KENT, OH - AMETEK Dynamic Fluid Solutions (DFS) offers Rotron® MD101 magnetic-drive regenerative blowers specifically designed to boost natural gas pressure for a wide range of manufacturing operations.  AMETEK has three standard types of Rotron regenerative (side channel) blowers: IN blowers for industrial use, CP chemical processing blowers and EN environmental blowers.

All of the blowers employ regenerative air technology for ensuring proper air pressures and vacuums for the boost function but without the higher energy and maintenance costs associated with larger, multi-stage or positive, air-displacement blowers and compressors. AMETEK's blowers are hermetically sealed using a magnetically coupled design that eliminates leaks further enhancing pump reliability and durability.

Rotron blowers feature clean, oil-free and maintenance-free operation. They are engineered for quiet (within OSHA standards), continuous operation and extended service life. They can achieve maximum airflows of 29 SCFM, with pressures up to 25 IWG and vacuums up to 23IWG. They operate on 115 VAC voltages.

The blowers are made with rugged cast aluminum housings, impellers and covers. All models are customizable for particular application requirements. Along with biogas and natural gas boosting, applications for the blowers include gas, vapor and fume recovery; solid material transport, separation and collection; parts blow-off and drying; and solution and media agitation and aeration.

For natural gas and biogas applications, ¼ horsepower HP TEFC and XP (explosion-proof) motors are standard. Users may upgrade and/or optimize blower motors for chemical duty, high-efficiency operation, inverter duty and/or industry-specific applications.

Among the most-popular blower options is AMETEK's proprietary Chem-Tough™ corrosion-resistant aluminum surface treatment that allows the blowers to handle demanding chemical and hazardous environments. 

Options include standard pipe fittings, and slip on or face flanges. Blower accessories include flow meters (ranging from 6 to 850 SCFM), relief values, inlet and inline filters, moisture separators and gauges, both pressure and vacuum.   Noise-dampening enclosures and external muffler can keep noise levels to below 65 DBA.

AMETEK DFS offers one of the largest selections of regenerative blowers in the industry. Along with ROTRON®regenerative blowers, AMETEK's DFS brands include DurA-Tek Prime pumps and Windjammer®, Nautilair ® and MICROjammer®variable-speed brushless blowers; transportation blowers, motors, pumps and fans.
