2 Types of Blowers
A hot air blower—sometimes called an industrial heater blower or simply a heat blower—is a handheld device used for various industrial heating purposes. Like heat guns, hot air blowers heat and blow air to weld thermoplastics used in commercial roofing for example. Hot air blowers provide convenient, continuous operation, and you can adjust the temperature as needed.
High Pressure Blower
High-pressure blowers are devices that create an intense blast of air. They can be used for everything from cleaning dust off machinery to assisting in metalworking. Unlike hot air blowers, high-pressure blowers aren’t air heaters—meaning they don’t produce heat.

Both hot air and high-pressure blowers are used in various industries for varying purposes. Check out the guide below for a comprehensive breakdown:
How does a heat blower work?
Industrial heat blowers draw air through a filter to remove dust particles or other contaminants. The air is then heated to the desired temperature by passing it either over a heating element. This hot air is blown over the product that needs to be dried or cooled using an axial fan.
Where are blowers produced?
Our range of both high-pressure blowers and heat blowers are produced in Switzerland.
What is thermocouple placement?
A thermocouple is a temperature sensor used in industrial heating to measure the amount of heat produced by a heating device. Thermocouple placement is the process of choosing where to place the thermocouples on a given element. A typical thermocouple placement is through the center of the element until it extends just past the end of the element. This process is important because it affects how accurate your temperature readings will be.
