Rite-Hite HVLS Fans Drive Down Energy Costs

Monday, April 04, 2016

To keep people more comfortable year-round – and to help building owners and managers drive down energy costs – Rite-Hite Corporation offers the Revolution® Fan. Designed to deliver optimal performance, the high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan supplements heated and cooled air for more efficient and cost-effective air circulation in virtually any facility. 
“In a process called destratification, this HVLS fan gently distributes the air in an equal manner throughout a facility,” said Andy Olson, Rite-Hite marketing manager. “Not only does it improve working conditions for employees, it helps save energy and related costs.”
A single Revolution Fan circulates a large volume of air up to 85 feet from the fan’s center in all directions for optimum heating or cooling of an area encompassing up to 22,000 square feet. Unlike traditional floor and ceiling fans, the easy-to-operate and extraordinarily quiet fan turns slowly to gently move air – reducing the ambient noise level and a facility’s energy consumption by up to 30 percent. 
Available in 8-, 12-, 16-, 20-, and 24-foot diameters, the Revolution Fan’s four-blade design includes easy-to-use controls that allow users to adjust fan speed, or operate the unit in reverse. The unit comes standard with mill-finished, aluminum blades. Rite-Hite Fan’s Propell-Aire™ blade design has a complex contoured shape (tilt, taper and twist) that varies along its length, allowing for maximum air movement. Mounting heights range from 15 to 80 feet from the finished floor to the bottom of the fan blade. Also available is a touch-screen control box for operation of up to 18 Rite-Hite Fans.
The unique design of the Revolution Fan directs air outward from the center in a conical shape, eliminating dead-air holes directly beneath the fan and in building corners – translating to more uniform airflow from floor to ceiling and from wall to wall. For maximum longevity, the Revolution uses a rotationally balanced blade/hub connection along with vibration-absorbing resilient material that reduces stress to the hub by 50 to 75 percent. A robust motor and an extruded, precision-milled aluminum hub provide reliable operation with virtually no maintenance.
For ease of installation, the Revolution Fan features a steel, universal mounting bracket. The mounting system also includes a beam clamp, motor housing, and a three-way motor-to-hub safety connection.
