It works perfectly fine. In fact, I could have got a 1/4 HP and had enough wind. These blower are for industrial application and are much noisier than the Ventus blowers. However, they can be silenced by building an insulated enclosure around them. I have mine in another room. You can find their website at www.grainger.com .     I hope this information is helpful.   Steven Durham Portland, OR       -------Original Message-------   From: Residence Organ List Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2002 7:54:39 PM To: Residence Organ List Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Small blowers   Hi, Dennis   Can you give more particulars on the Grainger blower you used?   Thanks,   Jan Van Der Stad   ----- Original Message ----- From: Pipewheezr@aol.com To: DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org Sent: Wednesday, October 23, 2002 8:54 PM Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Small blowers     Hi all, I used one of Graingers big blowers to run the whole shebang for lack of space. It is louder but with a little careful insulating it is almost silent, like the expensive blowers. Have fun Dennis

I =   put on a 5 HP single phase motor. I called the Grainger tech line asking = what single phase motor to substitute for the three phase. They suggested to switch to a 5 just to be safe. The guy said they are really not supposed = to do that. I the blower was sent with the 3 phase and exchanged it at the = local warehouse. You can buy just the blower than buy the motor and pulley = drives that give you what you want. The static at the blower is 11" and about a thousand cfm. After that I = built blower to get rid of the air noise then to the blower regulator set at 6" = WP. But it has worked just fine, and it is in the my office but that is = outside in a corner of the shop. I put a BIG truck air filter on to keep the dust = and grinding grime out. The whole deal was about $750.00 3 or 4 years ago. Well, of to work.
