SIDE CHANNEL COMPRESSORS

Side channel compressors (blowers)  have proven their reliability and longevity in service for many decades, performing flawlessly day in and day out with virtually no down time. Side channel blowers have lower noise pollution than most other pumps and compressors, allowing them to be used in sensitive areas like schools, living quarters, hospitals and production facilities. Most side channel blowers are maintenance-free and easy to transport, allowing them to be installed outside. Compressors built according to the ATEX directive are designed to be explosion-proof.

Advantages

  • low noise levels
  • virtually maintenance-free
  • reliable and built-to-last
  • robust yet light-weight
  • most models can be installed in any axial orientation
  • wide performance range
  • for use worldwide (UL/CSA/IEC/EN approval)
  • 50/60 Hz voltage range motors
  • ATEX
  • adjustable speed via external or integral converter

Operating Principle

Gas enters through the inlet port (D). The impeller in some pumps in mounted directly on the motor shaft for contact free operation thus furthermore increasing the pumps life span. As the gas enters the side channel (A), the rotating impeller (B) imparts velocity to the gas in the direction of rotation. Centrifugal force in the impeller blades (B) accelerates the gas outward and the pressure rises. Every rotation adds kinetic energy, resulting in further increase of pressure along the side channel. The side channel narrows at the rotor, sweeping the gas off the impeller blades and discharging it through the outlet port (C). Maximum operational reliability and service life, even at high differential pressures, is ensured by the arrangement of the bearings outside the compression chamber.
