Side Channel Blowers

Side channel blowers are used for applications which require more pressure or vacuum power than a centrifugal blower is able to provide. The compression procedure is absolutely oil-free and provides applications where pollution of the gas is not allowed. There are many application areas of side channel blowers, both in pressure and vacuum operation.

Side channel blowers are used for a wide variety of applications in the following industries:

  • Food and beverage industry
  • Paper and printing industry
  • Medical technology
  • Packaging industry
  • Water aeration and treatment
  • Textile industry
  • Plastics industry
  • Manufacturing industry
  • Environmental technology
  • and many more

Besides standard side channel blowers, I.VA.CO. range of products includes also ATEX single and double stage blowers, certified according to UE directive. These ATEX side channel blowers guarantee an adequate protection level fro 3GD classified areas, where the occurrence of explosive atmosphere is less probable. 


  • Flow rate: 20-2500 (m3/h)
  • Pressure: 0 ÷ +1000 (mbar rel)
  • Vacuum: 0 ÷ 700 (mbar rel)

I.VA.CO. has developed the SC-HT series to convey gases at high temperature inside the blowers. Unlike standard blowers the HT series can, indeed, handle gases up to 200ºC. High temperature side channel blowers have peculiar constructive characteristics like the thickness and diameter of the impellers as well as specific strategically dislocated bearings, that allow the gas to flow inside the blower by maintaining the process temperature, without the need of been cooled down at the inlet or re-heated at the outlet. This new products help saving time and resources. 

I.VA.CO. side channel blowers series SC-INV is made to be used with frequency converter. This device controls the capacity and the speed of the blower, by improving its performances and allowing the smallest blowers to be implemented without any loss of capacity. The use of frequency converters is particulary recommended for applications with variable operating loads in order to keep the pressure and the flow constant.
