Patterson Fan shows what it says is the only high-velocity quiet fan in the industrial market: the DB. While the newly redesigned unit still supplies a forceful dual column of air, it reportedly is lighter and quieter than before. Patterson engineers lowered the decibel output from 65 to 60 and reduced the shipping weight by nearly 34 percent to 39 lb. Conceived with distribution and fulfillment centers in mind, this low-profile unit seamlessly combines the need for increased air movement with the noise reduction requirements commonly found in today’s modern pick modules. In addition, its small footprint provides more headroom in pick modules, dock-door applications, and low-ceiling areas, allowing 50 percent more clearance than a similar performing 18-in.-high-velocity fan. It features a 0.5-hp motor to power the double blower, throwing an evenly distributed dual column of air 50 ft. with minimal energy consumption.
