Consider lobe blowers combined with compressors
New blower meets low-pressure applications cost-effectively
Air and inert gases are often compressed in a variety of processes and facilities. These processes and applications include wastewater treatment plants, oil refineries, the petrochemical processing industry and power generation plants. Compression equipment is also installed where a carrier gas such as air is needed for conveying powders. In general, these applications require gas pressures that are too low for what we typically call a compressor and too high for what is usually handled by blowers. Of course, these services could always be satisfied with independent or free-standing machines, but promising hybrid machines are now available.
