Big Idea, Small Compressor: Silent Fan Inspired by Nature

Big Idea, Small Compressor: Silent Fan Inspired by Nature | Biomimicry | Scoop.it

"Low noise levels are important in industries where the user can benefit from having the air compressor within close proximity to the work station, such as in the woodworking or automotive industry. The GA VSD+ uses a technologically advanced fan to help achieve noise levels low enough for a normal conversation to be held while the machine is running. The fan blade utilizes a design with a serrated edge that is inspired by the aerodynamic and mostly silent wings of an owl. With an aerodynamic design, the fan needs less energy to cleave through the air, making it more energy efficient."
