SPAL USA Is Your Source For Superior Cooling Fans

SPAL is the place to go for all your automotive cooling needs. The company provides an extensive range of high-performance brushless cooling fans, centrifugal blowers, and fluid pumps (12V & 24V) capable of handling the most stringent cooling system requirements in any market and application – for automotive, bus, off-highway vehicles, construction, military, stationary equipment, and more.

SPAL USA, the North American subsidiary of SPAL Automotive Srl, has been providing fan products from Italy since 1989. The company’s sales and distribution center are housed in a 40,000-square-foot facility in Ankeny, Iowa. From this location, SPAL USA provides value-added systems, components, and support for OEM and aftermarket applications.

SPAL sealed brushless (SBL) products have experienced many years of field use providing extreme reliability, flexibility, durability, and performance under the most challenging environmental conditions in engine/oil/CAC cooling, electronics and battery cooling, HVAC, and other settings.  When it comes to versatility, performance, and quality, SPAL is second to none.

All SPAL SBL fans feature motors sealed to IP68 and IP6K9K standards (waterproof/dustproof & waterjet capable), integrated power and signal electronics, “soft start” technology (eliminates electrical in-rush spike), digital control for smooth and reliable operation, temperature sensor options for full variable speed control, reduced axial dimensions, low weight, and high efficiency.

 

SPAL SBL motors also feature patented “Sine Wave Technologies”, resulting in quieter and smoother running motors that, in turn, reduce NVH and “felt vibration” levels in electric vehicles.  Additionally, the brushless motor design also reduces the number of wear components versus standard brushed technology to deliver an extremely long-lasting life. All SPAL SBL motors are rated to operate in high-temperature conditions, higher than typical DC motors on the market today.

To safeguard themselves and prevent premature motor failure, SPAL SBL motors have a number of protective features to detect problematic situations. To avoid damage to the motor it provides automatic power de-rating in severe over-temperature operating conditions that allow the fan to run at lower speeds rather than cause permanent motor failure.  It also checks for over-and under-voltage and locked rotor conditions to prevent catastrophic failures to the fan motor.  SPAL SBL technology is specifically designed for applications where airflow performance, low power consumption, automatic speed control, long motor life, and high efficiency are key requirements.
