Trending Cool Ideas


Unique air flows, sealed and submersible compartments, low noise, harsh environments and power efficiency are just some of the trends creating significant challenges for effective and cost-efficient cooling and thermal management across a broad range of industries and applications. In fact, these and other developments have led designers to add fans to systems that may already utilize passive cooling technologies, such as heat sinks and heat spreaders. But designing fans into an application may also have to address considerations such as mechanical failures, increased acoustic noise, and increased power consumption by the fan itself. In this webinar, we’ll look at the advantages of various fan technology, the design challenges engineers must address, and the innovative solutions some OEMs have developed by partnering with a trusted fan manufacturer.

In this webinar, Editor-in-Chief Kate Smith and Orion Fans’ Vice President of Marketing David Luna and Engineering Manager Jay Crutti will discuss the cooling trends impacting a variety of markets and applications—particularly those affected by supply chain issues. The trio will discuss how evolving market trends are driving the development of new cooling solutions utilizing AC, DC, and EC fan technology. More specifically, they’ll talk about the latest application-specific fans utilized across a broad range of industries, such as high static pressure fans, IP68 and IP69K-rated fans, louvered-filter fan kits, fireproof filters, reversible flow fans, and high-temperature fans.
