Rosenberg Introduces New Generation of Backward Curved Fan Impeller That Boosts Efficiency and Reduces Noise

Rosenberg's new seven-blade backward curved impeller can significantly reduce noise and increase efficiency compared to standard eight-blade impellers. The new impeller is available in nine sizes from 250 to 630 mm for use with Rosenberg's EC motors, AC external rotor motors or standard IEC motors.

Charlotte, N.C. April 30, 2013


Rosenberg's new LRHF-B impeller is a backward-curved seven-blade aluminum fan wheel especially designed for demanding air-movement tasks with low noise and high efficiency requirements. The new "B-Wheel" design can increase efficiency by nearly six percent and reduce noise by three decibels compared the standard eight-blade design, depending on the application.

On the B-Wheel impeller, the blade diameter is smaller than the outside diameter of the cover and support plate, which acts as a rotating outlet diffuser. This new wheel geometry allows for impeller efficiencies up to 78% and also improves air volume over standard impellers operating at the same speed.

Sizes include 250 mm, 280 mm, 315 mm, 355 mm, 400 mm, 450 mm, 500 mm, 560 mm and 630 mm, for application with Rosenberg's EC motors, AC external rotor motors or standard IEC motors. All Rosenberg fan motors are CE, UL and RoHS approved.

Rosenberg B-Wheel impellers feature all aluminum construction and robot-assisted welding. They are suitable for hygienic or outdoor applications without additional finishing or surface treatment.

With the enormous efficiency advantages of this new series of impellers, users can easily meet the values specified in the European Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC (ErP Directive).

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
