Side Channel

Some technologies are so good that it is hard to improve them. Side channel blowers from Elmo Rietschle are such an example.  They have proven their reliability in service for many decades, performing flawlessly day in and day out with virtually no down time.  Noise levels have been lower than that of most other vacuum pumps and compressors.

Our side channel blowers are available in a wide selection for performance ranges up to 3,000 m3/h and differential pressures of up to 1,000 mbar. They cover the most varied requirements flexibly and powerfully.

The G-Series side channel blowers feature voltage range motors for 50 and 60 Hz in protection class IP 55 (Insulation class F) and are UL 507 and CSA 22.2 No. 113 approved. This makes them the ideal solution for worldwide use:  They can be used without modifications or tests in Europe, Asia and America.  They are mostly available ex stock and with ATEX certification.
