Key Considerations for Fans & Blowers in the OEM Automotive Industry

With the push toward electrical drive systems and motors, auto-industry fans and ventilators must often be highly specialized.

Automotive OEM profit margins are at a 10-year high, and total OEM investments are steadily increasing. But total shareholder return and returns on invested capital are weak, with various innovation-related challenges reshaping the auto industry.

To meet shifting demands, forward-thinking manufacturers are working to create innovative industry solutions. Miniaturization, for instance, has led to the development of various lightweight nano and micro blowers, which provide optimal cooling with low power consumption and energy use.

Fans & Blowers for OEM Automotive Markets

With the push toward electrical drive systems and motors, auto-industry fans and ventilators must often be highly specialized. A wide range of auxiliary functions depend on fans and ventilation, and active cooling systems, whether used for thermal management of navigation or entertainment systems, light sources, modern headlights, interior cooling, or engine control units, are becoming increasingly popular for reliable cooling of temperature-sensitive components.

To meet these new industry demands, fans must be big enough to flow a sufficient amount of air to cool components, while having a small enough power-draw to be efficient.

These cooling systems must also be quiet and resilient to ensure simple, noiseless operation. The luxury car space can’t survive without entering the electronic space; manufacturers and engineers are moving quickly to create reliable, innovative fan solutions for OEM automotive markets.

Modern Fan & Blower Solutions

Condensation and evaporation fans, brushless DC motor technology, and air-dynamic impellers that reduce noise and vibration are among today’s leading cooling technologies. All of these solutions are available from Pelonis, an industry leader in the manufacture of axial AC and brushless DC fans and motors.

Pelonis fans can function in temperature ranges of -40 °C to 85 °C while providing:

  • Zero quality or performance compromises
  • Long-term use, with a lifespan of more than 20,000 hours
  • Lightweight design with integrated features for greater control
  • Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technology for speed control

Pelonis’s Twin Centrifugal Automotive Blowers, in particular, offer easy operation and speed control, while their range of Automotive Fans provides quiet efficiency and long-life operation.

With both ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 certification and state-of-the-art test equipment to ensure all fans are reliable and consistent, Pelonis Technologies is leading the way in automotive cooling solutions.
