with backward-curved blades


Explanation:
from the ref site:

Three basic types are commonly designated as : (i) forward curved (ii) radial blade, and (iii) backward curved blade.

In the backward curved type, the blades are inclined away from the direction of motion. Among these three types the backward curved blade centrifugal fans are most widely used because they have the lowest power consumption for equal airflow and less noise while running.
