What are the characteristics of the three-dimensional flow impeller of RAETTS blower?

What are the characteristics of the three-dimensional flow impeller of RAETTS blower?
The impeller of the traditional blower is a binary flow impeller, that is, the operation of the fluid parameters is determined by the two coordinates of x and y; the ternary flow impeller means that in actual flow, all flow parameters are determined by the x, y, and z coordinates Three-dimensional operation of fluid. If the binary flow is a plane photograph, then the ternary flow is a three-dimensional sculpture. Obviously, the ternary flow design is more in line with the real operating conditions of the fluid, especially for the irregular movement caused by irregular fluids (air, water, etc.) , which can realize all-round description and calculation.
The impellers of air levitation blower and magnetic levitation blower are the first factor that affects efficiency. Generally, the efficiency of ternary flow impellers can be improved by about 5%-10% compared to other impellers. All series of RAETTS air suspension and magnetic suspension blower are equipped with three-dimensional flow impellers, including the heat dissipation impeller part, ensuring high efficiency and energy saving.Dynamic Centrifugal Turbo Blower
Specifically, the characteristics of ternary flow impeller include:
1. The impeller has wider blades and smaller hub, which enhances circulation and effectively improves work efficiency;
2. The diameter of the impeller becomes smaller and the outlet width increases, effectively improving work efficiency;
3. The blade twist is much stronger than that of one-element flow, which is also one of the advantages of this three-element flow blade;
4. The inlet edge of the ternary flow blade extends toward the inlet of the incoming flow, which greatly saves the energy at the inlet;
5. This kind of pump reduces the impact of the intake air and reduces the throw-off of the tail, so that the efficiency can be truly improved.
RAETTS blower impellers are all precision machined by a five-axis CNC machining center. The precision-manufactured impellers have the characteristics of high strength, high aerodynamic efficiency, and low wear. All impellers have been treated with hard oxygen anti-corrosion;
The whole machine adopts a frequency conversion adjustment method, eliminating the guide vane adjustment, the starting current is smaller, the blower has a wider adjustable range, the impeller is directly connected to the shaft, and the power transmission efficiency is 100%. The impeller needs to undergo rigorous bench experiments to ensure that its aerodynamic performance is efficient and reliable. The impeller’s variable efficiency can reach 85%, and it has passed the 115% overspeed test

Why does the impeller of RAETTS blower need to be hard oxidized?
For blower, the impeller is one of the important components. Different blower use different types of impellers. Generally speaking, the impellers of centrifugal blower are much more complex than those of axial flow blower and diagonal flow blower, and have higher technological requirements. In actual operation, the impeller is the area most closely in contact with the air, and is prone to corrosion and other damage. In order to improve the corrosion resistance, wear resistance, weather resistance, insulation and adsorption of the impeller, at the same time, in order to keep the impeller at a higher In order to improve the performance, the finished impeller needs to be hard oxidized, which is a key production process.positive-displacement blowers 
The main material of the RAETTS blower impeller is high-grade aviation aluminum. In addition to aluminum, magnesium is also added as the main material. It is an aluminum alloy metal and a by-product of the development of the aviation industry. It was developed by the Academy of Sciences. Become. The full name of hard anodizing of aluminum alloys is hard anodizing. The purpose of hard anodizing of aluminum alloys is to improve various properties of aluminum and aluminum alloys. It is not only suitable for deformed aluminum alloys, but also for press-forged aluminum alloy parts. Aviation aluminum becomes even more powerful after hard oxidation. The insulation and wear resistance of the product are greatly enhanced, and its surface hardness effect is also improved. Therefore, in the machinery industry, some important parts will use aluminum hard oxidation. products instead.Turbo Type Blowers
The hard oxidation treatment method is an electrolytic surface treatment method. The principle is to use electrolyte to partially dissolve the metal surface, and then adjust the potential to react to generate a hard oxide layer to form a protective layer, thereby making the metal The surface corrosion resistance and wear resistance of the material are improved. There are many electrolytic methods for hard anodizing, such as sulfuric acid, oxalic acid, propylene glycol, sulfosalicylic acid and its carbonates and organic acids. Among them, the sulfuric acid method is a widely used hard oxidation method. Common power supplies can be divided into DC, AC, AC-DC superimposed, pulse and superimposed pulse power supplies. Hard anodized films generally require a thickness of 25-150μm, and the thickness of most hard anodized films is 50-80μm.

How do the bearings of RAETTS air suspension blower float?
We know that air suspension blowers are mainly composed of impellers, air suspension bearings, high-speed permanent magnet motors, frequency converters and structural control systems. Air bearings (also known as air bearings) refer to sliding bearings that use gas (usually air, but may also be other gases) as lubricant. Air is less viscous than oil, resistant to high temperatures, and non-polluting, so it can be used in high-speed machines, instruments and radioactive devices, but its load capacity is lower than that of oil.
The main shaft of the motor and the impeller of the blower are coaxial, and the high-speed rotor system is directly supported by air suspension bearings. The so-called air suspension blower refers to a type of blower in which when the blower rotor rotates at high speed, the air will produce a dynamic pressure effect between the rotor and the foil bearing surface, forming a high-pressure air film to float the rotor!
Air suspension bearings use air as the working medium, elastic flat foils as the supporting surface, and elastic corrugated foils as the supporting components. Initially, the impeller rotor naturally falls into the bottom of the bearing under the action of gravity, but when the rotor rotates at high speed, a dynamic pressure effect occurs between the planes due to the viscosity of the air and the action of the wedges. The flat and corrugated foils are elastically deformed on the foil and rotor surfaces, pushing the flat foils apart and leaving the rotor in a suspended state. Uneven circumferential air pressure gives foil bearings the ability to withstand loads. During the high-speed rotation of the rotor, a high-pressure air film forms between the rotor and the foil, causing the rotor to levitate.
Although the impeller rotor has no friction after the air suspension blower operates normally, this does not mean that the equipment is completely friction-free during the entire process. During the starting and stopping phases of the foil bearing, when the speed is lower than the critical speed, the dynamic pressure effect is not enough to fix the rotor. At this time, there will still be contact friction between the inner surface of the bearing and the rotor. This time is short, but still has flat foil. The wear problem of the membrane will shorten the service life, so when using the air suspension blower, frequent start and stop operations must be minimized. At the same time, in order to increase the service life of dynamic pressure bearings, a high-quality lubricating coating must be applied to the bearing surface.

Why does RAETTS air suspension blower need to be equipped with a frequency converter?
The air suspension blower is a single-stage centrifugal blower, which is composed of an air suspension motor, bearings, frequency converter and control system. The air-floating blower abandons the gearbox speed increaser, coupling and lubrication system of the traditional centrifugal blower, and is directly driven by a high-speed permanent magnet motor. The motor uses a frequency converter for speed regulation. The blower impeller is directly combined with the motor, and the shaft is suspended on the active on the air bearing.
There is a question, why does the air suspension blower use a frequency converter to control the motor?
First, let’s look at what would happen if the air suspension blower does not use a frequency converter? If the frequency converter is not configured, the blower needs to be started by reducing the voltage when starting. After the blower runs normally, the motor starts running again and drives the impeller to generate air volume. The air volume is adjusted according to the damper. If the blower does not have an inverter, the blower motor can only operate at full load. At this time, the blower motor cannot change speed, which will cause the blower’s working efficiency to become low and the phenomenon of a big horse pulling a small cart.
The air suspension blower can be adjusted at variable speed after using a frequency converter. Compared with the general speed adjustment method using a frequency converter, the frequency converter speed adjustment has obvious advantages over the general speed adjustment method.
(1) Low operating speed and high speed;
(2) The current control is very stable and will not cause vibration of the blower bearings or affect the air suspension system;
(3) Non-stop function after instantaneous power outage to avoid abnormal shutdown caused by lightning strikes or unstable power grid;
(4) Good communication function to facilitate information exchange with the entire blower control system;
(5) High carrier frequency, good heat dissipation, and protection of key components;
Therefore, the use of frequency converters for air suspension blower can effectively reduce the loss of useless work, and can also adjust the voltage according to the load condition of the air suspension blower. Moreover, the frequency converter uses soft start, and there is no large current when starting the air suspension blower, which can effectively save energy and reduce operating costs.

Why air suspension blower do not need to be maintained with lubricating oil
During the use of traditional RAETTS blowers and multi-stage centrifugal blowers, since they are gear speed-increasing blowers and use mechanical bearings, the gear bearings need to be lubricated regularly and lubricating oil is required.
For air suspension blower using new suspension bearings, due to their special structure and design, they perfectly avoid gearless speed-increasing systems and oil-free station systems, ensuring the output of clean air and meeting the aeration needs of many industries.
Air suspension bearings mainly include radial bearings, thrust bearings and other components. There is physical contact between the rotary shaft and the bearing before starting. During startup, the rotary shaft and the bearing move relative to each other to form a hydrodynamic field. This hydrodynamic force forms a buoyancy force in the radial bearing. This buoyancy force keeps the rotary shaft in a suspended state to achieve the purpose of free rotation. air foil bearing blower
To put it figuratively, an air suspension blower is a type of blower in which the air rotates at high speed of the blower rotor, which will produce a dynamic pressure effect between the rotor and the foil bearing surface, forming a high-pressure air film to float the rotor. Since there is no physical contact between the rotor and the bearing during high-speed operation, there is no mechanical friction, so there is no need for lubricating oil, and it can also be understood that air is the lubricant.
Air suspension bearings are different from traditional ball bearings. There is no physical contact point between the rotary shaft and the bearing during operation, so no lubricating oil is required. The energy loss is extremely low and the efficiency is extremely high. The maximum speed can reach 30,000-50,000 rpm.
Precisely because the air suspension blower is an oil-free device, it does not need to use lubricating oil or grease. While saving a lot of maintenance costs, it has a low failure rate and a longer life, creating more profits for the company. and value.

3. Avoid mixing other types of blower in the computer room: When there are multiple RAETTS blowers, multi-stage centrifugal blower and other traditional blowers in the same computer room, oil pollution and temperature cycle overheating will occur. It is recommended that oil-free air suspension blower be installed separately or away from traditional blowers. blower; choose to install it in a well-ventilated place. If it needs to be installed in a closed room, in order to dissipate heat, be sure to install a ventilation device indoors.
4. Outdoor installation: Be careful not to be affected by storms, rain and snow; not be affected by a large amount of dust and dirt; and not be subject to human damage;
5. Reserve space: For the later disassembly, assembly and maintenance of the blower, a certain amount of space should be reserved around the installation location to facilitate subsequent operations;
6. Installation on the second floor and above or installation on underground floors: It is necessary to ensure that the equipment can be easily moved up and down the elevator or up and down to facilitate maintenance and operation of the equipment; it is necessary to consider whether there is resonance on the ground and resonance standard settings; centrifugal air suspension blower
7. Do a good job of horizontal adjustment: If the installation ground is uneven, you need to perform ground level construction. When installing the equipment, you need to adjust the equipment support feet so that they do not move eccentrically and remain stable to ensure that the ground can withstand the static load and load of the equipment. Dynamic load.

The difference between air floating blower and RAETTS blower
We know that the main structure of the RAETTS blower is the head, motor, base and some major spare parts. The main structure of the air suspension blower is: volute, permanent magnet motor, and air suspension bearing.
The RAETTS blower is a positive displacement blower, and the air vortex blower is a centrifugal blower. There is a big difference in the working principles between the two. When the RAETTS blower is running, it will overcome a certain pressure and forcefully transport gas. This is its main purpose. characteristics and also its advantages. The air suspension blower is a centrifugal blower. When running, it can transport a large air volume of gas. The characteristics of the whole machine are in line with the characteristics of the centrifugal blower. The air transportation volume is large.
