Industrial Blower

What is industrial blower?

An industrial air blower is essentially a blower. Its main function is to provide huge air/gas. The air/gas is used specifically for industrial use. Usually, an industrial blower is the combination of electric fans, wheels, and blades. They are used for driving airstream from one point to a given place. Due to different specifications, industrial blowers come into different designs. However, there are surely some features that they all co-share.

For customers, understanding the products before planning the working site is important. Since the price of the machine is usually very expensive, finding the most suitable one that fits their requirements is truly essential. Also, there is a variety of similar products on the market, sometimes it is hard to distinguish the minor difference among them. Here are some factors that make differences in industrial blowers, such as fan speed, air pressure, and intensity. Before making decisions, make sure that the key features and specifications of the industrial fans and blowers are well-informing. The following content is going to talk about the importance of having a set of fans and blowers for your working site. For more information, please continue to read the following passage.


Why is the use of industrial blower important?

During the industrial manufacturing process, continuous gas/air supply plays an important role. The use of an industrial blower guarantees the stability of supply. Combustion, ventilation, aeration, transportation of particles, air-cooling, air-cleaning, drying are all commonly seen functions that the fans and blowers of the device can provide. With it, the efficiency of manufacturing elevates.

Based on different specific functions, almost every industry can make good use of an industrial blower. Customers, from no matter agricultural, chemical, medical, oil and gas, mining, construction, and other industry, would find a variety of fans and blowers that best suit their requirements.


Types of industrial blowers

The industrial blowers are classified into two types. The classification is based on the direction of the airflow, including centrifugal blowers and axial blowers.

1. Centrifugal blowers

a. As the name shows, the main driving force comes from the centrifugal force. To generate that, the blowers apply a rotating disk with blades. When the blades are set at the right angle, the rotating disk starts to generate power to drive air/gas forward tangentially from the blade tips. As the air is compressed and sent to the ends of the blades, the speed of the driven air increases.
b. High pressure is generated as the fans are spinning. With the pressure, operations under extreme conditions become possible.
c. It applies direct drive, but not belt drive, of air, this makes the device significantly levitate the heavy duty of other machines since the efficiency is higher.
d. Since some blowers have to work in a confined space, this type of industrial blowers becomes a desirable option since it generates a substantial volume of air with very little vibration.
e. Some industrial devices that commonly apply centrifugal blowers: boiler fan, combustion blowers for furnace, rolling mill, dust collector, bag filter, suction blower, exhaust blower.
f. Since they are all explosion-proof, safety during use is secured.


2. Axial blowers

a. Axial blowers are also known as axial flow fans. If customers cannot find a desirable product, searching using the other name of axial blower to search may be a fine solution.
b. This type of blower applies axial forces to drive the air or gas. The device enables the movement of air, gas, or liquid by spinning a central hub with blades extending radially from its outer diameter.
c. The pressurizing mechanism is like the propeller. It pressurizes the air by the aerodynamic lift generated by the fan blades.
d. Without the need to run at high pressure, the blowers can generate high airflow. The advantage makes it more efficient in terms of energy use.
e. For customers, this type of industrial blower is relatively inexpensive. Also, the design of the device is compact and light.
f. Compared to centrifugal fans, axial fans have less rotating mass and are more compact.
g. They are mostly used for simple extraction applications, such as roof ventilation.
