G.F. Puhl Series 200 Blowers: Features

The Series 200 blower is designed specifically for industrial material handling applications. These blowers have proven their capabilities on hundreds of tough applications all across the country.

  • Welded construction provides rigidity for rugged industrial applications. In smaller sizes, welded housing and bases are bolted together so that housing can be unbolted and rotated to other discharge position in the field.

  • Rotatable and reversible: Series 200 blowers can be rotated in the field to achieve various discharges.

  • Lifting lugs on all blower sizes for ease of handling.

  • Flanged inlets and outlets with holes on all fans; slip connections available as an option.

  • Laser-cut blades for minimal balance weight requirements to 0 oz.

  • Bearing: Ball or spherical roller bearing selected for extended service life over full catalog range.

  • Shafting: Turned, ground, and polishing shafting is straightened to close tolerance to minimize "run out" and ensure smooth operation.

  • Precise balancing: Series 200 blower wheels are dynamically balanced before final assembly; after assembly, all fans are test-run at as-ordered operating speed.

G.F. Puhl Series 200 Blowers: Belt Drives

The use of standard V-belt drive flexibility in fan performance is enhanced by changing sheaves and belts. In the lower horsepower ranges, V-belt drive selection is relatively simple, but as horsepower requirements increase, V-belt drive selection becomes more complicated and requires more consideration of the drive's effect on fan and motor bearings.

Although there are exceptions to every rule, there are a few general recommendations to remember:

  1. 3600 RPM motors are not generally recommended for belt drives above 20 H.P.

  2. 1800 RPM motors are not recommended for belt drives above 300 H.P.

  3. All motors 125 H.P. and larger, which are to be used with belt driven fans, require that the motor manufacturer:

    • Recommend the minimum diameter motor sheaves which may be used.

    • Recommend the maximum diameter motor sheaves which may be used. With the above information from the motor manufacturer, the drive can be selected.
