The radial blade fan wheel in an industrial pressure blower helps move material-laden air at medium to high static pressures and stays clean in the process. That includes everything from light particles to heavier materials that can be sticky or abrasive, without compromising the fan wheel integrity.
How the Radial Blade Pressure Blower Works
The straight radial blades are positioned at 90 degree angles to the outside surface of the wheel hub. The way the blades are situated keeps them free of debris as the air and materials flow through the airstream. Often made with heavy-duty or reinforced materials, they are great for “dirty” applications with higher static pressures.
The pressure blower is available in two models, Open Radial and Shrouded Radial. They are both heavy-duty. The shrouded model offers additional efficiencies. The density of the materials in the airflow will help determine which model is optimal as well as the remaining characteristics, including drives, features, and accessories.
Other radial fan options are available in addition to the high pressure blowers. See our Radial Fans for Material Handling Product Page for performance and design specifications along with other details.
