8. GAS RECIRCULATION

RECIRCULATION BLOWERS FOR A SMOOTH CIRCULATION

Blowers are used to convey gases within a circuit. Mainly gastight blowers from Becker with KF flanges are integrated in applications to avoid losses of expensive gases. The contactless and dry-sealing blowers from Becker behave neutrally towards the applied gases. Excessive heat can be dissipated by the specific use of individually adjusted gastight heat exchangers from Becker.

APPLICATION EXAMPLES FOR BLOWERS ( Markets are listed below )

Recirculation of inert gases in laser fusion 3D metal printing machines
