Regenerative blowers offer several performance benefits, making them a popular choice for moving air volumes up to approximately 1000 CFM at elevated pressures. They are robust, compact, lightweight, maintenance free, and offer efficient performance. What else? With quiet operation and good mechanical efficiencies for moving air, you will find them the most economical way to satisfy your application requirement when compared to positive displacement blowers. With these notable features, these blowers are chosen for applications in varied industrial sectors. Let us examine those industries that make use of the beneficial features of regenerative blowers.
Where are Regenerative Blowers Typically Used?
The following are the industries wherein regenerative blowers are commonly used.
- Industry: Manufacturing
Applications: Pneumatic conveying, vacuum transfer, scrap collection, batch processing, air bearing work stations, furnace combustion air, parts processing and packaging.
- Industry: Textile
Applications: Industrial sewing machine, automatic loom machines, and knitting machine thread and cutoff

There are several processes requiring low pressure air in industrial and commercial applications. To carry out these processes efficiently, regenerative blowers have become a widely used source for low pressure air. These blowers are common for small air volumes at higher pressures, which are beyond the performance range of centrifugal blowers. Regenerative blowers, unlike centrifugal blowers, operate on compressor laws as opposed to fan laws. Under compressor laws, increases in pressure or vacuum levels result in a higher workloads, and greater heat generation. As pressure or vacuum increases, the volumetric capacity of these blowers decreases. This is the opposite of centrifugal blowers operating on fan laws, where greater volumes increase the work load, and as pressure or vacuum levels increase, volume is reduced, and the work load and heat load are reduced. Therefore different precautions are required for the protection of regenerative blowers.

Air Power Products Limited has received the ISO 9001:2015 Certification in January 2018.
Cambridge, Ontario- February 27, 2018 – Air Power Products Limited, a leading manufacturer and distributor of lubricated and oil-less air compressors, vacuum systems, regenerative blowers, regenerative compressed air dryers and other associated products, has announced that it has achieved certification status under the ISO 9001:2015 standard, as of January 2018. The company had earned its first ISO 9001 certification in February 2001, under the ISO 9001-2000 standard.
The ISO 9001:2015 is a revision/upgrade to the ISO9001-2008 standard. This standard is devised by International Organization for Standardization, which is an association comprising several governmental and non-governmental organizations from across the globe. The ISO 9001:2015 standard enables businesses to materialize their quality commitments, and provide services and products that meet customer’s approval, and fulfill applicable regulatory and statutory requirements.

What are regenerative blowers? They are modern-day machines. Compact, and versatile, they are specially designed for moving a large volume of air, which is at low pressure.
Regenerative blowers provide an alternative means of compressing or evacuating small volumes of air at positive or negative pressures. They initially filled a performance void between centrifugal blowers and positive displacement (rotary lobe) blowers. With improvements over the years in pressure capabilities, they may now replace rotary lobe blowers in many applications, based on the many other benefits they offer.

In the previous post, we outlined some of the considerations for selecting either a reciprocating or rotary scroll air compressor. One of the major considerations will be the routine maintenance, which in turn will affect the “Cost of Ownership over a specified period of time”.
Maintaining Oil-less Air Compressors, Reciprocating and Rotary Scroll
Both reciprocating and oil-less air compressors require very little maintenance. The following items are basic requirements for either type of compressor.
- Air Intake Filter: It is a basic concept that in order to compress air, you must be able to intake air to the compression chamber. Air intake filters protect the compressor from ingesting contaminants that may cause cylinder and piston ring wear or damage, or cause intake and discharge valves to malfunction. As the filter becomes restricted by contaminants, the compressor will lose capacity. Depending on the cleanliness of the location, and the amount
