Lynx Appointed UK Distributor for Flexxaire Auto Reversing Fans

October 2012

The Flexxaire TAC RangeNorthamptonshire-based Lynx Engineering has been appointed as the new UK distributor for the Flexxaire TAC range of auto-reversing engine cooling and radiator cleaning fans manufactured by Flexxaire Inc in Canada.

The Flexxaire franchise supersedes the Cleanfix range of fans previously supplied by the company.
 

Commenting on the appointment, Lynx Engineering's Managing Director, Nick Ewbank, said: "We are delighted to be able to add the Flexxaire range to our product portfolio. The Flexxaire system reduces downtime and improves the efficiency of vital farm assets such as tractors, combines, forage harvesters and telehandlers by keeping radiators free of dust and debris, greatly reducing the risk of overheating. Flexxaire fans can be programmed to purge at automatic intervals or purging can be done manually at the touch of a button."

"They can also increase machine output, save fuel and reduce emissions," he continued. "Flexxaire's smart fan system, which is integrated with the engine's control system, features variable blade pitch and airflow. The system continuously monitors ambient conditions, engine load and engine fluid temperatures in real time, automatically adjusting the airflow to minimise the power consumed by the fan.

"Having the option of running the blades flat, neither drawing in air to the radiator or expelling it in the purge mode, results in less load on the engine, saving a significant amount of fuel and power. On cold mornings, Flexxaire really comes into its own. The fan stays in the neutral position until the engine reaches operating temperature. When the engine needs cooling, the Flexxaire temperature sensor or the machine's ECU signals the fan to return to the required pitch setting."

Flexxaire fans can use either hydraulic or pneumatic pressure for fan blade pitch adjustment and are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations, making them ideally suited for a wide range of machines and applications. The range also includes 'high-end' hydraulically actuated systems that are designed to replace the entire fan assembly including the pulley and bearing components for more bespoke installations.

A choice of two control systems can be specified. These include a simple 2-position system that allows the fan to easily purge debris from the radiator by reversing the blade pitch and a more sophisticated system that combines radiator purging functionality with infinitely variable pitch and precision cooling.

Prices are yet to be announced but are expected to range between £1750 and £3500 fully fitted for the basic fan system dependent on the fan size/configuration and the control system specified.

The midsize wheel loader Caterpillar 950K has been added to Flexxaire's growing list of reversible fan applications.

The timer-controlled Flexxaire TAC2000H hydraulically actuated fan is now available for the Caterpillar 950K.

Flexxaire fans automatically reverse the cooling airflow to purge debris from radiators and other heat exchangers, resulting in reduced engine overheating, operating downtime and repair and maintenance costs. Moreover, Flexxaire fans monitor the coolant's temperature and reduce the airflow if not necessary. This can lead to lower fuel consumption and noise levels as well as an increase in the machine's efficiency.
