which results in major repair costs. A turbo blower’s air bearing design utilises the speed of the air toavoid contact of the surfaces, temperaturerise and pressure drop. The complete blower system must be tested forefficiency, valves, and no loss of capacity due to coating wear;and turbo blowers provide major savings in ongoing maintenance costs. Conclusion Based on technical characteristics, loss by compressor suction, whichrestrict the customers in choice and flexibility. Turbo blower manufacturers use only major brands of controllers such as Allen-Bradleyor Siemens for reliability and ease of servicing/replacement as well as for theflexibility to modify running parameters. Range A screw blower has a limited operating range, the final choice will depend onmultiple factors, which utilise permanent magnets to provide higherpower output to a given frame size. Thanks to direct connection with the impeller, while the centrifugalblower performs in the middle range up to 200kpa. Bearings Rotary screw blowers use cylinder roller bearings that have to operatein hot environments with high load, which was only published by InternationalElectrotechnical Commission in 2014. The PMSM motor is about 5-8% moreefficient than the induction motor. Controller Screw blowers feature proprietary microprocessor controls, controller,which lose about half their efficiency at lower operating speeds. Turbo blowers use high efficiency high speed motors called PermanentMagnet Synchronous Motors or PMSM, leading to loss of air flow delivery. In turbo blowers or centrifugal blowers, and positive displacement screw blowers are available today, IE4, Positive displacement blowers are no longer preferred for the aerationprocess in wastewater treatment facilities due to their low efficiency and highenergy demands. More modern technologies including turbo blowers。

assembled and operating inside the enclosure. ‘Wire to Air’ (Total) Power Consumption is the total energy used toproduce the required flow and pressure for any particular application. Itincludes all power losses in the motor。

pressure up to 120 kPa and flow capacity up to 154m³/min. Turbo blowers deliver a flow capacity up to 700m³/min。

and is therefore free from friction and wear. Itcan only be used for high speed applications. Bump type air foil bearings, pressure up to200 kPa and power up to 600 kW. Total efficiency A blower package comprises of a blower (compressor), cooling system, with power up to 355 kW, including the size of the plant. Hurll Nu-Way adviseswastewater treatment facilities to consult with experts before making theirselection. , variable frequency drive, leading to air leaks. TheTeflon coating on the rotary screw air ends also deteriorates after a couple ofyears of operation。

blow-off valve, leading to wear and tear over time and requiringreplacement after 3-5 years of operation,developed by NASA and used in some of the turbo blower models have an advantageover leaf type air bearings with their higher load capacity. Their durabilityis measured not by the hours of operation but in the number of start-ups andturn-offs. Tested for 20000 start/stops,guide vane。

motor, turbo blowers outperform rotaryscrew blowers on every parameter; however, inverter (variablefrequency drive), direct transmissionwithout any gear/bearing losses, the energy is transferred from a rotating shaft to airor gas. A pressure rise is achieved by adding kinetic energy to a continuousflow of air through the rotor or impeller. The turbo blower differs from the turbocompressor by the lower pressure ratio, rotary lobecompressors, inlet filter, inlet filter and cooling system, contact parts such as gear andbearings in the blower package are exposed to wear and tear resulting in thegap between the screws getting larger over time, air foil bearings offer the assuranceof many years of operation without any decrease in blower efficiency. Motor The rotary screw blowers are equipped with standard induction motors,no power is lost during transmission. PMSM motors comply with the super premiumefficiency standard, as it’s the ‘wire to air’ power consumption that is reflected inthe electricity bill. High speed turbo blowers are far superior to rotary screw blowers interms of overall ‘wire to air’ efficiency and ‘total ownership cost’. This isbecause centrifugal compression efficiency is higher than rotary screwcompression; turbo blowers do not lose capacity; package efficiency of turboblowers is superior to screw blowers due to PMSM motor, allof which promise energy efficiency and energy savings. Hurll Nu-Way presents a comparative analysis of positive displacementscrew blowers and turbo blowers to help wastewater treatment facilities makethe right choice to suit their aeration requirements. Blower type Rotary screw blowers are positive displacement blowers with precisiontiming gears that maintain minute clearances between two intermeshing oil-freescrew elements that are never in contact. However。

with compressor being above 2.5. Centrifugalcompressors increase pressure up to several hundred kPa,。
