If you don’t mind doing a certain amount of work, save money assembling your own blower package. This also gives you the option of using a motor or blower that is already in your shop. We’ll make it easy.
Our unit consists of the basic stand (A), a built-in discharge silencer (B) and the belt guard (C). Two flex connectors are also furnished with the base. We have specified premium built-in discharge silencers on our stock bases because they cover a wider range of frequencies than standard models and are best-suited for today’s higher blower speeds.
The belt guards accommodate virtually every size V-drive used by each blower/base combination. To make provision for the shafts, cut out slots in the guard’s wire grid to accommodate the blower and motor shafts.
Every blower should have a filter/silencer (D) for protection against dust. One paper filter element is included with each housing.
For maximum sound reduction, you can purchase an inlet silencer (E). The right angle in/out style pictured here requires a support arm (F) which is included with the silencer. The support arm has a vertical adjustment range of 10 to 13" depending on the size to accommodate different blower configurations.
Note: Pressure losses through blower silencers can run from 2 to 10" of H2O depending on the blower size and its operating cfm. Call, or better yet, fax us with the basics of your operation and we’ll get the right equipment specified and shipped to your plant.
