Chore-Time's ENDURA® Fan Offers Energy Efficiency, Corrosion Resistance
MILFORD, Indiana, USA - Chore-Time introduces its high-performance ENDURA® fan. Featuring a long glass fiber composite shroud for durability and corrosion resistance, the patented with additional patents pending fan produces 27,100 CFM and 23 CFM/Watt performance at a static pressure of 0.10 inches of water column.
Chore-Time calculates that the "Energy-Efficient Version" of the 57-Inch (145-cm) ENDURA Fan could save 14 percent or more in energy costs, compared with the "High-Capacity Version" of Chore-Times own 54-inch (137-cm) Galvanized Tunnel Fan, while using the same number of fans.
Exceptional shutter performance contributes to the high energy efficiency of the ENDURA fan. Chore-Times HYFLO® Shutters do not suffer the typical 12- to 15-percent loss of efficiency and air speed typical of dirty louver-style shutters, so air speed is maintained to the end of the flock, when it is needed most.
Additionally, the HYFLO Shutters improve fan performance by minimizing obstructions during operation. They deliver up to 10 percent more air than traditional shutters with 75 percent less opportunity for air leakage. A cable attachment helps maximize efficiency by allowing the HYFLO Doors to float left or right together.
The strategic material selection used to construct the ENDURA fan results in superior durability in both extreme high and low temperatures. The composite shroud and shutter doors contain 35% fiberglass for strength. The fan drive and support structures are galvanized and powder-coated. Also available is an optional stainless steel fan blade and shaft.
To further reduce maintenance concerns, the fan includes an automatic belt tensioner, rugged air-handler bearings, and a three-wing, heavy-duty fan blade. The unit is engineered to have a slight downward tilt so that it is self-draining.
Chore-Times ENDURA fan can be installed 60 inches (152.4 cm) on center over 56.5-inch (143.5-cm) framed openings. It can also be retrofitted over openings for many 48- through 54-inch (122- through 137-cm) fans.
Other standard features include a black, high-density polyethylene cone to aid in light control. Variable speed operation is optional.
