A wind turbine’s nacelle houses a shaft, gearbox, brake, bearings, generator and other essential and complex components that generate copious amounts of heat. Continental Fan’s direct drive APK Panel Fans dissipate that heat quickly and efficiently. Using ELTA Cast Aluminum Airfoil Impellers, AFK Flange Fans allow a designer to select a fan matched exactly to design conditions.
Power Conditioning and Switchgear Cabinets
Electrical and electronic components within the various power conditioning and switchgear cabinets at a wind turbine site develop large amounts of heat. If not dissipated properly, that heat can result in damage or failure of these components. Continental Fan’s line of TMK Motorized Impellers provides a compact and efficient solution for cooling these cabinets.
Wind Turbine Tower Circulation and Ventilation
For recirculation and ventilation of the wind turbine tower, Continental Fan provides multiple options. Direct drive AFK Flange Fans are ideal for non-ducted applications. For ducted applications, TCD Centrifugal Blowers possess the performance characteristics required to overcome any system resistances.
Continental Fan is a leading supplier of wind turbine cooling fans for nacelle ventilation, GCU (generator control unit) cooling, cabinet cooling, and tower ventilation. With many years of experience and a well-earned reputation for providing rugged and dependable fans, we strive to simplify our customers’ design process by working with them to develop custom 3D fan models for their wind turbine applications.
