High-tech fans from ZIEHL-ABEGG are ready for immediate use, including in an emergency

They are amongst the most difficult and sensitive locations for deploying fans – hospitals. Operational environments where everything has to function with precision, be ultra-sterile and offer antibacterial protection, areas of use where ventilation systems are required to operate at a high level of performance on a continual basis so that both medical practitioners or research staff are always able to function at their very best, as well as to ensure the highest standard of care for the clinics’ patients themselves at all times and in an environment that provides good indoor climate conditions.

ZIEHL-ABEGG fans – certificated to meet the most demanding requirements 

In order to satisfy every technical detail of these highly demanding requirements in a user-friendly way, when it comes to ventilation technology, Baikal Mechanical, the heating ventilation and air-conditioning company based in Brooklyn, New York, has for years put its faith in one reliable partner and, consequently, in highly innovative, high-efficiency and, simultaneously, sustainable and economic technology, more precisely, in ZIEHL-ABEGG’s blue technology.

Hospitals in New York and throughout the world depend on the very best, highly reliable and highly efficient air handling systems in the sensitive areas of operating theatres and laboratories, including in an emergency situation e.g. if a ventilation system needs to be replaced quickly. That’s why the firm of Baikal Mechanical relies on the fans specially certificated for the purpose, ZIEHL-ABEGG’s blue technology, when it comes to installing systems in the buildings of its many New York clinic customers.

The fans, specially developed for hospitals in accordance with biomimetic concepts, equipped with efficient, energy-saving ECblue motors, provide antibacterial protection, without any risk of corrosion or release of gases. This is also made possible by the special composite material used to manufacture the impellers in a one-shot injection moulding process. The high-performance composite material developed for these ultra-sterile, hygiene applications, allows for a modern, antibacterial method of hospital ventilation.

ZIEHL-ABEGG’s  impellers, developed in accordance with biomimetic findings and manufactured seamlessly in a one-shot, in-house injection moulding process, are made of a high-performance composite material for the manufacture of high-performance fans of the highest quality. Thanks to their superb aerodynamic design, combined with state-of-the-art, intelligent ECblue motor technology, they have been awarded the Premium Efficiency seal of value – the Royal League.  

With headquarters in Künzelsau, Baden-Württemberg, Germany and its subsidiaries located on every continent in the world, ZIEHL-ABEGG is able to secure the continuous, direct supply of high-tech impellers and ECblue motors. Final assembly to customer specifications is then carried out directly and promptly at the modern Greensboro assembly plant. This includes the various orders to the fan specialists of its American customer Baikal Mechanical which receives direct support from the ZIEHL-ABEGG subsidiary in Greensboro which is responsible for North America and supplies the customer with the corresponding blue innovation products.

High-tech fans – ready for immediate use, including in an emergency

However, in particular when it comes e.g. to difficult as well as, in some cases, urgent installation assignments, the resultant speed in the supply chain, is just one factor in the long-standing business relationship between ZIEHL-ABEGG and Baikal Mechanical, a relationship which is based on trust. In those situations where everything needs to run like clockwork one hundred percent at all times and nothing can be allowed to shut down, such as in case of hospitals, what also counts is having the very best, most sophisticated, highly-efficient technology – exactly what ZIEHL-ABEGG products reliably guarantee.

Highly efficient fans – in New York’s oldest hospital, “The Brooklyn Hospital Center” and many others

The ZIEHL-ABEGG hospital fans are used in various prestigious clinics, e.g. in New York City. Such as e.g. in Brooklyn’s oldest hospital, founded in 1845, “The Brooklyn Hospital Center”, where old AC motor-driven fans were replaced by the latest, highly efficient and extremely economical ZIEHL-ABEGG fans equipped with ECblue motor technology. 

The ZIEHL-ABEGG fans also operate in the “Jacobi Hospital” in the Bronx, which is the only hospital southwest of Westchester to have an affiliated burns clinic and must therefore be fully operational and in ‘tip-top condition’ at all times. Just like at the “Jack D. Weiler Hospital – Montefiori Medical Center” which has gained national recognition for its clinical excellence as a medical teaching facility and a university hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. It’s the same at “Columbia University NYC”, one of the world’s most important research centres and simultaneously a university campus for countless international students – throughout these buildings, with their special requirements for the sensitive areas, the specially developed and highly efficient ZIEHL-ABEGG fans ensure perfect air conditions. With energy savings of up to 20-25%, the fans are environmentally friendly, operate with minimal vibration and noise levels and are maintenance-free.

“The best in blue technology, ensuring that hospitals function smoothly and at their very best on a day-to-day basis, in optimum ventilation conditions”

With ZAbluegalaxy, ZIEHL-ABEGG also offers a cloud-based platform that provides for 24/7 monitoring of intelligent fan technology, from any location whatsoever. “The best in blue technology, ensuring that hospitals function smoothly and at their very best on a day-to-day basis, in optimum ventilation conditions” says Mirco Hermann, Managing Director of ZIEHL-ABEGG Greensboro, in summary, “as with all other areas of use, that’s also our goal in this very demanding field of medical applications” – and the positive results every time prove that we are meeting these demanding requirements!
