CFD showing the effect of a Zoo fan
These thermal images are from a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) showing the effects of Zoo Fans. They show a computer model of a 12.2 meter x 12.2 meter space with a 7.6 meter flat ceiling deck and a ceiling mounted heat source with a thermostat affixed 1.5 meters above the floor, set at 21°C.
The built-up heat at ceiling level is forced down when the ZOO Fan (represented by the white silhouette) is turned on.
Destratification results in a more even temperature throughout the Zone Of Occupancy. Creature comfort improves noticeably and energy consumption is reduced, often significantly.
