Brushed Vs Brushless Motors

Posted by Optimal Tech on

When you are searching for a solution, you've already got a few parameters in place to help you make your decision. But do you know everything about the product you need? Let's take a look at a few parameters that may be helpful when you're considering a brushed or brushless motor. Motor Performance For each type of motor, there are different performance Levels that depend on size, voltage, flow and impedance. Brushed motors typically have higher air performance than brushless motors due to their simple design. They also only work as an open Loop system, while brushless motors can be...

Top Six Misconceptions About Industrial Blowers

Posted by Optimal Tech on

1. Despite the fact that many in industry use the terms interchangeably, technically there’s a difference between compressors and fans and blowers. In short, compressors pressurized gases within controlled volumes to ultimately facilitate some type of work. Fans move large gas volumes with slight pressure increase. Blowers move large gas volumes with moderate pressure increase. Further differentiation is made between blower subtypes, as regenerative blowers are generally applied in designs needing high-pressure movement of low airflow, and centrifugal blowers are generally for low-pressure movement of large airflow. 2. Most blowers use one of four motor types — and that largely...
