Pressure Blowers
These pressure blowers are used in a variety of process and environmental applications where low volumes and high pressures are required. They can be used for pneumatic conveying applications to carry grain and other dry bulk materials—including powder, plastic materials, wood waste, and paper trim—from a process to a collection point. This is useful in product transfer systems where additional cooling might be necessary. Accessories include silencers, inlet filters, and alloy construction.
