The Spencer Engineering Edge is indispensable when you are faced with handling flammable, explosive, unstable, toxic or hazardous gases and are not able to change the process that requires or produces them. Hermetic and custom blowers and gas boosters can be built to handle methane-rich landfill and digester gases, flue and stack gases, radioactive waste gases, acid fumes, natural gas, etc. Maximum parameters include temperatures to 1100°F, housing design pressures to 1000 PSIG, operating pressures to 500 PSIG.
We create cost-effective designs that meet your needs in the most sensible way. For example, if you have a process generating corrosive gases or fumes that might destroy a carbon steel or cast iron blower, we may offer special coatings for components in the gas stream or special materials of construction such as 316L stainless steel to deliver more blower longevity.
Nuclear industry experience
Spencer made the first gas boosters approved for use in nuclear breeder reactors. Our special high-pressure gas boosters with hermetically welded seams and internal electric motor are virtually leak-free; shaft seals are not required. We have lengthy experience with nuclear power plant blowers and gas boosters for component cooling, process ventilating, off-gas systems and LOCA (Loss of Coolant Accident) systems.
Spencer is a trusted vendor for the most critical air and gas handling applications in the world. Some examples:
