Fan

« Back to Glossary Index

A fan is an externally driven machine which, by use of an impeller, creates flow within a fluid, typically a gas such as air. The function of fans is to move a volume flow and to impart as much energy to it as is required to overcome the resistances. A pressure drop occurs between the start and end of the flow.
