and Development to achieve technological firsts within the industry.
What Makes Us Different
ISO Accredited Floating Room
Our sound testing room at our Fareham facility has been designed in a way that ensures none of its sides make direct contact with the existing building- it’s essentially ‘floating.’ This design prevents vibrations from other parts of the building from passing through the chamber, ensuring a perfect sound test every time.
Product endurance testing is another critical step in the product development process, providing assurance of quality, reliability, and durability. It ensures we meet industry standards, enhance our customer satisfaction, and reduce the risk of product failures by testing in real-world scenarios. We have facilities to test at elevated temperatures, and to carry out fatigue, vibration and resonance testing.
Two Research & Development Laboratories
Our laboratories are AMCA accredited for Airflow and Fan Sound Testing, compliant with BS EN ISO 5801 for airflow, and BS EN ISO 13347-2 and BS EN ISO 4136 for sound. Additionally, we have dedicated facilities for specific fan testing of Jet fans, adhering to BS EN ISO 13350 for Thrust. Our commitment to international standards and guidelines ensures that our test procedures consistently meet the highest quality standards.
We prioritise your satisfaction and confidence in our products, which is why witness testing is a crucial phase in the development process. This phase allows us to validate requirements and gain approvals, to deliver a product that meets or exceeds customer expectations.
What Goes into Creating a Fan
Our rolling machines are designed with a four roller system to reduce common ‘flat spots’ on circular rolled casings, which means consistent accuracy on casing diameters, coupled with a casing ejection system to handle even the largest and heaviest casings with ease.
Elta’s processes and procedures in welding are designed around a cardinal discipline to provide consistently straight welds on axial fan casings. Through automated welding procedures, equipment is designed to ensure casing joints achieve the required weld penetration, whilst eliminating potential flange splitting in subsequent manufacturing processes. All casings can be welded for specific requirements with a variety of casing thicknesses and diameter.
An integral aspect of the assembly process is to ensure correct balancing of impellers utilising high precision balancing machines. These machines are all balanced to JSO 14694, down to a balance level of G2.5 where appropriate, in either single or multi plane tolerances depending on design requirements. Testing is an important measure following assembly of products; our testing facilities and capabilities ensure that every product is tested to installation requirements prior to despatch.
Sound and Performance Testing
At Elta we take quality standards very seriously and test all of our products prior to despatch to ensure that meet these standards. To give our customers’ confidence in our products and services, we comply thoroughly with procedures to ensure design and implementation that meets the highest standards of quality within our industry.
We pride ourselves on providing exemplary customer service; our main ambition is to take care of you and your products each and every day. A big part of this service is providing an efficient despatch process that ensures your products arrive on time, in perfect condition on a date that suits you.
Across all of our people, in all of our businesses, on all continents on which we operate, Elta Group has one purpose: To enhance life through air.
For over 20 years we have been a proudly independent,
family-owned group, but our foundations were laid
over 50 years ago. Our foundations were built on an
entrepreneurial spirit and a clear vision of meeting
market needs and improving air quality.
