What Is the Difference Between a Blower and a Fan?

The term industrial blower is sometimes used interchangeably with industrial fan because the product designs are essentially the same. The main difference is that a blower has a slightly higher pressure rise than a fan. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) differentiates industrial blowers and fans based on the ratio between discharge pressure and suction pressure.

Fan: Pressure ratio up to 1.11

Blower: Pressure ratio from 1.11 to 1.2

Fans and blowers are necessary for air to overcome the flow resistance from components like ducts and dampers. Generally, the difference between a fan and a blower is which side of the fan is offering the resistance that the device must overcome to keep the process working and air moving. An industrial air blower is used for applications where the system resistance is higher than that for a fan. Selecting the right size and type of fan or blower will help optimize HVAC performance, conserve energy, and reduce the overall cost of operation.

What Are Industrial Blowers and Fans Used for?

Industrial fans and blowers facilitate airflow to various processes across many industries, providing air for ventilation and industrial process requirements. A large commercial fan or blower generates pressure to move air against resistance caused by ducts, dampers, or other components. Uses for large industrial fans and blowers include:

  • Moving air in buildings and enclosed environments
  • Exhausting air contaminated with smoke, noxious gases, fumes, and other undesirable contaminants
  • Material handling and pneumatic systems
  • Cooling personnel and workspaces
  • Process cooling
  • Dedusting

Benefits of Industrial Fans

Industrial fans are available with varying ranges of output to help regulate the temperature in your environment. In some cases, running a large industrial fan can create an evaporative cooling effect of up to ten degrees during the heat of summer. Using large commercial fans can help maintain proper temperature, promote energy efficiency, and lower operating cost.

Benefits of Industrial Blowers

Many manufacturing operations require good airflow. Industrial air blowers help clean the air and filter dirt and harmful chemicals from the air supply, improving workplace safety in the process. Durable industrial blowers can withstand harsh conditions without needing repairs or replacement for years. Since industrial blowers rely on kinetic energy, they are extremely energy efficient.

Many types of industrial blowers and fans are available at various price points, each suited for certain applications. Choosing the best industrial blower fan equipment helps optimize performance, while poor selection leads to wasted energy and increased cost.
