GP8 Non-Hazardous Location Air Ventilation Blower
Available from General Equipment Co
General Equipment Company's GP8 and GP8H portable gas-powered air ventilation blowers can accommodate most confined workspace 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.
The blowers are third-party rated to deliver a free airflow of 1,561.6 CFM, or 1,066 CFM with two 90-degree bends in the hose. Both models are constructed of heavy-gauge aluminum and steel for superior resistance to external field damage. Even with the use of high-strength materials, the GP8 weighs just 56 pounds, making it easy to transport around the jobsite.
