AboutBlower Application Company, Inc.
Blower Application Company, Inc., headquartered in Germantown, Wisconsin – USA, has been working with customers around the world since 1933 and solving a wide variety of waste and scrap handling problems. Our founders, Charles H. Jackson and William T. Kussmaul, were both over 60 years old when they pooled their extensive experience in pneumatic conveying and other uses of air in industrial processes to form the company. From the day it was created, BloApCo’s growth has been based on providing quality innovative products and services to its customers. Today, whether you travel to Europe, Africa, Asia or North and South America, you’ll find dependable, durable BloApCo products hard at work.
If your company needs to dispose of paper, foil, light metal, wood pallets and skids or plastic, one of our systems can provide the answer. Designed and built in our Germantown, WI, plant, our products fall into two main categories — shredding and trim handling systems. All BloApCo shredders use our patented “Pierce-and-Tear” shredding concept. Ripping teeth, mounted on three shafts, counter-rotate at different speeds to “Pierce-and-Tear” material into irregular-sized pieces which can be conveyed easily into hoppers or deposited into balers, packed into refuse hoppers or into self-contained energy-generating systems. Our shredders handle corrugated paper, polycoated paper, wooden pallets, 50-gallon drums and 8-by-8-inch blocks of wood. BloApCo shredders can handle a corrugated box a second; a stack of eight plastic molded chairs takes 15 seconds and a nest of several (more) fiberglass hulls or decks for water jet skis takes about a minute to destroy. Our largest shredders, using the same patented “Pierce-and-Tear” ripping action, can shred entire car bodies and chassis, including the engine block. BloApCo shredders offer several unique advantages, setting them apart from competitors:
- LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION — It requires much less horsepower to tear apart scrap than it does to cut, beat or shear, lowering operating cost.
- LESS NOISE — High torque and low speeds provide BloApCo with the quietest shredder available operating below 80 dB.
- LESS DUST — Pulling the material apart at very slow speeds produces minimal dust, prevents throw-outs and eliminates potential fires.
- LESS MAINTENANCE — “Pierce-and-Tear” technology utilizes low RPM ripping shafts that eliminate machine vibration, giving the longest component wear-life over any other shredding technology.
Safety devices include automatic jog reverse and overload relays and a safety overweight plate built
