Flex-A-Lite® electric fans help keep your engine cool. Auxiliary electric fans (pushers) are available to mount in front of the radiator, providing extra airflow and engine cooling when needed.
Primary electric fans (pullers) are designed to mount behind the radiator and replace a factory belt-driven fan. These improve the horsepower and torque delivered to the wheels by eliminating the parasitic drag of the stock belt-driven fan. Electric fans also allow quicker warm ups and cool downs, longer water pump life, less fan noise, improved air conditioner performance and improve gas mileage.
The revolutionary, patent-pending Flex-Wave™ LoBoy electric fan from Flex-A-Lite® has greater airflow, is more efficient and is quieter than traditional S-blade and straight-blade designs. The Flex-Wave fan moves up to 20 percent more airflow than Flex-A-Lite Trimline fans, and up to 33 percent more airflow than the comparable electric fans from the competitors!
This 16-inch Flex-Wave LoBoy fan moves 3,000 cfm of airflow and an extremely thin, 3 3/16-inch depth.
More than having just a different look, the Flex-Wave electric-fan blade has several aerodynamic advantages for air movement.
16-inch Flex-Wave™ LoBoy Electric Fan (puller) P/N 238
- The leading edge of the fan blade is no longer a single, solid line. The sine-wave design creates leading edges that cut through the air first. This starts movement in the air around the blade with greater efficiency.
- The wave surface of the blades creates channels for the air to move along, producing more airflow and reducing energy losses.
- The wave surface forms a winglet at the tip of the blade, further increasing efficiency by reducing air vortices.
- The trailing edge of the fan blade also has variations, which reduces wind noise.
