Motor/Blower Assembly: Regal Beloit
Regal Beloit says its new DEC Star system combines patented technologies of Genteq® HEB blowers and axial flux Genteq motors to improve efficiency for HVAC appliances, and reduce input wattage by 15 to 35% over standard blowers with traditional ECM motors. The Dual Efficiency Configuration (DEC) removes the motor from the blower inlet and eliminates restriction to improve the system efficiency of furnaces, fan coil units, packaged units, and ground coupled heat pumps. Previously available with a 10-in wheel diameter, Regal has now launched a new 9-in wheel diameter system. Both diameters are available in various widths. The company claims the system’s design provides uniform airflow for improved heat transfer and reduced hot spots and pressure drop across the appliance.
