Vane axial fan (upstream guide vanes — USGV)

This is an axial fan with guide vanes upstream of the impeller. Pre-rotation of the air in the opposite direction to the impeller ro­tation means that lift forces, and hence the fan pressure are in­creased. The impeller removing the swirl pressure develop­ment can be higher than the corresponding DSGV fan albeit with a narrowing of the flow range. (See Figures 1.82 and 1.83).
