Nowadays, ventilation engineering cannot be effective if it does not resort to specific analytical calculation programs.
In the real-world, it is very common to find oversized fans operating under conditions of poor performance, resulting in excessive and unnecessary consumption of electrical energy.
Designed to meet the needs of the air moving industry, including HVAC, our industrial fan software is a dynamic tool that accurately performs sizing of centrifugal fans and blowers, and axial fans.
For the sizing of fans, the programming logic is developed according to engineering concepts homologated by international standards and institutions, such as:
The correlation functions used to calculate dimensional and physical parameters of each new fan have their origin in the classical theories of fluid mechanics, becoming known as the Fan Laws or Affinity Laws, while the noise predictions are based on acoustic principles and guidelines established by professional organizations.
For better accuracy, the software can also perform calculations and analysis improved by considering Reynolds number, Mach number, viscosity and compressibility of the fluid.
In a highly organized, flexible and friendly environment, the user establishes the design requirements and the software performs all calculations and analysis necessary for sizing of the fan:
In ventilation systems with variable demand, the use of adjustable speed drives is usually the best way to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum energy consumption.
Under such circumstances, it is essential that the designer has a broad view of the behavior of the fan to be selected.
Our software has the most advanced engineering charts with high resolution details, which show characteristic curves throughout the operating speed range of the fans.
Since fans and blowers are often driven by industrial electric motors, the software has an extensive database containing data of electric motors from around the world.
In addition to the operating conditions, the software allows the user to set up construction features and choose components for each fan, such as:
Once the fan has been selected, the software automatically generates all the engineering reports, datasheets, charts and CAD drawings in several standard paper sizes.
The display and printing of reports use a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface:
All of these documents can be easily customized, printed, emailed or exported to formats like:
As a result of customer demand for more flexible and comprehensive solutions, the software has a host of configuration options that allow the user to customize it to suit his personal wishes and preferences.

Built with multilingual user interface and an advanced unit converter, our software is fully capable to meet the needs and requirements of any manufacturer in the world, regardless of the volume of its production or the variety of its product range.
Our industrial fan software is also prepared to meet the latest American requirements for fan efficiency classification.
The FEG classification system can be used by government agencies or regulatory bodies around the world to define the energy efficiency requirements of fans used in specific applications.
The FEG is a simple way to indicate the aerodynamic quality of the fan.
While the fan efficiency is a function of the operating point on the performance curve, the FEG is based only on the fan’s peak total efficiency.
Similarly, our software also meets efficiency requirements of the European countries that prefer the FMEG classification system - Fan Motor Efficiency Grade.
