SPAL’s range of Sealed Brushless motors (12V: 300W - 500W, 24V: 300W - 850W) applied to our axial fans and centrifugal blowers are ideal
for engine and oil cooling, HVAC and auxiliary cooling applications. In addition, a 40W (12V & 24V) SBL motor was recently introduced into the marketplace. Developed and designed with cutting edge technology, high energy ferrite magnets (rare earth magnets available upon request), and a state-of-the-art sine wave sensorless drive, our SBL motors reach an impressive 82%+ electrical efficiency, placing them among the most efficient motors available.

This is further enhanced by the use of dedicated high-performance fan designs that optimize fluid dynamic performance. The result is high air-side performance at minimum electrical load.  SBL motors are fully sealed to be IP68 and IP6K9K compliant, and can operate in the presence of many aggressive or hazardous substances making them ideal for high debris environments.

SPAL SBL motors feature integrated power and control electronics are completely separated within the motor to ensure the control electronics operate at lower surface temperature levels.  The result increases durability and overall product reliability. SBL motors include double-sealed ball bearings, guaranteeing an impressive product life of 30,000 hours and up (product life varies based on working conditions).

SPAL USA, the North American subsidiary of SPAL Automotive Srl, has been providing products
from Italy since 1989. The company’s sales and distribution center is housed in a 40,000-square-foot facility in Ankeny, Iowa.  From this location, SPAL USA provides value-added systems,components
and support for OEM and aftermarket applications.

SPAL AUTOMOTIVE is a world leader in the design and manufacturer of high quality electric fans
and blowers for all types of vehicles and equipment.  Founded in Italy in 1959, we initially specialized
in plastic mold design and production. We have been designing, producing and marketing for over
30 years high performance axial fans and centrifugal blowers for cars, buses, off-road vehicles, construction machineries, agricultural tractors, trucks, powersports and industrial equipment.

The SPAL production facility in Correggio, Italy, currently covers a total production area of 538,000+ square feet, accommodates over 500 employees and houses the engineering, research & development, and manufacturing departments. We have six automated production lines, which have the capability
to produce over 3 million fans and blowers annually.

We hold TS16949 and ISO 9001 certifications. They specify the quality system requirements for design, development, production and when relevant, installation and servicing. In addition, our Environmental Management System is certified to UNI EN ISO14001:2004, and also meets the European Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles (ELV).

Our goal is to build high quality products for the market. We achieve it by continuing focusing on research & development and by supervising all areas of manufacturing process for both Brush and Brushless Axial Fans and Centrifugal Blowers, 12V and 24V.


"We have always set the highest standards.  We are convinced that quality, innovation and service have been, are, and always will be the main cornerstones of our history and culture. Using these cornerstones,

SPAL has established its credibility over the years, presenting itself as an ideal partner for designing, manufacturing, marketing engine bay cooling and vehicle cab ventilation solutions for all means of transport. SPAL also manufactures a broad range of car accessories, aimed at optimizing vehicle comfort and, above all, upgrading safety."
