Air Handling ApplicationsAir handling applications

NovaMAX™ motors are ideally suited for air handling applications, particularly applications that benefit from high efficiency over a very broad speed and load range.  

Examples of Variable Speed, Variable Torque Applications

Centrifugal Fans & Blowers

HVAC ApplicationsElectric motors driving fans and blowers in commercial and industrial HVAC applications typically run full-time and represent one of -- if not THE -- largest contributor to the end users’ power bills.  Hence, producers of commercial and industrial fans and blowers are being driven by their customers to provide more energy-efficient systems.

Varying the speed of the motor dramatically improves the efficiency of the system and provides rapid payback on the investment.  VFDs (variable frequency drives) have therefore been widely and increasingly adopted, opening the door to consideration of permanent magnet motors, such as NovaMAX’s, for further improvement in efficiency

To date, the largest obstacle to adoption of permanent magnet motors in HVAC air handling applications has been cost, design provides permanent magnet motor performance at a first cost that is more comparable to an induction motor, yielding significant energy savings and producing a very attractive payback on the small first cost premium.
