The difference between forward blade and backward blade of centrifugal fan impeller

The impeller type of centrifugal fan is mainly divided into forward blade and backward blade. These two types are very different. In this article, we will compare the difference between the two types of blades. So it can be your future reference when choosing industrial centrifugal fans.

1. Pressure: When the impeller size, speed and flow are the same, the full pressure of the forward type impeller is larger than that of the backward type impeller.
2. Efficiency: Although the pressure of forward blade is the maximum, it is mainly due to the  increase of the dynamic pressure of the impeller outlet. This dynamic pressure is more than 50% of total pressure. This partial dynamic pressure must be converted to static pressure in the spiral case behind the impeller. Practice proves that the efficiency of spiral case is low. In addition, the loss of the curved blade runner is larger, so the efficiency of the spiral case and the impeller is higher than that of the former.
