New products taking the world by storm

FPowlet axial fan specially developed for heat pumps

With the new FPowlet fan, ZIEHL-ABEGG has pushed open the door to the important heat pump market even wider. It’s also important to know that the heat pump will become one of the most important factors in future heating systems worldwide. Because inefficiency will be a thing of the past, sustainability and energy certificates and verifiable low energy costs will be a matter of course.

Owl – owl wing / Owlet – the nature’s it’s the most silent nocturnal hunter. One of the models at engineer floor of ZIEHL-ABEGG for the technical implementation to the most silent impeller wing of their fans   

FPowlet  – Fan for the heat pumps of the future   

From the very beginning, ZIEHL-ABEGG’s technical teams have been researching and developing the best and most efficient ways and methods for the operation and application of quiet, energy-saving, high-tech fans from the Royal League. In this context, the biomimetic component plays one of the major roles in impeller design. The pure genius of motion patterns in the world of animals and even plants which have evolved over millions of years, fascinating in its perfection.

That makes the difference – that’s what the development engineers realised

The observations and analyses of these proven and routine processes in the natural world are used by the research and development engineering teams at ZIEHL-ABEGG to apply the knowledge gained for technical processes in the impellers, in conjunction with special materials, requirements, etc. “This is where real engineering skill begins,” says Dr. Sascha Klett, Chief Technology Officer and “exactly what sets it apart from other product offerings, demonstrating precisely our vision and our aspiration to identify subtleties and apply them intelligently.

The new FPowlet fan has been developed in accordance with the biomimetic guidelines of ZIEHL-ABEGG and specifically for the “heat pumps” market of the future.

Bionic leading and trailing edge and a new wing span… causes: Exceptional airflow and performance
Minimal acoustics
Highly efficient and sustainable aerotransport  

Bionic axial fan – FPowlet – with special advantages, such as scarcely audible in application, highly efficient in effect and performance, energy-saving – conforms the future climate and environmental standards

Up to 5 dB quieter than ever before

With its globally unique biomimetic air inlet and outlet edges and the triple -blade impeller concept, the new series of fans offers the basis for the resistance-free, quiet movement of air. The new design of the biomimetic axial impellers also renders the normally standard reduction in heat pump temperature during night-time virtually superfluous, as the application acoustics are extremely quiet and almost inaudible.

The perfect combination for customised performance

Working in conjunction with the intelligent ECblue motor technology that drives the FPowlet and the perfectly regulated airflow demand, this combination of components represents the future in the heat pump sector.

ZIEHL-ABEGG is currently offering the new biomimetic fan for many customer-specific devices and in three sizes.
