Electric leaf blowers are leaf cleaning devices that are driven by centrifugal fans by the supply of electric power source. Leaf blower is a very efficient way for leaf cleaning compared with other measures such as vacuum cleaning, sweepers, brooms, and other tools since the blowing wind is concentrated by the leaf blowers with the centrifugal method and the targeted leafs could be well managed by the electric blowers.
In public areas, especially in parks, schools, parking lots, and many other public facilities where there are a lot of leafs and relevant natural wastes, the usage of electric leaf blowers is a very common measure adopted by cleaning staffs due to their productive working efficiency. Janitors with electric leaf blowers know how to deal with the environment and the machine structure of the leaf blowers is also comparatively easy to use.
Electric leaf blowers are considers a type of blowers. A blower is a centrifugal fan, which is a mechanical device for moving air in a direction at an angle to the incoming fluid. Centrifugal fans would often contain a ducted housing to direct outgoing air in a special direction or across a heat sink. This type of fan is also called a blower fan, or squirrel cage fan. These fans increase the speed and volume of an air stream with the rotating impellers as the prerequisite elements.
Besides the impellers, blower fans of leaf blowers are also important, which utilize the kinetic energy of the impellers to increase the volume of the air stream. This in turn moves against the resistance caused by the ducts, dampers and other components as well. Blower fans displace air in radial direction, and change the direction by 90° of the airflow. This kind of stuff shall be sturdy, quiet, reliable, and capable of operating over a wide range of conditions. During the operation, blower fans are constant displacement or constant-volume devices. Therefore, at a constant fan speed, a blower fan moves a relatively constant volume of air rather than constant mass substances. This indicates that the air velocity in a system is fixed even if the mass flow rate through the fan is not. Because blower fans are not positive displacement devices, so the blower fans have certain advantages and disadvantages.
These kinds of things happen when blower fans are contrasted with positive displacement blowers. Since centrifugal fans are more efficient, whereas positive displacement blowers may have a lower capital cost to the buyers. So when purchasers are making their decision, they will have to estimate the projects and the expense costs.
Drum shapes are the most common designs in among the electric leaf blower designs. This is composed of a number of fan blades mounted around a hub of the device. And the hub turns on a driveshaft mounted in bearings in the fan housing. During the fan operation, the gas enters from the side of the fan wheel, and then it turns 90 degrees and accelerates. The acceleration is caused due to centrifugal force because it flows over the fan blades and exits the fan housing, so the leaf blowers can work very efficient. Here the drum shapes and the fan housing a two key components and terms in the blower fan design. Only with well profiled outer shapes, can the operation of leaf blowers be achieved. The essential parts of leaf blowers’ fans are often five. They are fan housing, impellers, inlet and outlet ducts, drive shaft, and drive mechanism. These five main parts make the leaf blower fans and make the leaf blower operation feasible. Aside from these five key components, there are bearings, couplings, impeller locking device, fan discharge casing, shaft seal plates, and other smaller parts.
Now, we will discuss about the bearing unit of the leaf blowers. Bearings are an important part of a fan in all kinds of variants. Sleeve ring oil bearings are used extensively in fans. The drive mechanism of leaf blowers’ fans determines the speed of the fan wheel, and the extent to which this speed can be different case by case. While these parameters and variables are all subjects discussed here as the elements, the real composition and adjustment of the leaf blowers are to be determined by experts and suppliers, since the demands for leaf blowers vary and there is no standard questions towards specific users, rather, every leaf blower need to be matched with their users under the right circumstances. The design and development of leaf blowers is rather simple, but the way how to apply those leaf blowers to the right environment for cleaning purpose is another issue.
