Horton has announced an online application it says offers users access to the company’s airflow management expertise. The Airflow System Configurator at www.hortonww.com/resources identifies the fan model and design of Horton’s plastic, modular and metal fans used in on-highway, off-highway, stationary and industrial equipment.

When a user enters design parameters, the Web-based application processes the data and provides fan options, with links to show fan performance curves for the specific configuration. Those seeking plastic fan configurations receive a part number for ordering and a reference drawing with general and mounting dimensions.

“Increasingly, our customers have very specific needs that warrant individualized solutions,” says Jeff Wood, Horton’s fan product manager. “The Airflow System Configurator provides customers with decades of Horton’s expertise to select fan designs that meet their exact requirements.”

Horton’s application includes immersion and downstream restriction as parameters for evaluating fan performance. The application is Web-based and continually updated with the latest test data on the newest designs. Users can watch narrated video demonstrations or review a PDF to learn to use the system.
