Alfer has a 100% infrastructure for both aerodynamic and mechanical design, analysis and testing of the fan, thanks to the R&D capabilities it has developed.
Using our advanced CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) capabilities, we are able to simulate the operating conditions of the fan and develop how the fan behaves at all operating points in the computer environment.
R&D - FILTER
Throughout the manufacturing process, Alfer places great emphasis on research and development. Our aim is to produce systems that are of better quality and lower energy consumption for our customers.
Using our advanced CFD resources through our Alfer R&D unit, we can simulate the operating conditions of the filter and see how the filter performs at the exact operating points in the computer environment.
We are developing a perfect filter with CFD capabilities.
R&D – FAN
How Do We Design?
In addition, CFD allows us to see on screen how a particle of dust follows a path inside the fan and whether there is any dust build-up on the blades.
Using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), an interactive conceptual design program enriched with Alfer's original design correlations, Alfer creates the conceptual design of the fan based on the final design inputs.
Flow analysis of the fan and modelling of the flow inside the fan are carried out and the design is uploaded to simulation programs.
The second stage, the determination of critical speeds and mechanical analysis, continues once the correct conceptual design has been achieved. In this phase, modal analyses of the fan, shaft analyses and analyses of the mechanical forces on the impeller are carried out.
Physical deformations, whether the steel applications used meet these strength values, whether there are physically overstressed areas in the fan, and improvements where necessary.
After completing the mechanical analysis, Alfer concludes that the fan is manufacturable.
