IM-30 / IM-40 40-400 HP

Industry-Exclusive Design

The Inovair IM-30 and IM-40 are the industry’s most flexible high-efficiency blowers. Specifically designed to provide the lowest total cost of ownership with industry leading efficiency, unmatched reliability, and ease of maintenance, these blowers are the right choice for any municipality.

The IM-30 and IM-40 are the industry’s only modular blower design, able to be deployed as single units or in a stacked configuration. Each module in a stacked configuration can operate completely independently, allowing a redundant blower to be installed in the same footprint and reducing installation costs. Utilizing the standard weather resistant enclosure, the IM-30 and IM-40 can be installed outdoors, further reducing installation costs. As the focus for all of Inovair products is on premium efficiency, the IM-30 and IM-40 can dramatically reduce a plant’s capital and operating costs.

Thanks to the use of industry standard components such as premium efficient TEFC motors and non-proprietary 60 hertz VFD’s, the electrical complexity in Inovair blowers is substantially reduced compared to other high efficiency blower technologies. The low maintenace requirements for the IM Series are typically performed by plant personnel. As with all Inovair products the IM-30 and IM-40 are designed, built, and supported in the USA from our Midwest campus.
