About Centrifugal Blowers
Centrifugal blowers deliver directional air flow by maximizing static pressure, making them optimum for spot cooling and air flow via a duct. Alternatively, their high suction can be utilized to hold an object in position. Also, their directed air flow can be used to move objects. Centrifugal blowers can achieve much higher pressures than centrifugal fans; the pressures can be as high as 1.2 kg/cm² and are also used to produce negative pressures for vacuum systems in various industrial applications. Centrifugal blowers resemble centrifugal pumps. The impeller is typically gear-driven and can rotate as fast as 15,000 revolutions per minute (rpm).
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global centrifugal blowers market to grow at a CAGR of 4.95% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global centrifugal blowers market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, Technavio considers the revenue generated from the application of centrifugal blowers in the major end-user industries.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Centrifugal Blowers Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global centrifugal blowers market: Air Control Industries, GP Motors, Howden, HSI Blowers, and Huadong Blower.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AIRAP, Aspirnova 2000 srl, Cattin Filtration, and Euroventilatori International.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Innovation of MAX seal for multistage centrifugal blowers will be a key trend for market growth. As centrifugal blowers are used in applications such as landfill gas where toxic and explosive gases are present, there is always a possibility of leakage of these gases. The leakage of such gases poses a threat to the health and safety of the personnel working, rendering the operations as high-risk operations. A seal has been developed known as the MAX seal to overcome this issue and ensure the safety of the operation. MAX seal is an innovation in dry seal technology, which reduces the fugitive emissions by as much as 67% compared with traditional seal options. This seal is suitable for operations that deal with toxic and explosive gases and improves the safety of the operation while extending bearing life and reducing the total cost of ownership.”
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be use of VFD to enhance blower efficiency. VFD in a blower acts as a speed adjusting the device to increase its efficiency. In the existing wastewater treatment plant installation, retrofitting a VFD requires minimum investment and lead time while achieving drastic energy savings. In a typical VFD installation, a conventional motor starter is exchanged with a VFD drive, which is capable of soft starting. New controls are deployed to prevent surges and an input mechanism for blower adjustment. The most common variations being flow and pressure.
Further, the report states that increased sale of refurbished equipment will be a major challenge for the market. Rising demand for centrifugal blowers and decreasing prices of steel and other raw materials have encouraged increased production of the equipment. The market for centrifugal blowers is prone to risk from refurbished products. Though key players are strengthening their technological expertise and improving their technical services, there is a huge possibility of revenues being affected due to increased sales of relatively low-cost refurbished centrifugal blowers. Vendors like Savona Equipment supply multiple brands of refurbished centrifugal blowers.
