What is a Process Gas Blower?


A blower is a rotary, positive displacement type of machine used to move gases or mixture of gas. They can be with Two-lobe or Three-lobe rotors design.
Two parallel rotors with identical profiles rotate in the opposite direction in the blower housing. A set of timing gears keeps the rotors in synchronization. 
While rotors are spinning, gas is routed into the housing of the blower. This gas is trapped, transported and evacuated by rotation. There is no internal compression and no mechanical contact (no lubrication). Thus, the fluid carried remains free of oil and impurities.

We talk about a process blower when it is designed with specific seals, materials of construction, or special painting, Atex compliance.

Generally it is used in a complex process or particular conditions.

Hibon has been one of the leading industrial manufacturers of process gas blowers for more than 100 years. Numerous customers trust our expertise and reliable Positive Displacement Blowers on the Process market.

Benefits Of Positive Displacement Blowers

By their principle, it is a volumetric machine, offering numerous advantages and particularly for process duties:
• volumetric efficiency;
• constant massive flow (kg/h);
• oil-free conveying, 
• constant air flow, 
• robust, 
• without internal compression, 
• reliable and high performance, 
• simple operation, 
• widely used, 
• belt or direct coupling possibilities, 
• large volume of flow possible
• Cooled by ambient air
• Easy to start

Specific Seals

Seals are selected according to the applications. Their variety allows answering numerous applications on neutral gases, on aggressive or hazardous gases.
In case of neutral gases handled, the shaft seal of our gas blower will be relatively simple. Our blowers are equipped with lip seal, or improved sealing by one single mechanical seals. 
We consider neutral gases as biogas, nitrogen, argonhelium or hydrogen and any other non corrosive gas.
The main seals of the gas blowers could be available in different versions: 
piston ring seals for dry gas, hydrogen, or non corrosive nitrogen.
piston ring seals with flushing connection piston rings coupled with labyrinth seals.
lip seal coupled with labyrinth seals for wet gases

In case of aggressive or dangerous gases

The process gas positive displacement blowers will be totally different. This version of gas blowers guarantees 100% oil free gas even in the unlikely event of the sealing system failure. 
It is applicable to corrosive gases
The gas blower will be equipped with a lip seal at shaft end.
Main seals will be different according gases and gases mixture:
for gas mixture, Hibon may propose carbon rings,
for mixed gases including % of water, the gas blower could be equipped with liquid dual mechanical seal,
for dry mixed gas, a dry dual mechanical seal pressurized by nitrogen could be proposed on some process positive displacement blowers range SVH.

ATEX certification and compliance possibility

All the category 2 ATEX-compliant blowers have been specially developed to pump/compress a flammable atmosphere, classified as an internal zone 1 or 2, without needing to install protective devices such as flame guards.
The blowers have also been designed to function in an exterior flammable environment classified as zone 1 or 2. The blowers are certified (according to directive 94/9/CE) as category 2 or 3 equipment according to the European ATEX directive.
The blowers have been designed following the rules of safety construction, which ensure the elimination of potential sources of ignition, even if there are disturbances and frequent malfunctions.
The blowers are suitable for pumping/compressing a wide range of flammable gasses and vapors.
The temperature classification that applies to the category 2 or 3 ATEX-compliant blowers refers to the spontaneous combustion temperature of flammable materials that can be pumped/compressed, or that may be present in the external atmosphere.
