Abstract

An impeller is frequently used to induce air movement within an enclosed cavity for the purposes of component cooling and effluent removal. An inexpensive method of providing air movement is the attachment of an impeller mechanism to a rotating member or drive assembly, thereby, eliminating the need for a dedicated or double shaft motor to drive the cooling impeller.
