Operating Principle

How do side channel blowers work?

SAMOS side channel blowers transfer kinetic energy of a rotating impeller to the pumped medium and convert it into pressure. The impeller is mounted directly on the shaft of the motor. Together with the specially shaped housing it forms the side channel.

The pumped medium is suctioned in and compressed in the side channel. Single-stage side channel blowers discharge the pumped medium after one rotation. Two-stage versions convey it to the second stage after one rotation. Here, it is compressed again and discharged afterwards. This leads to higher differential pressures.

Side channel blowers can be used to generate both, vacuum and blast air.
