CA Centrifugal Fan

We offer centrifugal fans in a wide variety of speeds, voltages, horse powers and configurations. The following defines how we group and lay out these fans in our model designations. Please review and understand the following:

CA18103-230G   

The number above represents a CECO centrifugal fan that is high speed (3450 rpm), has a 18" diameter wheel, a ten horse power 230 volt motor, three phase, without a control panel. Lets break it down.  

 

CA18103-230G    

This CA stands for our high speed centrifugal fans. All high speed fans have totally enclosed, fan cooled motors standard. These fan normally appear in commercial applications.  High RPM is 3450. CECO also offers low speed fan: Click Here.

 

CA18103-230G

The number in this location defines the diameter of the centrifugal wheel.

 

CA18103-230G

These numbers represent horse power and phase. In our sample we have a ten horse power motor that will operate on three phase power. Please note, all CECO CA fans are three phase as a standard. Our low speed fans can be ordered in both single and three phase.

 

All motors are three phase totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) , and operate at 3450 RPM. Motors may operate on either 230 or 460 volts. Fans ordered without controls are shipped with wiring connections open, for field wiring to correct voltage. Fans ordered with controls must have the voltage specified, as field voltage conversion requires changing entire control panel. Single phase CA fans may be specially ordered as needed. Call your dealer for further information about single phase fans.

 

CA18103-230G

This space represents if the fan has controls or not. Our example fan has a dash meaning no controls are here. If the letter C is shown, a control panel is built into the fan.

 

Fans with 230 volt controls include mounted weather-resistant starter panel. Panel consists of magnetic contactor with line-voltage (230 volt) coil, motor, overheat protection, and off-run-start toggle switch. Starter does not include fuses for branch circuit protection, or an electrical disconnect. An electrical disconnect that is visible from the fan must be added!

 

Fans with 460 volt controls (three phase only) include mounted weather-resistant starter panel. Panel consists of magnetic contactor with line-voltage (460 volt) coil, motor, overheat protection, and start-stop push-button switch. Starter does not include fuses for branch circuit protection, or an electrical disconnect. An electrical disconnect that is visible from the fan must be added!

 

CA18103-230G

These number represents the voltage of the fan. If no controls are required (as our sample does not) this is what voltage the motor will be wired for and ready for your electrician to complete the installation.

If your fan needs controls (dash mark to be replaced with a C) this is the voltage that those controls will be wired for. See above for information about controls and voltages.

 

CA18103-230G

Now we have added this G, representing an all galvanized housing. CECO does not use bolts or a fastening system to join the main body of the housing together.  All housing are mig welded together to form a rigid structure which is restraint to high vibration. After the welding process, housings are hot-dipped forming a complete galvanized unit. This process is standard with all CECO fans. If you prefer we offer the following options.

 

Powder Coating: CECO offers powder coating service as an option over galvanizing. We powder coat all fans white, with control panel lid and intake cone black. No letter designation is used in the part number. Please specify this option with the dealer when ordering.

 

High Solids Paint: CECO offers a high solid paint service. Standard painted housing are premiered and then painted red (all so known as South East Red). No letter designation is used in the part number. Please specify this option with the dealer when ordering. Other color schemes can be provided. Please have your dealer inquire at the factory.

 

CA18103-230GTH

By adding these letters we have specified our fans configuration. Unless specified otherwise, all CECO fans will be shipped Bottom Horizontal (BH) discharge. For Top Horizontal, add "TH" to model designation; Up Blast, add "UB"; Down Blast add "DB". See chart below.

 

CA18103-230GTHEXP

CA fans may be ordered with explosion-proof (EXP) motors instead of the standard TEFC motors. Controls for fans with EXP motors must be obtained locally. When ordering,  replace the suffix "TE" in the model designation with suffix "EXP". Single phase fans with EXP motors may be specially ordered as needed.
