Hi

 

Which fan will be best for front intake fans with front mesh panel with dust filter?

 

Static pressure(SP) vs Airflow(AF) Series. As i saw plenty of videos where static pressure is best for front mesh panel fans for intake?

There is no guaranteed way to know in advance. As discussed earlier, the AF multiple thin blade provides more airflow with less noise, but requires a higher speed (more noise) to overcome resistance like dust filters. A "SP" or static pressure orientated fan with wider flat blades will offer better airflow at low speeds, but is definitely louder at high speeds.

 

If you know you will only run the fans at very low speeds, the SP type may work well. If you want to most possible airflow or do not have dust filters at that location, the AF may be optimal. Most people are better off with something in the middle.
