Camar Develops Blowers Designed For Shipboard Inlet Gas Systems

Camar Corporation of Worcester, Mass., has developed a series of blowers designed specifically for shipboard inlet gas systems.

The design and manufacture of these blowers is of American origin.

Because of the highly corrosive atmosphere produced by flue gas, scrubbed with seawater, and the high speeds necessary to produce the required static pressures, the fan impellers are fabricated of Inconel 625 material. These blow- ers have been furnished for system pressures to 93 inches w.g.

Capacities are available to 40,000 CFM.

For highest efficiencies, the blades are of the backward-curved design. This design exhibits nonoverloading characteristics to prevent overheating of electric motor drives.

Shafts are machined from 316L stainless steel. Shaft bearings are located outboard of the fan housing, and are of the tapered roller, s e l f - a l i g n i n g , grease-lubricated type.

The fan housing is split and flanged to provide access to the entire rotating fan assembly.

Built-in water-washing nozzles are provided in the inspection door of the upper half casing, to allow for fresh-water flushing of the fan impeller after system shut-down.

Additional product lines include the manufacture of marine turbines, ventilating fans, blowers and air systems.
