Military and aerospace component manufacturer AMETEK Rotron has released the MIL-XTM Extreme Performance series, a tubeaxial cooling and ventilation fan series with the highest performance in the industry for its package size, according to the company.
With significant advances in aerodynamics, motor and DC drive, says the company, the new fan maintains ruggedness and reliability suitable for mission- and personnel-critical duty. For example, it can be used to cool electronic countermeasures mounted on armored vehicles to prevent detonation of improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Additional applications include commercial aircraft electronics, telecommunications, heat exchangers and crew ventilation.
The MIL-XTM Extreme Performance Series delivers best-in-class 300 cfm at 1.5 iwg (inches of water gauge)—a 24 percent increase in airflow over previous models with the same package configuration. Operating at 7500 RPM, the MIL-XTM delivers up to 42 percent efficiency, a significant increase compared to a typical tubeaxial fan efficiency of 27 percent.
Standard features include shock-proof construction (meeting Mil-S-901), immersion and wash-down capability, over voltage and reverse polarity protection and locked rotor shutdown with automatic restart.
