Side Channel Blowers
Principle of Operation
Side channel blowers work according to the impulse principle. This means that kinetic energy from a rotating impeller is transferred to the pumping medium and converted into pressure. The impeller is mounted directly on the shaft of the motor and, together with the specially shaped housing, forms the side channel.
The pumping medium is sucked in, compressed in the side channel and conveyed to the second stage after one rotation. Here, it is compressed again before being discharged. This way a side channel blower can be used to generate both vacuum and blast air. The motor rated power determines the maximum differential pressure of the blower. The two silencers fitted to the inlet and discharge sides ensure quiet operation.
