    Default Quietest generic compressor motor/fan

    Model Number: NONELISTED
    Brand: other
    Age: Less than 1 year

    I've got a couple commercial grade no-name bottle chillers that I'm using in a quieter area now. They're using pretty standard looking 5W condenser motors with fans that are 172mm across with a simple 4 pin fan hub. But they're too loud for my liking. I'd like to replace these with higher quality ball-bearing fans as I'm sure they're sleeve bearing as it starts. Is there a particular brand you'd recommend? All I can find easily are the generic Chinese junk, but I'd be very grateful for any other brand reco's I should be looking for. EBM Pabst seems to be the only brand I can easily turn up that's an actual "brand"

    To follow up I found Elco seems to be a good quality fan in my test. Papst also seems nice but less quiet.

    Hi Bob,

    I'm not familiar with commercial bottle chillers, hopefully another tech that works on these day in/day out can give you some input.
