AirMotion Sciences Inc. has introduced its new line of 16- to 24-foot HVLS (high volume, low speed) fans, to be known as Big Simple Fans.

The HVLS fans have small, energy efficient motors and are used for cooling, heat de-stratification, ventilation and as alternatives to air-conditioning in large facilities. These industrial ceiling fans offer improved performance over traditional HVLS fans, but with much greater versatility, to reduce energy costs and environmental stress, while enhancing comfort and productivity.

The Big Simple Fans are lower cost, larger in size and come with simpler features, all in a powerful yet compact and lightweight package. While providing all the energy savings and comfort benefits HVLS fans are known for, these fans move and mix up to twice as much air as competing HVLS fans, the company claims.

“Our design brief was simple,” states the company founder and CEO, Peter Caruso. “Engineer a completely new HVLS fan that moves and mixes massive amounts of air, is cost competitive, has a compact and lightweight power unit, enables air to be moved equally effectively up or down, is built robustly and uses some of the innovative technology from our Big Smart fans.”

This new line of fans features 3 HP motors, aluminum gear reducers and carefully matched variable frequency drives. This line of fans makes use of the company’s proprietary control software in its low-voltage fan controllers to allow manual to fully automatic operation using built-in temperature sensors.


In addition, these fans have powerful extruded aluminum blades and pitch angles that were carefully engineered for their effectiveness in blowing air equally well upwards and downwards with low turbulence and maximum impact.
