Thrilled to launch KühlFans, Brand Ambassador of Kent RO Hema Malini reminisced her 17 years long association with Kent and complemented the way the brand has continued its journey. “I am delighted to be a part of this innovation. I am sure like the Kent’s RO Purifiers people will love the energy saving Fans of Kent”said Ms. Hema Malini.
Induction fans, which are currently being used, are one such product that guzzles 80 W of power. More than 100 crore induction fans are wasting millions of units. Addressing this issue, Kent has launched Kühl Fans to cut down on energy waste. Built using BLDC technology, these fans will be a boon for the ceiling fan industry. The biggest USP of the elegantly and aesthetically crafted Kühl range of fans is that they have low power consumption.
Unlike normal induction motor-based fans, BLDC fans come with a brushless electric DC motor that uses permanent magnets. The use of BLDC motors eliminates the friction, motor noise, and sparks that usually occur in the case of normal fans due to the continuous contact of brushes with commutators. Since wear and tear are eliminated, BLDC motors have a longer service life compared to typical induction motors.
