Titan TFD-12025SL12S

The second fan from Titan is an entry-level model (TFD-12025SL12S) that is shipped in a plain cardboard box.

Besides the fan, the box only contains mounting screws because this is the cheapest product in this review. You can buy it for less than $3. Of course, it is manufactured in China.

The fan looks quite a well-made thing, though.

 

The black frame and the black impeller are connected with three 3-millimeters-wide spokes and one 8-millimeter spoke with a 3-wire cable. The 7-blade impeller is 110 millimeters and the rotor is 42 millimeters in diameter.

The fan’s blades are narrow at the base and expand towards the ends. They are placed wide apart from each other, have a sharp front edge and a distinctly defined angle of attack.

The rotation speed of this model shouldn’t be higher than 1400 RPM. Its airflow and noise level are specified to be 53.4 CFM and 28.3 dBA, respectively. The static pressure of the fan is 1.778 millimeters of water. I can also add that Titan’s entry-level fan series includes six models within a speed range of 1400 to 2900 RPM.

The sleeve bearing of the Titan TFD-12025SL12S is expected to serve for 30,000 hours. The sticker on the rotor tells you the fan’s model name, voltage and current.

In my tests the fan had a power draw of 0.88 watts and a start-up voltage of 7.8 volts. Its 3-wore cable is 390 millimeters long.

Let’s see if this very cheap model from Titan can surprise us with anything:

Well, the Titan TFD-12025SL12S is a good illustration of what a cheap fan is. Besides being noisy by itself, the fan has a poorly balanced impeller which is producing all manner of unwanted sounds in varying tonalities. The air flow is weak. That’s the best you can buy for $3, actually.
