The operating principle of the blowers is pretty simple: a small wings equipped rotor rotates inside a stator.
Small vortexes of air created by the centrifugal force and the rotation are dragged by the vanes from the aspiration toward the drain. There are no parts in contact, thus the blowers do not require routine maintenance but, since the intake air is also used as cooling fluid, they can operate continuously only within certain ranges of pressure.
To prevent a damage of the engine it is indeed necessary to install vacuum and pressure limiting valves. This product is very versatile and is not particularly delicate. If used as a compressor, the output flow is clean and free of pulsations.
The main application fields include: pneumatic conveying, suction cups conveyors, purification or water oxygenation.
