Gardner Denver Introduces CycloBlower VHX

Gardner Denver CycloBlower VHX

The new CycloBlower VHX is the next evolution in blower design. Gardner Denver introduced the world to the CycloBlower rotary screw technology in the 1950s, then reimagined it in 2015 with a patented 3x5 fixed rotor profile that improved efficiency, expanded the pressure capabilities up to 36 psig, and widened application of the technology.

Now, Gardner Denver leapfrogs its own helical crew rotor design to create the patent-pending variable helix 3x5 helical screw rotor profile in the CycloBlower VHX. It offers more efficient turndown capabilities across a wider range of flows and speeds when compared to other technologies. 

Available with three different discharge port options, the CycloBlower VHX optimizes efficiencies based on the pressures and performance of the application. It is built with high-quality components including a robust ductile iron shaft tested for strength, helical timing gears for smooth operation, Inpro/Seal oil seals for superior leak protection, and other premium parts all backed by an extensive warranty. 

The CycloBlower VHX design integrates a variable helix pitch to a patented screw rotor profile, increasing efficiency in generating faster internal compression, allowing for larger discharge porting that minimize air losses. In addition, it allows the achievement of energy savings up to 35% when compared to comparable sized technologies. The first model size of the series, available now, is the 100CDL300A with additional sizes to follow.
