1.1 Scope
This manual applies to Rotary Blowers of the TL Series from size 10 to size 900, both in
horizontal (H) and vertical (V) versions.

1.2 Operating principle


TL Series Blowers are positive displacement blowers comprising two conjugate shaped Tri-Lobe
rotors which rotate inside a “figure 8” shaped body. The incoming gas is trapped in the space
that forms between the body (figure 1a, 1b) and discharged via the outlet (figure 1c, 1d). The
operating pressure is generated by the resistance met by the gas exiting the unit. The capacity is
proportional to the speed of rotation and is almost constant when the operating pressure varies.

1a 1b 1c 1d
Fig. 1

1.3 Construction
The TL Series Blower is engineered for the smoothest possible flow of air, resulting in lower
pulsation and noise.
The body is closed at both ends by end plates in which the housings for the seals and bearings
are located. The rotors are synchronized by a pair of timing gears having helical, hardened and
ground teeth. The shafts have labyrinth seals; gas leaks are collected in special air spaces in the
covers and are discharged into the atmosphere. Two sumps are mounted on the covers which act
as oil sumps for splash lubrication of the bearings and the synchronizing gears. The gears are
secured on the shafts through conical coupling under oil pressure.

2.1 Gas conveyed
The blower can be used to convey inert gases such as air, nitrogen or other gases which are
compatible with the lubricating oil and with the materials used in the construction of the blower.
WARNING: The blower cannot be used to convey gases which are explosive, toxic
or in any way dangerous.
NOTE: To convey special gases consult Blower Engineering.

2.2 Working conditions


2.2.1 Speed of rotation – The maximum speed of rotation is shown in Table I. The
minimum speed of rotation depends on the maximum allowed differential temperature.

2.2.2 Pressure – The inlet pressure ranges from 3 psig (20.7 kPa) to 15 psig (103.4 kPa).
The maximum differential pressure is shown in Table I, and depends on the size of the
blower. The maximum compression ratio for all sizes of blowers is 2.

2.2.3 Temperature – The inlet temperature of the gas ranges from -13ºF (-25ºC) to 122ºF (50ºC).
The maximum differential temperature allowed is shown in Table I, and depends on the size of
the blower. The maximum temperature of the gas allowed at the discharge is 266ºF (130ºC).

2.3 Capacity adjustment
Capacity can only be adjusted in one of the two following ways:
• Varying the speed of rotation. This can be achieved via belt drives or by varying the
electric motor supply voltage frequency or with a double polarity motor.
• Bleeding off of excess capacity via a regulating valve on the outlet
Do not use the safety valve for this purpose because it will suffer excessive wear.
Do not re-circulate the excess gas into the blower inlet without cooling because it could
cause excessive heating.
WARNING: Do not adjust the gas capacity by using throttle valves placed on the
inlet or outlet piping.

3.1 Handling
To hoist the blower, use a
cable as shown in fig. 3

WARNING:
Do not use the holes in the
flanges to lift the blower. Horizontal: /H Vertical: /V
Fig. 3
3.2 Storage
Keep the blower in a dry cool closed environment. Do not remove the protective coverings
placed over the blower openings. Renew the preservation every 6 months, or more frequently
if the climate is damp.

3.2.1 Bearing storage – Half fill the sumps with anti-rust oil. Manually rotate the blower
shaft. Dispose of the used oil in accordance with local regulations.

3.2.2 Preservation of the compression chamber – Remove the protective coverings


from the blower openings. Apply a thin film of anti-rust oil to the internal surfaces of the
body to the covers and to the rotor surfaces.
WARNING: Use anti-rust and foam inhibiting oil with fire point over 392ºF
(200ºC) only.

suitable size, depending on the nominal current of the electrical motor. Keep the electric cables
away from heat sources and/or pointed edges. The motor must be protected by means of an
automatic switch set at the value of the rated current shown on the plate. For the safety of personnel,
the system must be protected by a suitable grounding device.
WARNING: Blower service must be carried out only after disconnecting the electric supply.

5.1 Preliminary controls


If the blower has been in storage for more than 6 months, check its state of preservation.
• Check the coupling or the sheave alignment
• Check the belt tension.
• Check that the blower shaft rotates freely manually.
• Check that the safety protection devices have been correctly installed and secured.
• Fill the blower with oil as described in paragraph 6.1.1.

5.2 Start up
5.2.1 First start-up
WARNING: During this operation personnel are in direct contact with the blower, and
for this reason noise protection must be worn.
Open the shut-off valve.
• Check that the safety valve has been set at the operating value.
• Check the rotation by ‘jogging’ the motor.

WARNING: Do not rotate the blower in the wrong direction for more than a few revolutions.
Start the blower
• Increase the operating pressure gradually until the rated value is reached.
• After about 10 to 20 minutes check that there are no oil leakages and strange noises or
vibrations. If such problems are found, stop the blower immediately.

5.2.2 Normal start-ups – With direct start-up the motor starts even with the maximum dis-
charge counter-pressure. With star-delta start-up, on the other hand, or with the starter; the
counter-pressure must be zero.

9 Blower Engineering Instructional Manual


5.3 Operating checks
5.3.1 Daily checks – With the blower running, check:
Outlet temperatures.
• Discharge pressure (when functioning under pressure).
• Suction pressure (when functioning in vacuum conditions).
• Absorbed power.

5.3.2 Check after first 50 hours – With the blower shut down, check:
The oil level.
• Oil leaks.
• Auxiliary circuit leaks.
• Belt tension.

5.3.3 Check every 500 hours – With the blower shut down, check:
The oil level.
• Oil viscosity and condition.
• Belt wear.
• Flexible coupling inserts.
• Auxiliary circuits.

5.4 Stopping the blower


If possible, remove the counter-pressure.
• Stop electric supply.

The blower can also be stopped in the presence of the counter-pressure but, because of the high
current absorption of the electric motor; problems with the electric circuit could result.

WARNING: Check that the deceleration of the blower is even and without vibrations.

Blower Engineering Instructional Manual 10


6.1 Preventive maintenance

6.1.1 Oil change


The first oil change should be performed after 100 working hours. Further oil changes are per-
formed every 2000 working hours. Oil should be checked regularly and oil changes made more
frequently if lubricant becomes contaminated due to adverse conditions.
The type of oil is shown in paragraph 10.

WARNING: Dispose of the used oil in accordance with the local regulations.

WARNING: Regardless, stick to the half way mark on the oil level sight glass.

Oil quantity: Vertical (qts / L) Oil quantity: Horizontal (qts / L)
