Vibration testing to AMCA standard 204 is another critical aspect of Hartzell's rigorous testing procedures. Through vibration analysis, we evaluate the structural integrity and durability of the fans. This testing helps identify potential weaknesses or areas of concern that could impact the fan's performance or longevity.

The rigorous testing procedures at Hartzell Air Movement are instrumental in ensuring that our fans leaving the Hartzell plant meet the highest performance, reliability, and durability standards.
