A pressure blower is a centrifugal fan designed such that the air enters the fan inlet, is forced around the inside of the housing, and exits at a 90 degree angle from how it entered the fan. Most pressure blowers have a straight blade radial wheel, but some are available with a backward curved or shrouded wheel, depending on the application. Americraft pressure blower wheels are cast aluminum, and with the exception of a couple of sizes, are straight radial wheels. This means that the blades are at a 90 degree angle to the backplate of the wheel. Pressure blowers are used when the application requires a small to medium amount of CFM at higher static pressures than an axial fan is capable of producing, up to 11-12” S.P. water gage for our blowers. Pressure blowers consume horsepower the opposite of axial fans as the higher the static pressure, the less horsepower is consumed by a blower.
