How ventilate enclosures effectively

Natural ventilation may not be always sufficient. In these cases, an appropriate forced-air solution is required to cool the application and remove unwanted heat generated from the system or enclosure. Nowadays with the ever-increasing density of components housed into an enclosure, cooling fans are likely becoming an efficient way to keep the sensitive electronic devices protected against overheating and failures.

Choosing the right fan

Available in both AC and DC configurations, compact fans are usually classified into axial and centrifugal fans. Axial fans move large volume of air proportional to increased speed, against little working pressure, while centrifugal fans, often called as blowers, provide airflow at the higher pressure required.

Compact fans: custom-design and energy-efficiency

Fandis North America offer a wide range of standard and custom-design compact fans in different sizes, air volumes and pressures to satisfy the demand of various applications where a fan is necessary to create a flow of air. Our product offering also includes energy-efficiency EC fans, special versions tested to withstand harsh environmental and working conditions and fan accessories.

AC/DC fans and blowers

Depending on the application, the axial and centrifugal fans can be fitted with either extremely durable ball bearings or with smooth running sleeve bearing system.

EC fans

The EC fans brings the best of AC and DC technologies. These environmentally friendly fans are driven by low consumption motors with electronic control, which assures high ventilation efficiency.

Harsh environmental fans

These special fans are designed to perform in hostile conditions, ensuring safe and reliable operation. They can be dust- and water-resistant (IP55) or tolerate high temperatures up to +90°C, thanks to a particular all metal construction.

Fan filters

The fan combined with a filter is used to maintain the correct temperature within the enclosure by exchanging heated inside air for filtered cool outside air.


NC Thermostat controls the heater and turns it on when the internal temperature falls below a set point. In doing so, it keeps the temperature warm enough to prevent moisture building up on the electronic components.

Orientable fan

This fan with metal guards is used in combination with cooling unit or air/water heat exchangers to ensure a better distribution of cold air inside the enclosure.
