• RAM Rotary Blowers Frame Size 418 are heavy-duty units designed with integral-shaft ductile iron impellers having an involute profile. The head plates and rigid, one-piece casing are grey iron, while the drive end cover and gear cover are aluminum. Carburized and ground alloy steel spur timing gears are taper mounted on the shafts, secured with a locknut. Cylindrical roller bearings are used on all units. Piston rings reduce air leakage through the shaft openings in the head plates, and lip-type oil seals prevent lubricant from entering the air chamber. A hydrodynamic seal on the drive shaft prevents shaft seal oil leaks.
• RAM Rotary Blowers incorporate thrust control, with splash oil lubrication at both ends of the blower. All frame sizes are designed with detachable rugged steel mounting feet which permit in-field adaptability to either vertical or horizontal installation requirements. The top shaft is extended for drive on side outlet blowers, and either shaft can be extended for drive on top or bottom outlet blowers.
• Two figure-eight lobe impellers mounted on parallel shafts rotate in opposite directions. As each impeller passes the blower inlet, it traps a definite volume of air and carries it around the case to the blower outlet, where the air is discharged. With constant speed operation the displaced volume is essentially the same regardless of pressure, temperature or barometric pressure. Timing gears control the relative position of the impellers to each other and maintain small but definite clearances. This allows operation without lubrication being required inside the air casing.
