Rietschle Thomas Combines Rotary Lobe Technology and Efficiency With Compact Size
The new RL Series rotary lobe blower from Rietschle Thomas brings the benefits of "Roots blower" technology to a unit measuring just 6 in. long and weighing only 1.75 lbs. The unusually small size is made possible through a patent-pending assembly process that greatly minimizes leak paths within the blower chamber.
RL Series blowers provide high flow at low pressure and are ideal for applications including fuel cells, laboratory pressure and vacuum sources, particle counters and air samplers, gas boosting, and a variety of portable air-moving devices.
Because rotary lobe blowers are contact-less with no internal wear surfaces, the RL Series blower generates very little heat, is very efficient, and provides long, service-free life. A 12V brushless DC motor and precision permanently lubricated timing gears carry the long-life approach throughout the unit's design.
Despite its small size, the RL Series blower delivers air flow up to 2 cfm (56 lpm), pressure to 2 psi (0.14 bar) and vacuum to 4 in. hg (-135 mbar). It can be mounted either vertically or horizontally and is equipped with standard 3/8 in. O.D. hose barbs and a 6 in. wiring harness.
With annual sales of over two million units into more than 70 countries, Rietschle Thomas stands as the world leader in vacuum and pressure technology. Rietschle Thomas has been supplying custom and standard pumps and compressors for both air and liquid for over four decades. Rietschle Thomas products are used in a wide variety of applications including medical and pharmaceutical equipment, automobiles, business machines, printing presses, packaging machines, environmental systems and vending products, among others.
