Systemair has launched the IV-50 EC High-Induction Centrifugal Jet Fan for underground and enclosed parking garages, a ventilation product certified to the Air Movement and Control Association International’s (AMCA) Jet Fan Certified Ratings Program (CRP, Rating Method H), which is tested to Standard 250 for both air/thrust performance and Standard 300 for sound performance.
The certification, specific to the needs of jet fans, is a significant development for the engineering community, because it verifies jet fan performance values. The AMCA certification provides third-party confirmation of the IV-50 EC thrust, sound, and airflow test data gathered in AMCA’s International laboratory.
Along with its certification, Systemair’s IV-50 EC High-Induction Centrifugal Jet Fan offers several standout features, including an electronically commutated motor, which allows for a soft start, eliminating the need for a motor starter and VFD. This induction fan delivers a throw distance of 150 feet at a terminal velocity of 196 feet-per-minute, while producing 51 Newtons of thrust. The 51 N of thrust produces an Induction Factor of 22, putting into motion an airflow several times greater than the rated CFM.
Additionally, the IV-50 EC defies the notion that jet fans are loud, boasting a total sound value of 73 dBA at 10 feet.
With a height of less than 10.25-inches and footprint of 32.8- by 50.5-inches, the IV-50 EC is a powerful compact centrifugal high-induction jet fan. It installs with ease with the electrical box, quick-connect lever terminals, and control options that integrate with building automation systems.
