Ogura Industrial Corp. is offering customers’ new versions of their TX Series Wankel based rotary positive displacement blowers. The new models are derived from the company’s production Automotive and Marine duty Air Blowers or Superchargers. These new blowers are designed to be driven by Electric motors for use in both Industrial and Mobile applications.
These new designs allow users to directly couple an Electric motor to the blowers input shaft. This close coupling of the motor to the blower allows for a small package and the ability to have full boost regardless of engine RPM. Which makes them ideal for Industrial furnaces, Floating passenger trains, Diesel Emission controls and Fuel Cells, just to name a few.
Stock designs from 400 cc’s per revolution (leaf Model TX04) to 2,800 cc’s per revolution (leaf Model TX28) are available. Smaller sizes from 20 cc’s per revolution (the TX002) to 200 cc’s per revolution (the TX02) are in full development and available on special order to select customers. Efficiencies as high as 65 to 70 percent can be achieved by the blower depending on model, pressure and flow. Pressure differentials of up to 2.0 can be achieved for short durations, with 1.8 running continuously. The high efficiency and small size of these new blowers are very beneficial for Mobile applications where size and weight are critical.
