Hartzell Fan Inc.Industrial Exhausters
Series 05 industrial exhausters are available with multiple wheel types and configurations to meet specific needs. The Type AH air wheel performs well for light dust loading, the Type MH open wheel is ideally suited for material handling, the Type TH open trim wheel for trim handling and long materials, the Type PR reinforced paddle wheel for handling particle laden air, and the Type PW open paddle wheel for many air and material moving applications. It is also available in a flange mount version for vertical mounting directly to a dust collector. Series 05 fans also offer efficient airflow at high pressure to flow ratios with lower sound levels than many other selections. The fans are available in sizes from 12 to 57 in. in Class II, III, or IV and some high-temp applications. Hartzell Fan Inc., Piqua, OH 800-336-3267 www.hartzellfan.com

Eurus BlowerReplacement Blowers
ZZ Series blowers are drop-in replacements for Roots URAI, Sutorbilt Legend, and Tuthill Competitor models. These blowers feature balanced/precision-machined bi-lobed impellers, ground alloy steel shafts with oversized bearings, alloy steel forged spur gears that are hardened and precision machined, an oil-lubricated gear side and grease lubricated drive side, keyless locking assemblies for reliable and easier timing gear maintenance, and either NPT or ANSI flanged port connections. The blowers come in sizes 2 thru 7 in. and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically. They will provide pressures up to 15 psig or vacuums of 15 in. Hg; air flow ranges from 10 to 2350 cfm.

Dynamic Air Inc.Vacuum Blower Package
The Series 457 Model 279 Quiet-Pac blower package is a vacuum blower package complete with both intake and discharge silencer for sound attenuation. This particular unit is capable of 2033 ACFM @ 12.5 in. of mercury vacuum. Completely assembled, it includes a vacuum relief valve, blower, motor, and V-belt drive. All preassembled blower packages are custom designed using a standard design platform and include either vacuum, pressure, or a combination of vacuum and pressure available in any size required to suit a particular application. Also available are optional blower packages with reduced sound levels to 85 DBA and lower. Dynamic Air Inc., St. Paul, MN 651-484-2900 www.dynamicair.com

HSIHigh-Speed Turbo Blowers
HT-Series blowers are built to increase annual energy savings and minimize maintenance. The Air Bearing High-Speed Turbo blower has over 45 performance configurations ranging from 5–300HP and more under development. The operational benefits of using a HT series can result in 20-40 percent reduced energy cost. Additional benefits include less maintenance costs, i.e. no lubrication, no belts, no gears, and no couplings, with the only scheduled maintenance being routine inlet filter changes. Theses blowers are quiet with less than 85 dBA per OSHA standards. In addition, the HT series can operate in parallel with other type blowers with a smaller footprint than traditional blowers. HT blowers are shipped as a pre-engineered working system with integrated controls, variable frequency drive, filter inlet, and electrical disconnect to keep installation costs at minimum.

Atlas Copco Compressors LLCScrew Blowers
This line of ZS screw blowers help cut facility energy costs by 30 percent when compared to conventional lobe blower technology. The technology employed with the new screw blowers mirrors the same principles used in a rotary screw air compressor: paired male and female rotors trap and then squeeze air between them. Air is progressively and consistently compressed internally during each rotation. Atlas Copco Compressors LLC, Rock Hill, SC 800-232-3234 www.atlascopco.us

Tuthill Vacuum & Blower SystemsBlower Packages
This line of blower packages, including PneuPak, PneuMax, and now Qube, has been used as low-pressure air sources for many industrial applications —particularly pneumatic conveying. Qube 400, the newest addition to the line, includes a patent-pending noise reduction system on the Qx blower, removing the need for a silencer. It has a small footprint for the flow and highest available pressure — up to 18 PSIG. Custom-engineered blower packages are available to meet specific requirements. Tuthill Vacuum & Blower Systems, Springfield, MO 800-825-6937 www.tuthill.com

FPZ Inc.Conveyor/Dryer Blowers
TS/TD series blowers feature a patented twin impeller design. TS blowers have two impellers connected in parallel and produce airflows over 1250 cfm, pressures to 5.4 psig, or vacuums to 10.3 in. Hg. TD blowers have two impellers connected in series and produce airflows over 640 cfm, pressures to 8.6 psig, or vacuums to 14 in. Hg. TS models feature optional mounting ports for maximum installation flexibility. All blowers are backed by a three-year warranty. FPZ Inc., Saukville, WI 262-268-0180 www.fpz.com

AirlancoHeavy-Duty Industrial Fans
Rugged LS industrial fans handle heavy-duty dust loads or coarse materials safely and efficiently. The tough radial blade is available in carbon or stainless steel construction and enables the heavy-duty LS fans to be used in extreme material handling applications. Shafts are turned, precision-ground, and polished from carbon or stainless steel stock. The V-belt drive allows fine-tuning fan speed and cfm by changing pulleys and belts. Airflow can be adjusted without changing fan speeds by using optional inlet and outlet dampers, while optional exhaust stacks elevate air discharge to the exterior of rooms and buildings. Access doors and pipe-tap drains facilitate cleaning and draining of the fan housings. Airlanco, Falls City, NE 800-500-9777 www.airlanco.com

Cyclonaire Corp.Blower Packages
These blower packages are custom-built to elevation, temperature, noise reduction, and application requirements. They are available in 15- and 8-psig models. 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: quality inlet filter with service indicator; premium inlet and exhaust silencers; 10-ft 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, jack shaft drive, or direct drive.

Kice Industries Inc.Heavy-Duty Blower
The PD blower was developed in response to operator demands for a heavy-duty blower capable of running at low speeds and at cooler temperatures. This blower offers larger oil sumps and rotors that reduce slip. Also by using piston ring seals there is no need for oil breathers, which translates to a much cleaner operation. The PD blower features oversized shaft and bearings that increase capacity of torsional load. This gives the blower better durability and allows for higher belt tension. The blower is available in 2-, 2.5-, 3-, 4-, and 6-in. sizes. Kice Industries Inc., Wichita, KS  316-744-7151 www.kice.com
