  • Bingo Blowers and the History of Bingo

    Whenever I hear the word Bingo I think of my Great Grandma playing at her nursing home. We called her Grandma M&Ms. I was never sure why back then but later found out it's because she used to wear an M&Ms costume every Halloween. When she played bingo they had a motor-driven bingo blower holding Ping-Pong balls with bingo numbers on it. The host would pull out a ball and set it were the contestants could see. Grandma M&Ms must have had some sick strategy she always came home with...

  • How Does a Blower Work?

    When I first started writing about blowers, it was a revelation to me that fluids like air move only from areas of high pressure to low pressure. To someone without a background in physics, fluid dynamics can be confusing and counter intuitive. But if you think about blowers and how they work, it can be helpful in understanding fluids and how they move around. Let's start with a very simple example. Hold out your left hand. Now, with your right hand, straighten your fingers and fan your right hand. You...

  • Direct Drive Blowers or Belt-Driven Blowers?

    Belt driven or direct drive? That is the blower construction question. What are the advantages of belt driven blowers over direct drive blowers, if any? Let's quickly review the difference. Direct drive blowers are blowers in which the motor that controls the rotation of fan blades is connected directly to the rotor shaft or fan axle. This means that the fan blades will spin at the same speed as the motor's rotation. A belt driven blower features a motor that is not directly connected to whatever equipment the fan's blades...

  • What are Blower Fans?

    There seem to be diverging accounts within industry about what constitutes a blower vs. what constitutes a fan. If there is a consensus to be found, it seems that blowers are often referred to as such when they are arranged in a centrifuge or when they are regenerative. On the other hand, fans tend to be called fans when they are arranged radially, feature visible blades and are used for comparatively lighter-duty purposes. But the term blower fans just messes up the whole arrangement. If you query Google's image search...

Industry Information

Blower Fans

Blower fans are air blowers that are used to move atmosphere. In industrial, commercial and consumer settings, there are many reasons for which air movement can be necessary. Any home or place of business needs ventilation. In industrial settings, the need for ventilation takes on extra dimensions of importance because of the risks to workplace safety and worker comfort that inadequate ventilation can pose.

Systems of ductwork, gratings and heaters or air conditioners all play important roles in ventilation and air temperature control. But in almost all of these systems, ventilation fans and other kinds of industrial blowers are necessary to move the air through the ductwork. Outside of temperature and air quality control contexts, blower fans are used in a great variety of applications. In the carpet cleaning industry, small, portable high velocity fans are used to speed up carpet drying after cleaning. In building maintenance contexts, blower fans are used to dry surfaces after spills. Blower fans can be permanently affixed to ceilings to serve decorative and light-duty air circulation purposes, or they can be small and portable enough to fit on a desktop or workbench.

Every variety of blower fan fits into one of two fan configuration categories. Axial fans feature blades that rotate around an axis like hands on a clock. Slight blade curvature allows for the creation of positive and negative air pressure in front of and behind the blades. These changes in air pressure cause airflow. Axial fans can be used in most of the settings in which blower fans are necessary. However, in some cases, axial configurations can be impractical or insufficient. In those cases, radial (or centrifugal) blowers are used. Radial blowers involve blades that spin around a fixed point within an enclosure (which is called annular housing), but their motion more resembles the forward-moving paddles on a water wheel than hands around a clock. They also cause changes in air pressure to generate airflow, but because the blades spin within annular housing, the moving air becomes subject to centrifugal motion, which increased air velocity. Because of the effect of centrifugal motion, radial blowers can, when operating at the same RPM as axial blowers, generate more airflow. Also, all centrifugal blowers direct their airflow through a chute. For this reason, radial blowers are the most effective variety of blower fan in floor drying applications and in other settings where airflow must be directed carefully.
