New Product: Rotary-lobe blower

Weighing in at 1.75 lb and measuring 6-in. long, the RL Series rotary-lobe blower’s small size is possible through an assembly process that minimizes leak paths within the blower chamber.

The unit, which features a 12-V brushless dc motor and permanently lubricated timing gears, delivers 1.900-cfm air flow, 2-psi pressure, and 4-in.-Hg vacuum. The blower comes with a 3/8-in. OD hose barbs and 6-in. wiring harness and can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
