The M22456-1 Carbon Rotor is the main part of the air pump for your portable kerosene or diesel fired heater.
This M22456-1 Carbon Rotor fits inside the pump ring body on the back of the motor and with the carbon blades and plastic insert makes up the components of the air pump for your portable kerosene heater.
The M22456-1 Carbon Rotor can be purchased as a complete kit which will include the 1 of parts number M22456-1 Carbon Rotor, 4 of part number M8643 1/2 Carbon Blade vane and 1 of part number M22009 Plastic Insert. The can be ordered under part number PP204.
The M22456-1 rotor is driven directly by the motor and is attached to the motor shaft by means of a plastic insert. As the motor rotates, the carbon blades travel outward rubbing against the inside surface of the steel pump body.
The rotor's position inside the pump body is such that it is not concentric with the pump body and a .003/.004 of an inch gap is set at the uppermost quadrant.
As the motor rotates, the air between the blades is compressed and routed to the nozzle through the air line.
The carbon rotor blades will wear out after time and cause the output filter to fill with carbon particles.
Replacement of the output filter and carbon blades should be done on a regular basis.
