The vacuum/pressure blower package is part of K-Tron’s single blower rail unload system. One blower powers both the vacuum and the pressure componenets of the system, minimizing cost, and is ideal for applications where the vacuum component is a short distance.
The blower conveys powder, pellet and granular material from railcars to storage tanks at rates up to 18,140 kg/hr [40,000 lbs/hr]. Pre-designed packages range from a 76 mm [3 in] to a 127 mm [5 in] conveying line.
Every blower package incorporates an industry-proven positive displacement blower. The blower is dynamically balanced, and isolation pads are positioned between the blower and the base to reduce vibration and noise. The blower package is also supported by a heavy-duty base that allows easy access for service and cleaning. An adjustable motor mount accommodates any motor with a NEMA bolt pattern. A heavy-duty OSHA drive guard totally encloses the drive to protect plant personnel.
Motors for explosion-proof applications or special voltage requirements, and other special options are available to tailor our blowers to your specific application.
