Evaporators in supermarkets have to meet especially high hygiene standards. The ideal solution is our compact AxiCool fan unit. In addition to its high energy efficiency and reliability, it is full of innovative details for optimum food safety such as side hinges for better cleaning or an air-guiding system that ensures high air throw and ideal distribution of cold air.


ebm-papst fans for condensers provide high cooling performance with low noise levels and minimal energy consumption. The fans can also be fitted with the AxiTop diffuser and the FlowGrid air inlet grille; in combination with operation at partial load, these can reduce noise and energy consumption even further - a particular benefit when in the vicinity of residential areas.

Chiller Cabinets

Many chiller cabinets still work with conventional shaded-pole motors, using up a lot of energy. Our energy-saving motors (ESM) have an efficiency of over 70% and need only around a tenth of the power. Our iQ motors are also based on the highly efficient GreenTech EC technology - and they're very smart aswell. Depending on requirements, they can be equipped with various additional functionality such as two preprogrammed speed settings for day and night operation. Replacement is easy since they have the same dimensions as the existing Q motors.

Air Curtains

Air curtains are designed to prevent cold air in areas such as cold stores from mixing with the warm air in adjoining areas. They use powerful tangential and centrifugal fans with GreenTech EC technology and motors that are extremely efficient and virtually silent.

Centralised/Decentralised Air Conditioning

We offer the RadiPac and RadiFit centrifugal fan series as compact system solutions for centralised and decentralised air conditioning in supermarkets. These smoothly adjustable fans allow exact adjustment of the air flow. Both systems feature easy plug-and-play connection, making them ideally suited to retrofitting of existing systems. In addition, the impeller, motor and electronics are already perfectly matched in the RadiPac's practical cubic design.

Check-out Conveyors

Our compact external rotor motors are the ideal choice for check-out conveyors with their integrated K4 control electronics for speed, positioning and torque control. They feature high performance and breakaway torque in a small package with long service life and high reliability.


Working at high temperatures is always a major challenge for fans. For use in the high ambient temperatures typical of ovens, ebm-papst has developed a special series of fans that is extremely rugged, reliable and energy-efficient.
