Elta Fans bolsters BSI certification for smoke fans with VSDs

Elta Fans bolsters BSI certification for smoke fans with VSDs

Testing is now complete for Elta Fans’ Applied Technology division, meaning ventilation specifiers can access fully compliant high-temperature fan packages complete with a variable speed drive (VSD).

By testing its high-performance smoke fans alongside various VSDs in accordance with BS EN12101-3:2015, Elta Fans Applied Technology aims to offer the market a more competitive holistic solution. In addition, Elta Fans’ BSI certification is now issued from the Netherlands to ensure its products can be CE marked irrespective of the outcome of Brexit negotiations.

With the construction industry tackling a balancing act of declining budgets alongside improved sustainability and safety targets, Elta Fans strives to develop highly efficient impellers that provide an economic way of moving high volumes of air at low to medium pressures. By incorporating the VSD with the fan itself, system specifiers and designers are offered a streamlined approach to compliance.

The highly bespoke and precision-engineered fans were tested at BSRIA’s testing facility in Bracknell, for F300 (300°C 2Hr) and F400 (400°C 2Hr). Having the fans running with VSD during the test means that the fans and VSD can be used together without the need for bypassing or fitting filters to the VSD in fire mode.

Elta Fans Applied Technology’s specialist production plant is based in Fareham, Hampshire. The division designs, manufactures, and supplies fans for a variety of specialist OEM applications, including power generation, offshore oil and gas, agriculture, and marine. Capable of delivering both standard and bespoke products, the company utilises expert knowledge and the latest technology to develop solutions for customers across the globe. The Fareham site processes raw materials to produce fan casings and ancillaries, before assembling them and selling to these customers.

Bradley Crisp, Applied Technology Sales Engineer at Elta Fans Applied Technology said: “With urbanisation becoming an unrelenting trend across Europe, the limitation for space is leading to the construction of more mid-rise to high-rise buildings. In turn, this is driving an increase in demand for high-performance equipment compliant with stringent government regulations to ensure the safety of people and property. While there are different ways to ensure the systems are compliant, the most effective and optimal way for our customers is for our fans and VSDs to be tested together, hence why we have sought the BSI accreditation.”
