How many types of air movers does XPOWER offer?

XPOWER offers a complete line of air movers to cover all drying requirements. From 1/8 HP to 1 HP, XPOWER has four different product groups – Series 200,  400,  600 and 800 air movers with a wide variety of models from which to choose, to suit every industry from restoration to janitorial and sanitation.

The main difference among XPOWER’s Series  200, 400, 600 and 800 is the power output, which controls the air flow level. XPOWER’s Series 200 Series offers 1/8 and 1/5 HP, the 400 offers 1/4 HP, while the 600 offers 1/3 HP and 1/2 HP. The Series 800 produces the strongest air flow in its category, offering either 3/4 HP or 1 HP.
Each Series is designed for various markets that have diverse air flow requirements.

Why does XPOWER use P or X in the model names?

P and X stand for different materials used to make the housings. “P” stands for polypropylene, or abbreviated as PP, while “X” is for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, or abbreviated as ABS. ABS is the material commonly used in football helmets.

Both Polypropylene and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene are XPOWER’s preferred housing materials.

What is Polypropylene (PP)?

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer made from monomer propylene. PP is rugged, resistant to chemicals, corrosion and weather as well as extremely durable and lightweight.

What is Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)?

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a material that combines the strength and rigidity of Acrylonitrile and Styrene polymers. ABS materials are tough and resistant, yet they are lightweight and easily accept color.

How does XPOWER make its housing?

XPOWER uses an injection molding method. Compared to conventional Rotomolding injection molding is much faster and produces a more precise and uniform product.

What is Injection Molding?

Injection molding is a unique manufacturing process for producing parts from thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. Essentially, injection molding is the shaping of rubber or plastic articles by injecting heated material into a mold and allowing the material to cool to take on the shape of the mold. Injection molding is an optimal production process that allows for fast precision manufacturing.

What is Rotomolding?

Rotomolding is the process of filling a hollow mold with a shot weight material. It was a slow process used in the 1940s, and it rotates the material slowly to soften and stick the material to the walls of the mold.
