Regenerative Blowers Provide Safe and Dependable Handling of Corrosive or Potentially Explosive Gases

Press release date: April 30, 2014

AMETEK Rotron ChemTough blowers handle methane extraction and flaring and other challenging applications

AMETEK Precision Motion Control ( offers ROTRON Chem-Tough regenerative (side channel) blowers for situations requiring safe and efficient handling of corrosive and/or potentially explosive gases.

• Oil & Gas
• Landfill gas recovery
• Chemical tank agitation
• Wastewater treatment
• Aquaculture oxidation

ROTRON regenerative blowers operate dependably in environmentally challenging, chemically corrosive and potentially hazardous conditions including methane extraction and flaring. They are ideal for a wide range of oil-rig, oil-field, landfill, wastewater and chemical processing applications.

The blowers employ regenerative air technology to develop proper air pressures and vacuums. This is accomplished without the higher energy and maintenance costs associated with larger multi-stage or positive displacement blowers and compressors. An extensive product range allows users to achieve ideal flows, pressures, and vacuums. Permanent salt spray resistance also makes them ideal for aquaculture.

Rugged construction features include nickel-plated components and 303 stainless steel motor shafts and hardware. Custom designed seals assure leak containment.

Use of low-friction polymers provides permanent “dry” lubricity. The blower’s low-noise, high efficiency aerodynamics are achieved through the use of lower speed, long-life AC Induction motors. These ATEX-certified, explosion-proof motors are custom-designed for harsh environments and available in all international voltages.

AMETEK PMC is a division of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annual sales of US$3.6 billion.
