Operating Principle

Incoming air is trapped by the pair of tri-lobe impellers. Simultaneously, pressurized air is being discharged (right). As the lower impeller passes the wrap-around flange, WHISPAIR™ jets equalize pressure between trapped air and the discharge area, aiding impeller movement and reducing power requirements. Impellers move air into the discharge area (right). Backflow is controlled, resulting in reduction of noise relative to conventional blowers.
