Positive Displacement Blowers & Vacuum Pumps

Positive Displacement Blowers and Vacuum Pumps

Positive displacement blowers are machines in which successive volumes of air or gas are confined within a closed space and elevated to a higher pressure. PD blowers are used to move air through a wide range of industrial applications such as chemical, agriculture, bulk transport and more. The term “positive displacement” comes from the fact that the volume of air doesn’t change within the blower but is displaced from one end to the other during operation. PD blowers simply trap and then discharge air to propel materials through pipe or hose which makes bulk transport a quicker and more efficient operation. The selection of positive displacement blowers built by Gardner Denver is varied and includes:

  • Straight bi-lobe blowers
  • Straight tri-lobe blowers
  • Twisted tri-lobe blowers
  • Helical screw blowers
  • Blower packages

Blower Packages: Blower Packages offer solutions to blower needs. Blower Packages include the blower, motor, inlet filter and silencer, belt guard, base, pressure relief valve, discharge silencer, and many possible options. Blower Packages simplify installation and enclosures cut down on noise levels. Best Aire offers 3 types of Gardner Denver blower packages.
