Product Description & Info
Over time, the name Panaflo has become synonymous with high quality, low
noise cooling fans. Shown here is the 80mm ultra quiet model.
Panaflo's unique hydrowave bearing (HWB) addresses the traditional weakness
of sleeve bearings: axial friction. By utilizing its unique HWB system, the
thrust plate "floats" on a circulating film of oil, which greatly
reduces the axial friction and the bearing's deterioration. The HWB pattern on
the bearing virtually eliminates thrust plate contact.
As the shaft rotates it acts as a pump constantly circulating the oil in the
radial, as well as the axial direction. The sealed system and reservoirs of oil
maintain the proper lubrication to minimize mechanical contact and prolong the
fan's life exptectancy. The radial direction analysis shown above is essentially
the same as a traditional sleeve bearing. Panasonic's unique HWB reduces the
