General Equipment Company introduces the GP8 and GP8H portable gas-powered air ventilation blowers, which can accommodate most non-hazardous confined space requirements. These compact units are ideal for supplying fresh air around construction sites, removing toxic and noxious atmospheres from confined work spaces, aiding in detecting sewer line leaks, and providing fresh air for personnel inside tanks and vaults.
The GP8 is equipped with a Briggs & Stratton 3.5-horsepower, 3,600-RPM engine, whereas the GP8H comes with a Honda 3.5-horsepower, 3,600-RPM engine. An adjustable governor with manual speed control allows the operator to vary the blower volume as needed.
Featuring 8-inch diameter inlet/outlet sizes, the blowers are third-party rated to deliver a free airflow of 1,561.6 CFM, or 1,066.2 CFM with two 90-degree bends in the hose. Both models are constructed of heavy-gauge cast aluminum for superior resistance to external field damage. Furthermore, the blowers are spring mounted on skids to reduce vibration. Even with the use of high-strength materials, the units weigh just 56 pounds, making them easy to transport around the jobsite.
In business for more than 50 years, General Equipment Company is a family-owned manufacturer of earth augers, ventilation blowers, asphalt cutters and surface preparation equipment.
