Radial Blower PW

Construction

Constructed to withstand dusty, gritty, and particulate-carrying air at high pressures, Peerless' Radial Blower PW series is the definition of ‘industrial grade'.

Wheel

Heavy die cast aluminum, straight radial blade design that self-cleans during use, maintaining its balance and assuring efficient airflow even in particulate-heavy conditions.

Heavy-Duty Die Cast Aluminum.
Dynamically Factory Balanced.
​​Self-Cleaning Design.
High Efficiency.

Housing

All fan housings can be fully rotated to reposition the discharge at any of eight pre-drilled 45° intervals, allowing for a wide range of installation and ducting configurations.

45° Rotation Intervals.
Factory or Field Repositioning.
Housing Rotation Does Not Require Rebalancing.

Rotation

Standard clockwise wheel rotation, bottom horizontal discharge position. Other rotations and discharge orientations can be supplied upon request.

​​Clockwise Wheel Rotation Standard.
Optional Counter-Clockwise Wheel Rotation.

Frame

Indoor/outdoor, open-member steel frames keep motors, drivetrains, and wheels in alignment longer than formed sheet frames, resulting in longer maintenance intervals.

Fully-Welded Steel Frame.
Easy Maintenance Access.
Fewer Alignment Adjustments Needed.

Drive System

Direct drive, open ball bearing motors are fixed-mounted onto a welded base frame. No belt tensioning or bearing adjustments are necessary.

Factory-Set RPM Available.
