System Effect


Ever wonder why a particular system does not perform as expected? In many cases the under-performance is due to system effect. Learn how various inlet and outlet conditions affect fan and overall system performance. Witness a demonstration varying from ideal to worst case scenarios on an operating fan with liver performance measurements. If there was ever a case for more space in a mechanical room, this is it.
