Application of Roots Blower
Industry : Aluminum
Pneumatic conveying of aluminum oxider and other dry bulk raw materials. Installations work in pressure and vacuum mode and are stationary or portable (e.g. barges and gantry type ship unloaders). Capability in pneumatic conveying system design.
Blower (1000 mbar / 14.5 psig) are used extensively.
Industry : Cement
Pneumatic conveying of raw meal, cement, kiln dust, limestone, coal powder. Installations work in pressure and vacuum mode and are stationary or portable (e.g. barges). Capability in pneumatic conveying system design.
Blower (1000 mbar / 14.5 psig) are used extensively.
Other applications include :
- Blending - raw meal
- Aeration - raw meal and cement
- Combustion air - kiln and burner
Power Generation :
Many cement plant generate their own coal fired power plant. Blower are used for coal dust and fly-ash conveying and pollution control flue gas desulphurization processes (oxidation).
Industry : Environmental
Waste water treatment
Municipal raw sewage or industrial organic waste such as food products are aerated to feed microorganisms with the dissolved oxygen necessary to digest waste byproducts. Fine, coarse and membrane filtration technologies bubble aeration systems. Blower are also used for filter flushing, grit tank cleaning, backwash operations and gas recovery. Oil-free compressors are ideal for deep cell aeration system to supply air at pressures up to 1 bar. Positive displacement Blower permit energy optimization under variable flow conditions by means of variable frequency drives (VFDs). Typical speed turndown of 3:1 is possible, temperature permitting.
Bio-gas recovery and re-circulation
The gas composed primarily of methane but containing traces of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is also known as digester gas and landfill gas. It is produced through the natural breakdown of organic material or accelerated breakdown in waste water treatment plants. The gas is either flared to reduce pollution, re-circulated within a process, or used as a fuel to power generators and other internal combustion engine driven machines. This gas is both explosive and corrosive – TMVT has supplied many biogas blower.
Soil hydrocarbon and solvent vapor extraction
The extraction takes place for soil remediation purposes. Pressure or a combined of pressure and vacuum machines are used to draw air through the contaminated area to evaporate Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are carried into the air-stream for recovery or immediate disposal. Hydrocarbons may include petroleum products and industrial solvents accidentally spilled from tank vehicles or leaked from fuel storage tanks.
Drinking water purification
100% oil-free Blower supply air to ozone producers and filter flushing systems.
Industry : Food, Beverage, and Pharmaceutical
TMVT oil free Blower are used to supply 100% oil free air to various food (beverage, meat packing, poultry, etc.) and pharmaceutical processes.
Principal application is pneumatic conveying in both vacuum and pressure modes to handle the transfer of dry bulk materials such as flour, salt, sugar, grain, spices, chocolate and milk powder, and other natural and man made food processing dry materials used in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Materials are transferred to and from railcars, silos, hoppers and other bulk transfer components.
Capability in pneumatic conveying system design.
Vacuum is used to operate packaging machines and handle final products.
Many food and pharmaceutical manufacturers operate waste water treatment facilities to decontaminate process or sewage water and treat organic waste
Industry : Chemical
Blowers are used to convey, boost and compress a myriad of inert, corrosive, and explosive gases found in chemical plants and refineries.
Gases include nitrogen, hydrogen, natural gas, flare and vent gas, chlorine gas and various hydrocarbon combinations to name only a few. Hydro carbons and contaminated gases such as flare and coke oven gas require blower and special purpose oil free compressors. Blowers are used in regenerative drying systems
Industry : Petro-Chemical
Blower are used to convey, boost and compress a myriad of inert, corrosive, and explosive gases found in chemical plants and refineries.
Blower and compressors used to convey gases in the oil industry
Gases include nitrogen, hydrogen, natural gas, flare and vent gas, chlorine gas and various hydrocarbon combinations to name only a few. Inert gases can often be handled by oil-injected screw compressors, while hydro carbons and contaminated gases such as flare and coke oven gas require blowers. Blower are used in regenerative drying systems
Industry : Mining
Blowers and Compressors are used in copper, nickel, gold, and diamond mines to name only a few.
Principal applications :
- Pneumatic conveying of dry bulk materials
- Capability in pneumatic conveying system design. Blower (1000 mbar / 14.5 psig) are used extensively.
- Air supply for oxidation processes and other refining applications.
- Slurry filter drying.
- Use of high vacuum pumps in casting operations.
Many mines also operate waste water treatment facilities to decontaminate process water, and which require aeration blowers
Industry : Power Generation

- Pneumatic conveying of fly-ash and lime in both vacuum and pressure modes;
- Materials are transferred to and from railcars, silos, hoppers and other bulk transfer components and receivers;
- Capability in pneumatic conveying system design.
- TMVT Blowers are used for flue gas desulphurization systems (oxidation). We comply with the most stringent specifications found in this industry;
Industry : Marine and Aquaculture
- Marine diesel supercharging
- Air supply to bubbler systems to ice-breakers and other arctic duty vessels
- Inert gas fuel tank blanketing systems (tanker ships)
- Pneumatic emergency steering and braking systems
In the case of dry bulk material transport ships and barges, Blower a are used on pneumatic conveying loading and unloading systems.
Large passenger and crew vessels such as cruise ships and military craft operate onboard waste water treatment systems using aeration blowers. Locks, harbors, and marinas use air bubbler systems to ensure equipment operation and access at sub-zero temperatures.
