    Why are Cup Motors Used in Blowers?

    Use of brushless dc motors is growing faster than that of any other motor type. Their application in blowers is no exception. Among the many benefits these motors offer is the ability to finely control speed — as everything from fixed speed to blowers run under pulse-width modulation (PWM) for full control of direction and rpm.

    Sealless Booster Pumps Reduce Maintenance Costs

    How many times have you heard: "The windows on the school bus are foggy and there's no heat on the bus. My kids are cold!" Clearly, you know there is a problem with the mechanics of the school bus. Unfortunately, you already know the culprit; the booster pump has failed again. Yet another bus has to be taken out of service for expensive repairs, which cost time, materials, and labor. Wouldn't it be nice if you could completely eliminate this recurring problem? You can, with brushless. seal-less pumps (School Bus or Heavy Duty Bus), but how does this benefit you?
