The new positive displacement blower from Kice Industries, Inc., Wichita, Kansas, U.S., was designed specifically for the grain processing industry. The blower features heavy-duty construction, quiet operation for pneumatic conveying, clean design to eliminate crevices and no external vents, which can cause oil leaks. Kice's new blower incorporates oversized bearings and shafts and an extra drive bearing for higher load rating. A unique rotor tip design, low-speed operations and oversized oil reservoirs allow the blowers to run quietly at cool temperatures. The blower's efficient operation eliminates the need for cooling ribs on the exterior of the body.
