High Pressure Fans for High Static Pressure
When dealing with high static pressure, it is a safe bet to use High Pressure Fans (you will find the term used interchangeably with High Pressure Centrifugal Blowers). They primarily move clean air, but they also have the capability to move some material-laden air.
Our High Pressure Fan designs are considered heavy-duty, high quality, durable equipment. AirPro constructs them using fully welded material, which provides a higher quality product compared to riveted construction.
The combination of air volume and static pressure is an essential consideration when purchasing a high pressure fan. However, there is one small difference between the models – the wheel design
Types of High Pressure Fans
The two main options are High Pressure Radial Open (HPRL/HPRM), or High Pressure Radial Shrouded (HPSL/HPSM).
Both versions of the High Pressure Blower – the Radial Open and the Radial Shrouded – handle low-to-medium air volumes at high static pressures. With its surgeless design, this high pressure fan provides consistent performance through variable air flow at or near constant pressure.
In addition, both versions are available with two different wheel types. The most appropriate wheel design is based on the volume and pressure combination of the air, along with the desired operating efficiency of the high pressure blower.
High Pressure Fan Performance & Design Specs
Product Description: Radial Open High Pressure Blower: HPRL / HPRM
HPRL – A high pressure centrifugal blower designed with an open radial wheel. Engineered for low air volumes at high static pressures. The open radial wheel does involve decreased operating efficiency when compared to the shrouded wheel but covers a wider range of air volume and pressure combinations.
HPRM – An open radial wheel high pressure blower similar to the HPRL but with a wider wheel design. The increased wheel width increases the air volume capacity, which increases the efficiency of the high pressure blowers.
Product Description: Radial Shrouded High Pressure Blower: HPSL / HPSM
HPSL – A high pressure centrifugal blower featuring a shrouded wheel design. This wheel type is designed to move low volumes of air at high static pressures with high operating efficiencies.
HPSM – A high pressure industrial blower also featuring the shrouded wheel design. With increased wheel width, this model is designed for low-to-medium air volumes at high pressures.
