Pole Star offers a comprehensive service for the Building Services Engineer, Maintenance Firms, Facilities Companies, Heating Contractors, Electrical Engineers etc. We refurbish fan decks to any design, in any quantity with quick deliveries. These are often alternatives to current competitor brands, or direct equivalents to old and obsolete models which are either no longer available, or expensive when purchased from other suppliers.
We offer both a standard turnaround which is generally 5-7 working days and we also offer an express service which is 1-2 working day turnaround. For larger volumes part shipments can be made or a whole shipment a few days later.
In many buildings as fan coils have been running for 20-30 years the bearings and motors start to fail and the moving part of the fan deck reaches the end of its life. When a deck starts to reach the end of its life many sites and eingeers look at the options of refurbishing the units. In most situations the trays, scrolls and wheels are in perfectly good condition and it is just the motor that has failed, as a result refurbishment is often a far cheaper and quicker option than manufacturing complete new units.
Fan Deck Styles
Our new fan decks, come in a variety of forms in either single, double, treble or quad blower units. Below are a list of the most common fan deck types:
A single scroll blower driven by an external rotor motor, 2 and 4 pole with 1 to 4 speeds available. This is the most compact of designs.
A single blower is driven by single shaft PSC motor, 2, 4 or 6 poles, 1 to 6 speeds via a resilient base mounted motor for reduced noise and vibration levels. Air volumes up to a maximum of 1000 m3/hr or 600cfm.
A double blower is driven by double shaft PSC motor, 2, 4 or 6 poles, 1 to 6 speeds, using resilient mounting base, motor power from 30W to 420W, impellers 108mm to 238mm diameter. Air volumes up to a maximum of 3000 m3/hr or 1800cfm.
Triple blower is driven by double shaft PSC motor, 2, 4 or 6 poles, 1 to 6 speeds, using resilient mounting base, coupling to third impeller. Air volumes up to a maximum of 7000 m3/hr or 4200cfm.
A triple blower which is driven by two PSC motors, 2, 4 or 6 poles, 1 to 6 speeds, using resilient mounting base. Air volumes up to a maximum of 7000 m3/hr or 4200cfm.
Quadruple blower is driven by two double shaft PSC motors, 2, 4 or 6 poles, 1 to 6 speeds, using resilient mounting base, motor power from 30W to 420W, impellers 108mm to 238mm diameter. Air volumes up to a maximum of 8000 m3/hr or 4800cfm.
With the onsite facilities we have our speciality is being able to manufacture new decks of any quantity to your specification. With the guillotine, lathe, milling machines, presses and bending equipment we are quickly and efficiently able to produce trays to most profiles to suit your needs, below are some examples of the most common tray profiles: (insert images of our workshop I will send these images in next email) (use image from fan deck manufacture Janine)
Fan deck controls
Finally the last option when producing a new fan deck is what/if any controls you would like to have on your unit, we offer switches, speed controllers, thermostats and other controls, for an indepth look please go to Switches & Controls
If you would like to receive an approximate quotation for a new fan deck please email or call the office today. For an exact price please download and fill in the appropriate fan deck sheet below with the dimensions you require.
The Refurbishment Process
We receive a wide range of fan decks from a vast array of applications; they all arrive to us in varying conditions. Some appear in pristine condition apart from a failed motor, whilst others requite a little more care and attention to bring them back to their original condition.
Here are some of the cleaning processes which we may use in order to refurbish the fan decks.
We use an industrial cleaning chemical to dip the complete trays in overnight, this helps “lift” the dirt, grime and grease which makes the next stage easier.
Using an industrial pressure washer we spray down every deck. Again we use a cleaning fluid to clean trays, scrolls and wheels to remove any dirt that could hinder the performance whilst also making the deck more aesthetically appealing.
If after the chemical dip and pressure wash some dirt remains we use our dip tray cleaner to scrub the units down. This is the final stage of cleaning.
Once cleaned the decks are dried off (at which point they can be re-sprayed if requested). They are then re-assembled complete with a new motor and new wheels/scrolls if they required replacing.
