Repurposing innovative technology that saves space and improves efficiency
A major furnace manufacturer approached Regal in need of a combustion air blower that would fit into a reduced size furnace, targeting 30,000 to 60,0000 BTU input rates. A model of the furnace combustion compartment was provided to the FASCO® motor technology team, leading to the creation of a compact 90% plus efficient induced draft blower that would fit in the available space.
To save additional space, the unit provides a four point mounting connection to the furnace flue box. This provides rigidly molded-in pressure switch mounts and an innovative exhaust in-line that was mounted with the customer’s exhaust flue pipe. Existing technology was scaled down to meet the application needs while utilizing the following intellectual property: a Z-axis scroll, snap together blower housing, lobed exhaust, 1-piece impeller, notched blade impeller, and a dynamic condensate drain.
Regal’s brands have been the industry leader in residential HVAC systems for over 100 years. We have developed a well-deserved reputation for being the first in the industry from the first ECM motor to the first BLDC blower for water heater applications. We continue to listen, innovative, and develop solutions that help change the homes we live in.
The Fasco® brand offers one of the world's most complete line of custom HVAC motors and blowers in the industry. The FASCO® brand was the first to offer a blower, fan, and motor integrated into a single unit to save installation time while increasing reliability. Our BLDC motor/blower technology powers hundreds of unique solutions that save money.
Genteq® brand of motors introduced the first commercially viable electrically commutated motor used in residential HVAC systems in 1987 offering higher efficiency, quieter operations, and enhanced control. We have never stopped innovating, improving, or listening to the customer to continue to enhance, simplify, and improve on our ECM technology. Today, we are a global leader in this segment.
The Genteq® brand of hermetic motors is an integral part of condensing units used in in residential applications. Our innovations and technologies provide for variable speed, size reductions, and high quality solutions that deliver outstanding performance, increasing payback and reducing warranty expense.
Century® HVAC motors are a broad mix of motors for retrofit as well as for new applications where induction and variable speed motors are required. These reliable workhorses continue to provide high performance in a variety of applications.
Our mechanical brands continue to innovate, providing V-belts and pulley solutions along with high performance bearings that reduce energy consumption and provide long dependable life. The OEM's or contractor's choice is Browning® and SealMaster® belting and bearing solutions when high performance is required.
Our expertise goes beyond just product engineering to include a deep understanding of your applications so that together we can apply the best solutions to optimize your product design, reduce overall cost, and increase your equipment's performance.
