COMPETITOR PLUS™ blowers are designed to be interchangeable with equivalent sizes of Roots Universal RAI®, and many Sutorbilt® California Series B and F, and Legend™ Series L and P blowers. COMPETITOR PLUS models are rated up to 15 PSIG discharge pressure or 16" Hg dry vacuum. In addition to interchangeability, Competitor Blowers have superior features ordinarily found only on premium blowers - see table below.

Timed with hardedened, precision helical gears, keyed to the rotor shafts (NOT taper fit spur gears as offered by all other manufacturers, which have greater backlash, and can slip and lose timing). Helical gears are quieter, reducing mechanical noise.
Double Row Ball Bearings
For increased strength compared to single row bearings offered by competing brands. This feature increases bearing life by as much as 50% compared to competing brands.
Rotors with Integral Shafts
COMPETITOR PLUS™ blowers are available in two-lobe or tri-lobe variations. The tri-lobe variation offers reduced pulsation and lower noise levels. The two-lobe variation is ideal for processes with heavy contamination. For vibration free operation all rotors are dynamically balanced. Shafts are integral to the rotors, which prevents loosening over time.
Positive End Clearances
Eliminates the risk of shifting end clearances when installing or removing drive components.
Polished Sealing Surfaces
All shaft surfaces in contact with sealing members are polished to reduce seal wear and risk of leakage.
Every COMPETITOR PLUS™ blower is factory tested to assure you of the highest quality. While some manufacturers perform only sample testing, we go the distance to insure that your blower meets our rigid ISO 9001 registered quality standards.
