Electronic component fans are found in many everyday products in a variety of industries including food and beverage processing and machinery, networking, telecom, marine, and transportation. Component fans are used to cool electronic devices, maximize performance, and prevent overheating. Some fans might require regular cleaning with high pressure, high temperature water, especially if the fans are used in assembly production lines where hygiene and sanitization of equipment are critical. The challenge – cleaning the fans without causing damage to their electronic circuitry and moving parts.
Orion Fans offers a solution to that challenge by developing a line of fans that are impervious to dust and water ingress. Orion Fans – a global manufacturer of standard and custom thermal management solutions, including AC, EC, and DC fans, fan accessories, fan trays, blowers, and motorized impellers – recently launched a new series of IP69K-rated AC/DC fans that are designed for harsh environments.
High-pressure cleaning and washdowns of fans prevent dangerous contamination and the spread of mold and bacteria. The fan’s IP69K rating ensures that no damage will occur during high temperature and high pressure washdown procedures, and that no contaminants enter the fan motor.
The IP69K rating indicates that in terms of solid material, the fans are “dust tight,” meaning there’s complete protection from contact and no ingress of dust. Also, in terms of liquids, Orion’s fans offer protection from close-range high-pressure and high temperature water jet washdowns. For more information on the IP69K rating, check out the IP (ingress protection) ratings guide here.
With over 40 years of experience, Orion Fans has been supplying quality engineered cooling products and assemblies for a wide range of industries and applications. Orion Fans has engineering, sales, and manufacturing facilities in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
