Electric fans are a common sight in homes, offices, and public places. They provide an easy and efficient way to keep cool during the hot summer months. But have you ever stopped to think about the thermal protection of your electric fan? You may not realize it, but this feature is crucial for both the efficiency and safety of your fan. In this blog post, we will discuss why thermal protection is so important and how Saftty leads the way in providing reliable solutions for electric fans. So buckle up and let’s dive into the world of thermal protection!
What is Thermal Protection and Why is it Important?
When it comes to electric fans, the importance of thermal protection cannot be overstated. Not only does thermal protection help to protect your fan from damage in the event of an electrical fire, but it can also prolong the life of your fan motor. Given how often electric fans are used, and how quickly they can become overheated, it is important that you take all necessary precautions when installing or using a thermal protector.
The design principle of the Thermal protector switch is to use bimetallic plates to make switches or relays. Two layers of alloys with different thermal expansion coefficients are laminated to form bimetallic plates. The active layer has a large expansion coefficient， whose passive layer is small. When the temperature rises, the bimetal will bend and deform due to the different expansion coefficients of the active layer and the passive layer. When the temperature is restored, the shape of the bimetal will also recover, thus forming a switch that closes and opens according to temperature changes.
When installing the thermal protector, it is necessary to ensure that the thermal protector closer to the source of heat is chosen. This is because when temperatures rise close to or above 140˚F (60˚C), the bimetal will deform more significantly than at higher temperatures. By choosing a thermal protector that is closest to where your fan will be installed, you can minimize potential damage caused by overheating.
Electric fans are a great way to stay cool and comfortable during the summer months, but like anything else, they can become damaged if not used properly. In this article, we discuss the importance of thermal protection in electric fans and why Saftty is leading the way in providing it. By using our products, you can be sure that your electric fan will work effectively and protect you from damage.
