INNOVATION IN ACTIONIntroducing HSI High Speed TurboBlowers and ExhaustersWhat if a blower could ...• Operate 20-40% more energy efficiently ientlythan conventional machines?• Require NO lubrication?• Require NO maintenance besides inletfi lter cha nges?• Achieve sound levels below 85 dBA andoperate with virtually no vibration?• Have a simple, yet rugged design?• Be environmentally friendly?What if you found this blower with thelocal service and support that you knowand trust?With 25 years of experience in the market, HSI is the industryleader in technology by providing tomorrow’s row’s innovations todaywith our high speed turbo product. The HT product line currentlyhas over 45 performance confi gurations ranging from 5 hp to300 hp (1 to 250kW) and more under development. HSI is theonly air bearing turbo manufacturer in North America withdesign, engineering, manufacturing, and testing at our state-ofthe-artfacility in Houston, Texas USA.These revolutionary blower designsincorporate air bearings supported ona single shaft with integrated variablefrequency drive, control system and motor.These are all pre-packaged and prewiredin a single enclosure for simpleinstallation and application. Flow rangesfrom 10 to 10,000 SCFM (15 to 15,000nm 3 /hr) and pressures to 25 psi (1.7 bar)through the range of operation.
DESCRIPTION AND SPECIFICATIONSPOWER SAVINGThe HSI Turbo Blower is 20–40% more efficient thanconventional blower technologies offering payback oninvestments in 2 to 3 years from energy savings alone.LOW MAINTENANCENO lubrication, NO alignment and NO scheduledmaintenance outside of routine inlet fi lter changes. Thiscan save you time and money as compared to blowertechnologies requiring lubrication.NOISEEach standard package is fully enclosed and does notexceed 85 dBA per OSHA standards.INSTALLATIONA compact blower design allows considerable spacesavings. No special foundation support required andthe lightweight design offers easy access without therequirement of large overhead cranes.CONTROLCompletely integrated controls are pre-engineered as aworking system and can be upgraded to communicatewith any known protocol for remote operation andmonitoring.Shown above: State-of-the-Art blower test stand and customer viewing areaWhat is Your TRUE Cost of Ownership?What does effi ciency and payback really mean? “Wire to AirEffi ciency” is the total cost of power to produce the performanceyou require. At HSI, we believe effi ciency is only whata manufacturer can guarantee; and further what a manufacturercan verify with actual test results. Whether it be on ourown ASME PTC-10 Compliant Performance Testing Facilityor at your location, HSI is ready to show you real results.A true total cost of ownership includes power consumption,maintenance, and initial capital costs.Power ConsumptionService MaintenanceCapital CostLet us offer a 20 yearlife cycle analysis onyour next project.INTEGRATIONWith three different control modes as standard, thisblower can seamlessly operate in parallel with othertypes of blowers.COMPLETE PACKAGECompressor, motor, variable speed motor starter,pressure relief valve, expansion joint, and controlcabinet built in one complete pre-engineered system.Just add electricity and piping.SERVICESimple modular design offers complete replacementparts to be accessed without special tools or training.All in stock and readily available from our factory inHouston, Texas USA.
