Hitachi E Series Vortex Blowers

Hitachi E Series Vortex Blowers

High Volume Compressor Blower

The E Series High Volume Vortex Blower is a smaller more efficient Blower that generates air by non-interference, single path air compression, enabling greater efficiency for larger air volume applications.

Versatility of Design

  • The E-Series Vortex Blower can be utilized in both discharge and suction applications.
  • The E-Series Vortex Blower is designed to provide non-pulsating air flow.

Oil-less Design

  • 100% oil-less, environmentally friendly design
  • Hitachi VB E-Series does not contribute to environmental emissions

Flexible Installation

  • The HITACHI Radial Vane Impeller Design enables operation in either a Suction or Discharge application with the same efficiency, giving the E-Series Vortex Blower the capability to be used in a variety of applications.

Industry Leading Sound Levels

  • Sound levels as low as 49 dBA.

Space Saving

  • Unit is compact in overall dimension.

A cup shaped impeller design minimizes turbulence maximizing air volume production. Hitachis blower impeller design and single path air compression lets you use smaller blowers for large air volume applications. You save money by purchasing a Hitachi blower that costs less than competitive blowers and makes the same or more air.

Hitachis E Series Vortex Blower can be used in a variety of applications. The Hitachi radial vane impeller design allows operation in either direction with the same efficiency.

Versatile Design

  • Suction and discharge application
  • Non-pulsating air flow
  • Blower works in both direction (vacuum or pressure) with similar efficiency

Oil-Less Air

  • Oil-Free air
  • Zero harmful emissions
How it Works

Hitachis blower creates compression between the impeller and blower casing forming compression pockets in each impeller vane.

  1. To operate, air is drawn through the inlet by the rotating impeller.
  2. Air moves outward radially in the casing (by centrifugal force) to form "vortex flow."
  3. During this rotation, amounts of air progress from one compression pocket to the next.
  4. This process is repetitive and builds vacuum or pressure.

Spencer Cross Referencing

eCompressedair supplies Hitachi regenerative vortex blowers. The table below shows the Hitachi model that is equivalent to a corresponding Spencer blower model.

Spencer Turbine manufactures regenerative blowers in Windsor, Connecticut. Before Spencer manufactured their own blowers they distributed Hitachi vortex blowers. The specifications and even model numbers are similar. Hitachi has manufactured regenerative blowers since 1969 and is the largest manufacturer of blowers in the World.
