Information of Pump for the Air Heater (Blower)

The following air pumps can be used for hot air heaters (air heaters).

Air compressors are generally used, but power saving is preferable considering running cost and CO2 emission reduction. Rotary blowers and electromagnetic blowers require only 1/5 to 1/10 of the power consumption of the air compressor and should be considered when applicable. Based on consultation, Fintech can help you to select a suitable pump.

△ CLH type can be selected depending on the conditions
X Insufficient pressure

Air compressor (reciprocating type, screw type, and scroll type)

Suitable for all Fintech hot air heaters.

Most factories and laboratories have piping (72.5 psi to 116.03 psi (500 to 800 kPa)) to supply air from compressors, which can be used easily, and this model can be used when small capacity air heaters are used. However, air pressure is higher than required, usability is good but running costs increase.

This is not recommended when a new air source dedicated to air heater is to be prepared. → The running cost is 5 to 10 times that of other methods. Also, equipment to remove oil and moisture (such as air dryers) is required.

Generally generates a high noise, but screw and scroll types are relatively silent.

Example of screw compressor
MEIJI AIR COMPRESSOR MFG.CO.,LTD. MAS4PKD
116.236 gal/min (440 L/min), 123.28 psi (850 kPa) 12624.92 Btu/hr (3.7 kW), 363.763 pounds (165 Kg)
Approximately 450,000 yen.
Built-in air dryer
Noise 53dB/m"

Rotary blower

Suitable for almost all Fintech hot air heaters.

This pump is made for large size septic tanks, can withstand continuous use, runs silently and has a long service life. Since the pressure is about 7.25psi (50 kPa), in most cases it can be used as air source for air heaters. There are many products in the range 39.62 to 79.25 gal/min (150 to 300 L/min) The cost is approximately 100,000 yen.

Many of the models use oil, and having an oil trap is preferred. Depending on usage conditions, water droplets may be generated, so an air dryer may be necessary in some cases. Since there are cases in which the pressure increases and the pump malfunctions when adjusting the flow rate using a valve. Therefore, the air flow rate to the air heater should be adjusted by discharging the air to the atmosphere. However, if possible, the rotation speed of the motor should be controlled by using an inverter.

Reference: Inverter recommended for rotary blower is Frenic-mini from Fuji Electric

Fuji Electric Frenic-mini

http://www.fujielectric.co.jp/fcs/jpn/new/frenic-mini/index.htm

If this device is used, 3 phase AC motor with general power supply (single phase 2 wire type AC 100 V or AC 200 V power supply) can be used, and it can be run at any rotation speed. In other words, the volume of air discharge from the rotary blower can be freely controlled to any flow rate.

According to Fintech experiments, adequate control was possible from 1 to 2 Hz, the rotation at that time was also smooth and sufficient torque was generated.

The air tank attached to the rotary blower is small, pulsation of the air pressure increases if the rotational speed is decreased. In such cases, pulsation can be reduced by providing a flow control valve and reducing the air flow appropriately (pump outlet pressure increases).
