- High speed turbo
- Blower Packages
Applications for Hoffman & Lamson centrifugal blowers include:
- Industrial processing – centrifugal blowers provide air or gas for sulfur recovery, combustion air, process gas boosting, coal mine venting, fluidized bed combustion systems, vapor and gas extraction, landfill gas, composting, sludge incineration, CO2 compression, air knives and printing systems.
- Engineered vacuum systems (EVS) – centrifugal blowers are used as an exhauster to pick up, convey and capture a myriad of materials ranging from aluminum granules to corn flakes.
- Other air handling applications
What is the difference between a Centrifugal Blower and Exhauster?
Blowers and exhausters circulate air or gas but the process of circulation is different.
- Exhausters are the heart of vacuum systems.
- Blowers channel air or gas in a specific direction.
Exhausters are designed to provide continuous flow and pulse-free air while delivering quiet and clean vacuum. These units are practically maintenance free with only one moving part and no timing gears. Bearings require only occasional greasing and the shaft seals are non- contacting and non-wearing.
A blower is a low pressure, high volume compressor. Blowers are applied to systems that require the machine to provide positive pressure. These units take ambient air or gas from supply and compress the air or gas to produce the required result.
