Lubricate An Electric Squirrel Caged Ceiling Fan

Vintage Caged Ceiling Fan

Caged ceiling fan – There are different types of fans. The most common are centrifugal (also known as radial or short-circuit), mixed flow, transverse flow, axial and propeller fans.

Centrifugal

The short-lived fan looks like a hamster exercise wheel or a water wheel with blades that are connected to a center hub. It is called centrifugal, which means thrown away from the center because the air enters the center of the hub, flows across the blades and spins out of the hub. Caged ceiling fan have different wheels. The F wheel has the curve forward blade and the T-wheel has straight radial shovels. Curved rear leaf is on the B-wheel and straight back the blades are on the P-wheel.

Blade Air Flow

Caged ceiling fan leaves have different airflow outputs. Radial fans (otherwise known as burling fans because of their hamster wheel like appearance) are powerful exhaust air fans used to control air pollution and are common in central cooling systems. Proper maintenance of these fans is necessary because of how many internal blades they use. An easy way to keep your fan is by lubricating it sometimes.

Switch off the fan and disconnect it from the wall outlet to which it is connected. Use your screwdriver to remove all screws around the housing of the fan. Take the case of the cover to expose the fan blades inside. Use a dust cleaner or cloth to remove any excess dust from the blades. This will see the lubricant will not be blocked. Use an industrial non-greasy lubricant such as WD-40 to coat the blades on the fan properly. Also, be sure to coat the hinges around the fan. Replace the fan housing and plug in the fan.
