Reinforcement Features

Internal Braces -

On applications where the width of the wheel is greater than half of the diameter, braces will be required, especially where capacitator type moters are used. Because of rapid acceleration of the motor, it eliminates the possibility of work hardening of the blades thus eliminating breakage.

Peripheral Rings -

Peripheral rings are used on high-speed applications where the blade is wider thatn the normal width in order to retain the blade in position with shock loads of rapid acceleration. Where the wheel is running at 3450 RPM, and full width of better, it is well to use a peripheral ring; in some cases a set of braces is mounted to the peripheral ring as well as an additional set of the front ring.

Peripheral Rods -

Peripheral rods are used on high-speed applications to retain wheel ridigity. Peripheral rods are used for many rugid, high-speed applications

Reinforcement Disks -

Reinforcement disks are used on most wheels to add a higher ridigity to the back disk.

Epoxy Resin -

On applications such as diesel engines and others that might be considered over-the-road applications, such as refrigerator trucks, a combination of peripheral ring braces is used. In addition, an application of epoxy resin is applied to eliminate a period of vibration from originating in the blades. Such applications have been successfully used on Jan-Air products. When using epoxy resin there are temperature limitations, and the epoxy should not be used in apllications running over 250°F

Copper Brazing -

A joining process whereby a filler metal or alloy is heated to melting temperature above 800 °F (427 °C) and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts by capillary action. At its liquid temperature, the molten filler metal and flux interact with a thin layer of the base metal, cooling to form a strong, sealed joint.
