What is a Forward Curved Impeller?

A forward curved impeller is characterised by a relatively large number of shallow blades facing the direction of rotation.

For this type of impeller, flow from the impeller is produced in a tangential direction. The forward curve of the blade imparts kinetic energy to the air requiring a scroll housing to convert the kinetic energy into static pressure. For any given constant speed, the input power characteristic increases as flow increases from zero to maximum. At higher flow rates, care must therefore be taken that the load presented by the impeller does not exceed the rating of the driving motor.

 

Key Features and Benefits

  • Lower speed of operation than backward curved fans
  • Compact impeller design
  • Cost-effective pressed steel or aluminium construction
  • Can be used for high temperature applications

What is a Backward Curved Impeller?

They are called Backward Curved due to the direction of rotation. The blades curve backwards from the inner edge to the outer edge, relative to the direction of rotation, and may be of plate or aerofoil form.

For this type of impeller, flow is produced in a radial direction because the impeller develops static pressure across the longer length of blade. On the front side of the blade a positive pressure is generated pushing the air outwards and on the reverse side of the blade a negative pressure is generated. This negative pressure draws air in to the space so that the front side of the following blade picks this air up and pushes it outwards.

 

Key Features and Benefits

  • Higher efficiency than forward curved products
  • Can be utilised without additional scroll housing
  • Peak power demand is a centre of performance characteristic, reducing potential for motor overloading at lower pressures
