Prime-Air Hurricane   

Using compressed air or steam, Hurricane air blowers provide high volumes of air with NO MOVING PARTS. Hurricane blowers are used in supplying or exhausting applications such as: tanks, towers, refineries, process plants, pressure vessels, cooling/drying applications, foundries, sand blasting and shipyard applications, manholes, cargo holes, and other similar confined work areas. Hurricanes are also suited for use in hazardous atmospheric locations.

Venturi Air Blowers - Principle of Operation

In the Hurricane, air or steam enters a concentric manifold chamber surrounding a Venturi throat. A series of orifices located symmetrically around the chamber are positioned to expand the air or steam into the reaction zone downstream of the throat. It is here that the high velocity air or steam imparts its energy to slower moving air and accelerates it, which in turn draws more air through the throat into the reaction zone. A conical-shaped diffuser controls direction and expansion of the accelerated air.
