Chatsworth, CA – August 18, 2009 – NMB Technologies Corporation, a Minebea Group Company, announced today the availability of a new series of high performance, weather resistant, oil proof and dust proof ac axial fans.

This weather resistant (WR) ac fan series is currently available in three sizes, 80mm X 25mm, 119mm X 38mm, and 150mm X 172mm X 38mm.  Designed and manufactured for harsh environment applications, such as industrial machines, inverters and chargers; as well as for outdoor applications where dust and water are present, such as solar power systems, security systems, marine products, electronic enclosures/control cabinets, and telecommunications equipment. 

“The industrial and commercial markets, such as refrigeration and solar, require cooling fans that are not only weather resistant, but long life and cost effective.” says Fernando Palarca, fan product sales manager for NMB Technologies Corporation.  “The WR ac fan series not only addresses these requirements, but overachieves in quality and performance.”
