Product Description

ROOTS RCS-DSL Frame 817 Rotary Blowers
Roots RCS rotary blowers are heavy duty units that are center-timed for rotation in either direction. Detachable rugged steel mounting feet allow 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 rotary blowers.  This DSL model features Dual Splash Lubrication, where the basic RCS model uses Trico oilers for lubrication.
