Hürner Funken - Concrete Ventilator Chassis


Hürner Funken produces several types of industrial ventilators.

Due to the usage of plastics for the ventilator chassis, the ventilators aren’t that resistant against strong environmental influences - Especially the resistance against UV-light is a challenging topic.

 

The benefit of using concrete is the natural resistance against normal environmental influences. A special concrete formulation combined with special and selected raw materials allows a sufficient resistance against appearing acids and other aggressive materials. Further benefits are the noise and vibration damping of the concrete shell. The special developed Quantz-Concrete is fluent and thus any shape and geometry can be generated. 

 

Also the mold technology was investigated and optimized for the production process.


Two technologies are available:


a) traditional casting of 7mm thick casing shells    with double sided molds 

b) 3D rotation of the material in molds.


Both methods are leading to successful and satisfying results.
