Vortron's Air Power® Blower Lineup
Each Air Power® blower model (X40, J70 and Z40e) is available in different speeds and motor sizes. Process Air Solutions will help you select the right model, speed, and motor size for your application. Call (636) 343-5252 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
A closer look reveals that Vortron Air Power® means business. All models are based upon modern, high-efficiency centrifugal compressor design principles, and feature aerodynamic performance that is vastly superior to the common, outdated blower technology that is currently still being used in most industrial blowers today. Vortron holds manufacturing and quality to aerospace turbomachinery standards, which enables Air Power® centrifugal blowers to consistently meet operating points and efficiency levels well beyond the reach of the competition. With an Air Power® blower, the elusive 100"H2O at 1000 CFM is not only easily reached, it's achieved at 80 percent efficiency!
In order for a centrifugal blower to take advantage of impeller work effectively, flow must be diffused efficiently so high levels of pressure can be produced at minimum loss. Exclusive to Air Power® centrifugal blowers, Vortron incorporates diffusers, each matched optimally to the flow physics of the impeller, with numerous iterations tested until maximum level of efficiency is attained. A matched volute further collects and diffuses to result in additional pressure rise.
What is the result of this process? Isentropic efficiency up 80%! In fact, all Air Power® centrifugal blowers reach at least 75% efficiency, with over than 70% for the majority of the flow range (surge to choke). These efficiency levels are achieved at pressures which eclipse the performance of most competitive, single-stage industrial blowers by far. For Example, the Air Power® Z40e centrifugal blower can deliver 170" H2O (WC) pressure at 1200 CFM, at an efficiency of 78%! Looking at from another standpoint, a 20HP Z40e blower easily reaches the elusive operating point of 100" H2O at 1000 CFM.
The blower's bearing system incorporates angular contact (A/C) ABEC-9 class precision bearings. To better support the belt load, a duplex pair or bearings is positioned outboard. A/C bearings generate less friction and are better suited for use in high-speed blowers, hence less heat and temperature rise than deep groove ball bearing systems seen in competitive centrifugal blowers. The result is a greater margin for speed and load capacity, which equates to enhanced durability and extended blower life.
Air Power® Tensioning and Belt Life - In today's industrial blowers, automatic tensioning systems are seen as standard, but Air Power® centrifugal blowers incorporate a precision-machined idler system with proprietary features such as dual bearings for extended life. In addition, the entire blower drive system is enclosed and cooled by the Patented Fresh-Aire system. The reasoning behind this is simple: generally speaking, an 18-degree belt temperature rise can cut the life of the belt in half! Temperature rise in the Air Power® idler system and belt is managed by carrying away heat, and again, reliability and operating life are maximized. Industrial customers always place a high demand on idler and belt performance - Vortron Industrial has engineered a solution!

Vortron's Warranty and Service Program
Vortron Industrial maintains its commitment to quality with continued investment in state-of-the-art manufacturing and assembly equipment to enable the production of centrifugal blowers that meet the performance demands of today's industry. No other company, building centrifugal blowers today, holds tighter manufacturing tolerances than Vortron Industrial.
Warranty Policy - Vortron Industrial Air Power® blowers are warranted for two full years from the date placed in service (limited to 25 months from the date of shipment) for workmanship and material defect, to the original purchaser only. Should the blower fail, Vortron Industrial will examine the failure. If failure is determined by Vortron Industrial to be related to workmanship or material defect, Vortron Industrial will at its option repair or replace the blower
Parts and Accessories Policy - Vortron Industrial Air Power® spare parts and accessories are guaranteed for four (4) months from date of shipment for workmanship and material defect, to the original purchaser only. If failure is determined by Vortron Industrial to be related to workmanship or material defect, Vortron Industrial will at its option repair or replace the part.
Corrective Action - Vortron Industrial will provide a written report indicating reason(s) causing the failure, with corrective action recommendations. Failures determined to be due to abuse, misuse, misapplication or repeat offense will not be covered. Vortron Industrial will then advise options that may be available to you. Any failed unit that has been tampered with by attempting repair or diagnosis will void the warranty, unless prior written authorization has been provided by Vortron Industrial.
Local and National Support - Vortron Industrial understands that good service means being responsive. We know how crucial it is for our customers to have their equipment running efficiently at all times. For immediate assistance with service, repairs, or returns on all Air Power® centrifugal blowers and parts, please contact Process Air Solutions.
Motors for Hazardous Locations - Vortron Industrial will not be responsible for determining suitability, or for developing or certifying specifications, design, or construction of a motor blower assembly for installation in a hazardous, explosive location. The customer must certify and advise the proper NEMA motor enclosure. Should the customer desire to use standard TEFC motors as a substitute for explosion-proof motors, the customer must certify the application to be in accordance with local, state, and/or federal codes relating to the use of motors in an explosion proof location.
Vortron's warranty covers repairs or replacement of blowers only, and will not cover labor for removal, installation, accessories or other items not considered an integral blower part. Product returned for failures determined to be caused by abuse, misuse, or repeat offense will be subject to an evaluation fee of $250. Maximum liability will in no case exceed the value of the product purchased. Shipping and freight costs are the responsibility of the purchaser; Vortron Industrial will not accept shipments freight-collect, unless prior written authorization is provided by Vortron Industrial. Damage resulting from mishandling during shipment is not covered by Vortron's warranty. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to file claims with their carrier. Other terms and conditions of sale are stated on the back of the order acknowledgement.
