Top questions to ask when buying a blower for a Pneumatic Conveying System

Posted by Karl Mueller on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 @ 04:01 PM
Are you ready to buy a blower for a pneumatic conveying system? Look out for the following:
  • Is the blower sized for the correct amount of air? Too much air will lead to higher pressure drops and increased power consumption. Too little air will result in line plugging.
  • Is the blower and motor sized with enough safety to overcome upset conditions?
  • When comparing blowers from various manufacturers, did you look at:
  • Reliability
  • Efficiency
  • Noise
  • Maintenance requirements
  • If you are conveying food products, you also want to make sure that no particles of the silencer absorption material and no lubrication oil can enter the compressed air stream and thus mix with the conveyed product.
