The Roots Universal RAI was first introduced in 1985 as a replacement for the Roots AF and RAI series of positive displacement blowers and vacuum pumps.
Roots also took aim at Sutorbilt’s California Series positive displacement blower at that time by designing the Roots URAI to be a drop in replacement. Both Roots and Sutorbilt made product frame sizes that were very similar.
The Universal RAI introduced “Universal” mounting feet that permitted the blower to be mounted in four different orientations. The Roots AF and RAI had their mounting feet cast into the headplates which meant the distributor or factory would have to stock your exact orientation for replacement. This meant delays in getting the right unit to the customer. Sutorbilt later adopted this same feature on their California Legend® Series unit.
