ROOTS™ RAM X™ Tri-Lobe Rotary Positive Displacement Blowers


Unit is available in 9 different models. All models feature “universal” mounting feet which allow the unit to be mounted in four different configurations. Piston ring seals reduce leakage through the shaft openings in the headplates. Lip type seals prevent lubrication from entering the air chamber. Each unit utilizes the Whispair™ feature for quieter operation when compared to a conventional unit operating at the same conditions.

Flow Range: 317 CFM to 5399 CFM
Pressure Range: 1 psi to 15 psi
Vacuum Range: 1” to 16”Hgg (Dry)

ROOTS™ RAM X™ Tri-Lobe rotary blowers are heavy-duty units designed with integral-shaft ductile iron impellers having an involute profile for maximum efficiency. The blowers feature ROOTS WHISPAIR™ discharge design which, when combined with our trilobe impellers, delivers quieter operation than conventional tri-lobeblowers.

The headplates and rigid, one-piece casing are grey iron, while the drive end cover and gear cover are aluminum. Carburized and ground alloy steel spur timing gears are taper mounted on the shafts, secured with a locknut. Cylindrical roller bearings are used.
Piston rings reduce air leakage through the shaft openings in the headplates, and lip-type oil seals prevent lubricant from entering the air chamber. RAM X rotary blowers incorporate thrust control, with splash oil lubrication at both ends of the blower.

All frame sizes are designed with detachable rugged steel mounting feet which permit in-field adaptability to either vertical or horizontal installation requirements. The top shaft is extended for drive on side outlet blowers, and either shaft can be extended for drive on top or bottom outlet blowers.

Warranty: Twelve months of operation or eighteen months from date of original purchase.
