# DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF ELECTRIC BLOWER FOR FORGE OR FURNACE

ABSTRACT
During forging or furnace operation, air is the utility that should be available at all time in order to ensure a smooth and standardized operation.
Supplying air manually will reduce productivity and more man hour to accomplish a given task.
Thus, an electric blower was designed in this regard with an efficient electric motor as the driver. The suction conditions and other application data are appropriately used to calculate the design parameters such as: suction specific speed, the power input to the blower, the inlet and outlet velocity , the twisting moment of the impeller shaft etc.
The principle adopted in this design is that the impeller was made of a close type because of the level of pressure needed to carry out blowing operations in a furnace. The blower was designed to convert driver energy to kinetic energy by accelerating it to the outer rim of the impeller and the impeller driven by the connecting shaft adds the velocity component to the air by centrifugally casting the air away from the impeller vane tips.
