What is a Spark Resistant Blower?
Sometimes referred to as an “explosion proof” blower, a spark resistant blower or motor is a specially designed component in your ventilation system that can be used to ventilate rooms that may contain combustible compounds. It ensures the safety of the technicians in the room and protects the building from explosion or fire that can be caused if these compounds come into contact with a spark.
The preferred material used to make these blowers is aluminum, however plastics, monel and fiberglass can also be used. There are different categories for spark resistant blowers that work best in different circumstances. It’s important to know which category your industry would fit in.
Spark Resistant Categories
The AMCA is the governing body on spark resistant motors. They classify the blowers into three categories that are ideal for varying industries. The categories include:
- Type A – This type offers the most spark resistance. It would be ideal for industries where it is very common for combustible materials to be ventilated. This type is usually always made of aluminum and is constructed in a way that no material rubs on any other material to create a spark.
- Type B – Offering medium protection, this type is good for industries that don’t often come into contact with volatile materials, but might every now and then. It’s important that this type is built from non-ferrous materials and that the rotating fan does not come into contact with anything that can cause a spark.
- Type C – With minimal protection offered, this type should only be used as a precautionary measure. It is the least expensive to install and only requires that the contact between components is reduced, not eliminated completely like in Type A.
