Our team at Pat’s Pump & Blower offers a wide range of industrial equipment, including a great selection of high-quality blowers. In this article, we will focus on waste water blowers and provide a few tips on how to select the right ones for your facility.

How to Select Waste Water Blowers

Consider the Size of Your Operation

When selecting waste water blowers, one important thing to keep in mind is the size of your operation. Some blowers are designed for small treatment plants, and others are designed for larger systems. For example, positive displacement blowers are usually best for small operations, while centrifugal blowers are better for medium and large-scale facilities. Our team has the right experience to help you select the best blowers for an operation of any scale, and we encourage you to reach out to us if you need advice.

Consider the Types of Blowers

Another key thing to think about when selecting waste water blowers is the different types of blowers and how they work. We mentioned two major types of blowers above, but here we will provide a more detailed explanation of their mechanisms to help you choose between them.

  • Positive Displacement Blowers – These blowers use pressurized gas or air to displace fluid. They can use either pistons or screws to create the pressure that sends the air through and moves the fluid where you want it to go.
  • Centrifugal Blowers – In contrast, centrifugal blowers use rotating fans to pull fluids from one side of the inlet to the other.
