Overview of Blowers and Pump Systems For Industrial Requirements
Blowers are mechanical devices generally used to induce gas flow over ducting where the flow needs to exhaust, cool, and ventilate the environment. Industrial blowers are commonly known as centrifugal blowers and they are an essential part of large ventilation systems and the processing industry. The blower comes with ceramic hybrid bearings, rotatable outlet discharge, easy to remove steel bearing assembly, and zinc-plated steel motor pulley. The blowers and fan belong to the same machine group and therefore works on the same principle; however, industrial blowers use the kinetic energy of the rotating blade to increase the pressure and operate at very high pressure compared to fans. Industrial blowers provide dry, clean, and oil-free air and also have low energy consumption. In addition, the blowers are cheaper and simpler in construction than axial flow fans. Industrial blowers are widely used in various industries including chemicals, automotive, cement, food & beverage, and mining as they are tough, reliable, and capable of functioning in a range of conditions.
One of the key factors driving the global industrial blowers market is rapid growth in the industrial sector. The increasing government spending on infrastructure and the manufacturing sector is anticipated to drive the industrial blowers market during the forecast period. Manufacturing industries in the Asia Pacific are projected to witness significant growth in the near future due to rapid urbanization, growing population, and favorable government plans for infrastructure and industry development in the region. Moreover, the food industry is expected to see significant growth due to increasing demand and consumption of food & beverages. However, the market is likely to be hampered on account of the high cost of production and servicing. Nevertheless, with rapid economic growth and government investments in infrastructure projects, manufacturing industries in the Middle East, Africa, and South America are expanding, thereby creating growth opportunities for manufacturers of industrial blowers in these regions.
The global industrial blowers market can be segmented based on type, end-use industry, and region. Based on type, the industrial blowers market can be classified into centrifugal blowers, positive displacement blowers, helical screw blowers, high-speed blowers, and regenerative blowers. Among all the types, centrifugal blowers are expected to dominate the industrial blowers market and grow at a fast pace as they are easily available and are cost effective. Some of the key players operating in the global industrial blowers market are Gardner Denver Inc., Hoffman & Lamson, SPX and others.
An industrial pump refers to a heavy-duty process pump that is used to move various types of products such as water, chemicals, petroleum, wastewater, oil, sludge, slurry, or food. There are mainly two types of industrial pumps used in different industrial verticals: centrifugal pumps and positive displacement pumps. Centrifugal pumps are extensively used as a result of its low cost, low maintenance, and longer lifespan. These pumps are used in high-flow, low head applications with low fluid viscosity. The positive displacement pumps are mainly used in low-flow, high head applications with high viscosity fluids and accurately controlled flow applications. Some of the leading players in the market include pumps from Nash, Gardner Denver, Hoffman & Lamson, Sutorbilt, and Roots among others.
The significant factors contributing to the growth of the global industrial pumps market include the accelerating demand for industrial pumps in chemicals and wastewater treatment, the increasing expenses on urbanization & infrastructural development in emerging economies, and the continuous technological advancements in industrial pumps. Additionally, the strong demand for industrial pumps from industries which equipped with advanced production facilities, followed by the increasing requirement of these pumps in chemicals and petrochemical industries will further surge the demand of the market over the coming years.
Industrial vacuum pump are used in a wide range of industries like packaging, bottling, drying, and degassing to name few. Vacuum pump technologies are considered either wet or dry, depending on whether or not the gas is exposed to oil or water during the compression process. Pumps which work by mechanically trapping a volume of gas and moving it through the pump are known as positive displacement pumps. Pumps which capture gas molecules on surfaces within the vacuum system are unsurprisingly known as, capture or entrapment pumps. The other pumps are centrifugal pumps, rotary claw vacuum pumps, liquid ring vacuum pumps and side channel blowers.
American Blower LLC provide services for any brand or manufacturer of pumps. Our services range from standard inspections and repairs to complete overhauls. A repair or overhaul of a pump generally consists of an inspection and repair/modification. American Blowers rebuilds all types of pumps and blowers to bring its operation back to OEM specifications. The technicians have been factory trained in the process of vacuum pump repair. After the repair or remanufacturing process is complete, each item is system tested to ensure proper operation, OEM specification verification, and extended operation under load and also with stocks of spares to support older or obsolete equipment which OEM no longer supports.
