When it comes to cleaning carpets a blower unit provides suction to lift dirt from the carpets.
In fogging applications, air supplied by a blower can be mixed with a chemical and pressed via the nozzle to create a fine mist – it can be used for spraying insecticide. Combined with air, the liquid is atomized and sprayed as small droplets, a system that can be used for crop dusting, fruit spraying, tree fogging, or for pest control.
A typical GE Roots model used for these applications is the URAI, a range of compact blowers engineered for continuous use with maximum reliability. These blowers have a time tested lubrication system.
Oversized anti-friction bearings are used, with a heavy-duty cylindrical roller bearing at the drive shaft to withstand V-belt pull.
