Custom-Built Blower Packages Available

September 9, 2010
The blower packages are custom-built to address each customer’s requirements for elevation, temperature, noise reduction and application. The blower packages are available in two models: 15 psig and 8 psig. Intermediate-pressure (15 psig) blower packages are designed for semi-dense phase vacuum loading/pressure conveying and PD railcar/truck unloading. Low-pressure (8 psig) blowers and vacuum pumps are manufactured for dilute-phase conveying, silo and hopper aeration and air shoot conveying applications. Both models come standard with many important features that other manufacturers offer as options, including quality inlet filter with service indicator, premium inlet and exhaust silencers, 10-foot hot blower hose, safety pressure relief valve, and heavy-duty outlet check valve. All models are mounted on rigid channel iron frames designed to meet the customer’s application, and are available in three configurations – standard belt drive, jackshaft drive or direct drive.
