Votron Airpower Centrifugal Blower

Vortron’s AirPower™ line of compact centrifugal blowers promises to raise the bar for industrial blower performance. Flow and pressure not attainable with competitive single stage products are now easily achieved. Three models are available: the flagship Z40e, the ultra efficient X40, and the scrappy J70. Each are specialists in their own right and are aerodynamically optimized for meeting specific flow and pressure requirements. All are clean sheet designs developed from the ground up to deliver best performance, best durability, and best efficiency available anywhere today. With peak isentropic efficiencies reaching 80%, no other compact blower product even comes close.
Vortron Airpower Air Knife

Vortron, providing total engineered solutions to your air movement and drying needs, can design complete air knife systems for a wide range of manufacturing applications. Air Superiority Air Knives are engineered to provide a highly concentrated laminar flow that exits the air knife nozzle as an uninterrupted continuous air curtain with a well controlled pattern. As an alternative to ineffective, low velocity, and/or low flow air blow off systems, Air Superiority Air Knife Systems provide an optimized balance of air velocity and mass flow. This balance is required for effective and efficient performance in applications such as continuous coating control, cooling (air quench) and debris removal, as well as air drying and many others.

Process Air Solutions is pleased to announce the introduction of a new low pressure, non-contact, blow offProcess Air Solutions Round Air Knife Blow Off Fixture fixture. We are patent pending on a stainless steel fixture that can be setup for air cooling or liquid removal on continuous production applications. 

The “Process Air Round Knife Blow Off Fixture” is unique in several areas:

Target. This item is designed to be used with our Vortron single stage centrifugal blower. Industrial water removal processes are presently being accomplished with several types of systems using 40 PSIG regulated pressures from the 100-125 PSIG plant compressed air supply. We can match and improve the process, usually with required operating pressures below 3 PSIG. This creates a huge reduction in process utility costs.  This fixture provides a 360° converging point air impact pattern. We can change the air delivery angles to best accomplish product cooling or water removal.

Flexibility. We design and supply the correct fixture for each operation. We have different air impact patterns with interchangeable fixture caps. The fixture can be used at operating pressures up to 15 PSIG. We can adjust the gap range from .010” to .350” to ensure the lowest required pressure and the least number of fixtures.

Zero Maintenance. The fixture is stainless steel. Water removal occurs in front of our fixture before that section of the cable or tubing enters the fixture bore. We do not buildup water mineral deposits that must be wired brushed to maintain fixture performance. The fixture is totally non-contact. If there is a coating flaw or lump it passes through the fixture bore without incident. The fixture doesn’t break open and hope to relatch in order to restore the blow off function. This fixture will never wear out or need to be replaced.

Quiet Enclosures. We can supply stainless steel containment enclosures to collect and drain the fluids removed from the product. Our enclosures have provisions for vent air mufflers lower the operating noise levels of the process. We can supply multiple blow-off fixtures in a single containment enclosure.


Upgrade Your Compressed Air Blow Off System for Energy Savings

Are you considering upgrading your existing compressed air blow off system? Need more power or shorter cycle times? High efficiency centrifugal blowers can provide energy savings as well as a performance upgrade to your existing compressed air blow-off system for substantially less than your current system’s operating costs.  See the details here. 


A Closer look at Compressed Air Blow Off Claims

The makers of "Super" air knife products and other high pressure "air bar" manufacturers have recently invested significant effort in publicizing the relative merits of their products. With advertisements that apparently cite case studies, readers are often led to believe that actual systems were set up, critically evaluated, and proven to be “just as efficient” in drying, blow off, and cooling applications - the applications where high-efficiency centrifugal blowers can easily outperform a high pressure air bar system, at much lower cost.  See the details here.
