Understanding Current Blower Technology and Isentropic Efficiency in Blowers
5 tips on assessing your current blower system.

Blowers are a critical resource for wastewater treatment plants, which makes
choosing the best blower vital for plant operational success. No plant is
stagnant, so a one size fits all approach often provides less than ideal
operational scenarios that plant operators must constantly adjust to. Taking
the time during the blower selection and evaluation stage can go a long way
to improving performance and control of the process.

Grab your lunch and join Stephen Horne, George Graves, and Travis Snead
of Kaeser Compressors, Inc., during this “Lunch & Learn” as they explore the
efficiencies and other aspects of current blower technologies—from positive
displacement lobe blowers to turbo blowers—in wastewater applications to
ensure the best blower is chosen as well as control options. Finally, get 5 tips
to help with assessing your current blower system.
